A Vintage Spring Fling!

  So yesterday Andrea ( and I attended A Vintage Spring Fling hosted by the lovely Alex Bloundele. The event was held in The Basement, Middlesborough (just opposite the town hall). We had a range of vintage goodies for sale on our stall; bags, shoes, skirts, trousers, shorts, dresses, blouses, tops, leather jackets, knitted cardis, rings, hand knitted-headbands and collars, friendship bracelets, purses...... and EMPOWERING PANTS!

Unfortunately we only managed to get three pairs made in time to take with us due to CCAD closing early on Fridays (please revise your opening times). We took it as more of an opportunity to get people’s opinions on the pants and got a few questionnaires filled out for our market research.  Although, in the first hour of being open we had sold all three pairs- there was very positive and encouraging feedback from both customers and fellow sellers.  All in all a very good day! ..I also managed to bag myself a sequin bargain from Vintageous rags ( ..and in the process of labelling up our vintage goodies, me and Andrea did a little swapsie with our own dresses! Another sequin number from sequinsandlies-surprise surprise!
