Well hello 2017! After celebrating another year of vintage with two weeks off, copious amount of Quality Street and all day Netflix binges, we are fully back in action for a new season. Armed with an array of new stationery (our favourite motivation), we’ve been busy planning and plotting for what we hope will be our best year yet!

While we can’t reveal all our special plans just yet, we do have a few resolutions we want to share with you…

More cities!
What better place to start than more dates? We’ve been listening carefully to all your suggestions and are pleased to have added several new cities to our roster – Reading, Durham, Southampton, Sheffield and plenty more to come across our three brands. Keep an eye out on our social media to see if we’re coming to your city, and always feel free to send us your suggestions.

Let’s get social 
Speaking of social, we want to bring the fun back to your Facebook feed. While we won’t be spamming you with the same dull memes and ‘tag a friend’ sessions, we will strive to share more of the things we love – think star buys from our events, upcycling inspiration and a few giggles to brighten your day.

Join the inner circle…
There’s going to be more ways than ever to get involved with our events this year. Whether it be taking up our 2-for-1 entry offers, being snapped by our street style team or even joining our staff team on an event day, your involvement goes above and beyond buying clothes – let’s start a revolution!

Greetings From Beacons!

Often a cider-sodden bone of contention, we don’t sit on the fence when it comes to Festivals – we bloody love them! Reveling in them in all their gin-swigging, port-a-loo glory, we were fortunate enough to be invited to what is one of our favourite smaller events, Beacons Festival.

Set in the idyllic Yorkshire moors, Beacons is but a fledgling compared to those stalwarts of the summer calendar. That said, just like David & Goliath, bigger isn’t necessarily better; great bands, good grub and an atmosphere  that is practically electric (literally: see neon sign above) make for a festival that’s not only memorable (well, semi-memorable at least – bloody ale tent!) but leaves you  crying into your tent bag at the thought of having to leave.

Always on the hunt for the sartorial, one thing we love about festivals is the fashion fix; gone is the world of GHDs and preening and instead comes a feral sort of confidence, all bindhis and plumage and just not giving a sh*t. Forever on the prowl for an outfit or two, here’s our pick of the crop…

And there we have it. Sleeping bags aired. Tents packed down. ‘Missing’ posters for our dignity plastered all over the town. Roll on next year!

Did you go to Beacons? Let us know below!

Scotland Ahoy!

Greetings vintage fans!

The wind in our hair. Dusty on the speakers. Vans packed like sardine cans filled with vintage bits – it’s official, we LOVE a road trip! This very afternoon, we’re off on a spot of travelling, bringing our vintage fair to one of our all-time faves – EDINBURGH! Part of the official Fringe festival festivities, we’re filling Lothian Road’s Picture House with a spot of this (and couldn’t resist sharing…)

Salvating? We thought so! If you’re in the neighbourhood, come say hello and if not, click here to see if we’ll be seeing you soon!

Retro Regards,
