The Boy and I had a very lovely Sunday a couple of weeks ago, wandering around the Bethnal Green’s Affordable Vintage Fair, organised by the Judy’s Vintage Fair lot, held at York Hall!
It was such a lovely day so I donned one of my vintage summer dresses and headed east ready to shop! Unfortunately I didn’t come away with anything but the Boy got more tweed (a BARGIN at £20 for a tweed jacket with long arms!) off a stall which offered free sunglasses with every purchase – so I’m now the owner of some lovely tortoise-shell cat eye sunnies!!
I was really impressed with the fair! The main hall had all the clothes, jewellery, bags, posters stalls but also had the Powder Puff Girls set up along one side offering vintage hair dos and make-up etc, a yummy cake stand with traditional lemonade and cupcakes etc, a stall selling discounted Crabbies (just what was called for in that heat!) and the main stage! The side room held all the furniture and home accessories etc so a really lovely mix.
The acts they had up while we where in where really good fun. There was a circus act, a juggler and Mr B…
who was AMAZING!
From deepest darkest Surrey, and with a decade of gentlemanly catterwalling under his belt, Mr.B brings you Chap-Hop, re-acquainting Hip-Hop with the Queen’s English from whence it came. His legendary live recitals have earned him plaudits, largely from top shelf gentlemen’s quarterlies.
Anyone who enjoys a good suit, electric banjo and hip hop (or Chap-hop as he calls it) can’t fail to be entertained by this rather dapper gentleman and he was sporting one rather impressive tash! Mr B is linked with the rather spiffing magazine The Chap and has a very entertaining set list of old school hip-hop and his own songs that won’t fail to have you giggling! My favourite has to be Timothy – a song about an old school chum…
His new album (The Tweed Album) is due to be released pretty soon – click here for a taster
Will be keeping my eyes peeled for any upcoming dates this fine fellow has in the future!
Just going to tag these on the end… not normally a lover of myself in photographs but the Boy is just so good I had to share these with you guys too!!!
