R.E.Q.U.E.S.T: Find it if you can for me…

A Rolling Stone once told me, rather profoundly through my speaker-box, that “you can’t always get what you want.”
NEVER wanting to question their rock n’ roll omniscience, I’ve always let it be.
But as the years tick on, I’ve indulged in a regression of sorts. Just like a toddler may, say, spit and stomp over not being able to have everything at once, I find myself agreeing.¬†Although those Stones [many years ago now] told us we often can’t have it all, served-up in a jiffy on the shiniest of plates, it really takes its toll!
And with that in mind,  we took action.
Here at Judy HQ, We want you to get the MOST out of our fairs that you possibly can. We understand the wonder and whimsy of each event being a mystery, a kind of ‘will-they-won’t-they’ we don’t want to take away. That said, sometimes we too cannot take the heart-break. Counteracting that, we’re delighted to be offering you a brand NEW service, whereby you call the shots on what we bring.
Wedding dresses, plus sizes, missing pieces and more- the forum is now open! Name exactly what you want, the city you’re hoping to visit and heck, we’ll bring it along! It can even be generic – a sewing stall at Spitalfields, more menswear in the Midlands – all suggestions are welcome!
Opening the lines of communication from you to Judy HQ, just pop me an email on kieran@judysvintagefair.co.uk and we’ll get back to you.
Just like the rock n’ rollers say, ‘you can’t always get what you want.’ But boy, you can bloomin’ well try.

Isn’t it ironic? [don’t you think…]

What happens when you give three up-and-coming London bloggers disposable cameras to capture the launch of a historic, new vintage market right in the heart of Spitalfields?

The answer: The flash doesn’t work [x 3] All together now everyone…a big fat ‘D’oh!’

Nevertheless, what we were left with gave a seeming two-fingers to Alanis Morisette and that whole ‘irony’ thing she so famously crooned about; dimly lit, the resulting snaps are rather spectral and Dickensian [imagine Oliver goes to market and you’re pretty much there] and as anyone with a TV license will tell you, Dickens + ghosts = so hot right now.

Spooky [well, not really, although that last shot of the uninhabited kids pump does make me want to lock my doors..] but beautiful nonetheless. Thanks to Becky [blah blach becky] Laura [the magpie musings] and Mel [tatty little boots] for their help!

Because it wouldn’t be Christmas without a shameless plug, for any of you who missed out on Spitalfields, we’re back the first Saturday of EVERY month [kicking off again with our huge January sale on Jan 7th – click here for details]
