I know...i know...I keep mentioning Christmas, but for us small entrepreneur's we have to think ahead, well that's my excuse anyway!

Talking of entrepreneurs...i'll be having a stall this year at the Mid Century Christmas Market in Hammersmith in London. It's organised by the fabulous Bettina Scarlett, and she is a girl who knows how to throw a good party! I'll also be donating a prize for a forthcoming competition where you can win tickets to the event! So watch this space. More info below the image...

SAVE THE DATE IN YOUR DIARY FOR THE BEST RETRO Christmas Market IN LONDON coming to Hammersmith club, 11 Rutland Grove, W6 9DH on Saturday 14th December 2013 between 10.30am – 4pm.

Bettina Scarlett presents: The Mid Century Christmas Market. After the success of the Vintage Fashion Revue at the UK’s biggest Rockabilly festival ‘the Rockabilly Rave’. Bettina Scarlett is bringing her dazzling new fair to London town. If you are looking for a Christmas market that mixes bygone eras and trendsetters too. Bettina Scarlett has created a unique and innovative day out. Why you say? Well the Mid Century Christmas Market is a 1950s inspired fair showcasing glamorous companies from all over England including vintage and reproduction clothing, crafts, jewellery, records and much more. Whether you are after a cute and kitsch necklace or you want a retro rocking record to have you jiving the night away, the Mid Century Christmas Market is perfect if you are shopping for those last minute Christmas gifts.

Come on down to the Hammersmith Club and take a step back in time. Only a hop, skip and a jump from Hammersmith tube stations, the Mid Century Christmas Market opens its doors to visitors on Saturday 14th December for one day only; from 10.30am until 4pm for a knock out entry price of £2. Whilst you are there, have a hot bevy served from delectable antique china in Calamitea Jane’s vintage tea room. Looking to paint the town red that night? Well you can revisit the golden age of glamour and have your hair pin curled and coiffured in the Vanity Box’s vintage hair parlour. Go on; release your inner pin up and hep cat so you are ready to party like its 1956.

Strike a pose! Treat yourself and take a small reminder home with you from your day at the Christmas Market, make sure to visit the pop up photo booth where our photographer will be snapping away to create some retro inspired shots for every shopper. Of course no event will be complete without some foot tapping tunes played by rockabilly royalty. Some of the most notorious Dj’s from London’s hottest rockabilly clubs will be spinning killer tracks to keep you moving and in the mood.

So there is nothing else to do but put the date in your diary and head down to the Mid Century Christmas Market where our very own Santa’s helpers will be there to greet you on arrival.

Welcome and some exciting news about Kustom Kulture Forever 2014

Welcome to my new blog. I will try to keep things updated on a regular basis! Sometimes exciting things happen and I get so overwhelmed I forget to post about them! :)

But here is something really exciting to start off with. I've received my invitation to be in the Kustom Kulture Forever art show today. It will be my 3rd year exhibiting and selling at the show and it is far and away my favourite show to trade at! This year, 2013, the show got a new name (it was formally Bottrop Kustom Kulture), and it got a new venue. The venue is a fantastic abandoned mine and factory near Herten in Germany. This new venue has allowed the show to evolve and introduce an impressive bike area and a whole building dedicated to tattoo artists. Throw into the mix some awesome cars, the cream of the crop of Kustom Artists from Germany, USA, Japan and all over the world, plus alot of rowdy Europeans, and you get the biggest Kustom Kulture party in Europe.

If you have been planning on going and never made the trip I would definatly recommend going next year. Its a fun trip across europe, the ferry is dirt cheep and you can stop off at Bruges on the way!

Here are a couple more pictures of the venue, I am no photographer so it might be worth heading to their facebook page if you would like to see more! :)
