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!
So, as you probably know, that most momentous of events, The Vintage Kilo Sale, calls at London this Saturday, bringing 5 TONNES of vintage stock at a meager £15 per kilo. So affordable that it makes ‘Bargain Hunt’ look like Harrods, we wanted to show off some of our favourite bits…
Appetites whet? We thought so! For all the details of Saturday’s Bethnal Green event, click here.
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!
