As many of you know, I regularly write articles for the magazine, but issue 10 has a rather big surprise in the middle! Taken by Candee Photography and modelling the Heyday Mary Dress, this pinup poster is perfect for your reenactment camp and already has an aged look to it!

Yesterday Mr. Mew and I went to our 1st ever vintage fair to SELL rather than buy. The fair was at a pub called The Vic in Swindon and we packed up my clothes, shoes, bric-a-brac, pincushions and Mr. Mew’s light boxes and headed for the open road. Itw as a nice venue actually, and we were well situated by a plug point so that we could plug in the light boxes.
They certainly got a lot of attention! Unfortunately people seemed to be drawn to stalls with large 80’s jumpers and 70’s handbags as opposed to 1940’s and 50’s wear. We ended up only selling a few things, but had such a good time that we didn’t care!
At 1.30pm I went onto the stage for my singing set. The stage was also covered by one of the clothing stalls, but amidst the faux fur coats and a basket of hats, I belted out a selection of festive crooners and 40’s hits in my blue Heyday dress!
At the back of the room, the landlord/ one of the pub workers was filming the scene and posted a video on You Tube. 20minutes after my set they had laready put on some more festive tunes and on came a female voice. I said “oooh! I know that song, that’s the one I do!”…not realising I was actually listening to myself!
