Wow, another crazy week in the world of vintage!!
We started the week with a surreal moment on Tuesday when a procession of beautiful brightly coloured flags made their way down Gravesend High Street to the river ‘The Silk river Festival’! One flag incidentally was being carried by the Mayor of Gravesend – who gave us a wave and said he is looking forward to our grand opening!!
The weekend was Fort in the 40s for us with our ‘Make do & mend stand’ the sun was shining & we had a brilliant time with great music, dancing and a pair of our very own homemade silk parachute knickers!!
The rest of the week is a bit of a blur as day turned into the night whilst hanging wallpaper from the top of a ladder in my friend Graham’s teashop! We had a celebratory bottle of Prosecco in the tea shop afterward to reward all our hard work and just to reassure you that it tastes just as good in teacups!!
Looking forward to seeing you all at our shop opening tomorrow from noon where there will be singing, dancing, cake & of course a few bubbles!! Xx
