Today I am addressing the issue of what cap to wear and as Mr Dapper Chap has had to go out to work and can not advise me the only way to see if I looked okay was to take a selfie
No point in staying in mooching round the house, waiting for the other half to get back, when there is a Vintage Home Show to go to.
Hence the need for a hat.
So off me and Frida, my cyber green VW Beetle tootalled to the splendid Victoria Baths at Hathersage Road, Manchester where I met up with my vintage trader friends for a good chat and a look round.
It was fantastically busy and it was great to see the young people buying vintage/retro furniture and furnishings. It would be brilliant to see their homes or rooms and how they style them up.
No ikea furniture for these kids, they are to individual for that.
I picked up this fabulous writing desk/artist travel case
from the lovely Gemma of Gem's Bits N Bobs who also trades at Vintage Village Stockport www.thevintagevillage.co.uk
As you can see I've used it for my stash of greetings cards.
It may find another purpose as time goes on, like holding my notebooks, stationery, diary etc., we'll see.
The cards are made by talented friend Ruth Zanoni
A day out would not feel right without stopping off for a bit of lunch,
even if I am on my own.
Better save some for Mr Dapper Chap when he gets home from work.
