Gosh what a week I've had!
I got one of the last dream items on my list of dream items.
The GEC WELTRON 2007 model. The ultimate item in the Retro world.
It is often called a Space ship or UFO due to its space age design.
It's just absolutely fabbbulous!
The sound is outstanding! Its fantastic and plastic (My two favorite things) And the wait is now over! I have my very own!
There she is!
My first record choice was "Lets have a party!"
A 60's mix of wacky tunes including show tunes merged in with popular tracks. Its fantastic. I only bought it because of the cover, but seeing as there was a party in my stomach due to the overwhelming excitement of actually owning one of these machines, I thought it was an appropriate LP Choice.
In other news, A New Muse has launched their brand new online magazine that is regularly updated with fantastic fashion blogs, articles, interviews and more! And they've ever so kindly asked me to be a features writer! My first article was released yesterday! It's about another of my favorite things... Kitsch! Here's the link, check it out when you get a chance, and also of course, the rest of the fantastic site!
A New Muse supports local and upcoming labels, artists and more, and is currently taking art, fashion and written submissions! :)
I'm so excited to be a part of this!
Yesterday I had a surprise Camberwell Market stall! A friend had a free space so I jumped at the chance as I still hadn't emptied my car from last time, (laaaaazy) and had already gathered a HEAP of fabulous leather bags/boots etc so it was just PERFECT!
I took a couple of pics this time!...
It was a heap of fun! I saw heaps of friends and faces I haven't seen in SO long!! The weather held tight until packup time, and there was a great atmosphere :)
I also got the opportunity to go for a shop while a friend who I was sharing the stall with so very generously manned it for me!
I picked up a few goodies for myself actually! (Says she who in her previous post said she rarely buys herself things! tsk tsk)
How could I resist?
How just absolutely LOVELY is this 20's/30's Foley teapot? Look at those little pixies/elves dancing around in their little teapot garden.
I actually bought this off the friend I was sharing the stall with! I can't resist a tacky video game! Its called "Torpedo Terror" A wind up one where you flick the switch and shoot the ships! (Terrifying stuff) It'll be in the video game section of my shop soon with all the info on it! Too cool.
I got a couple of reference books including Celluloid Dolls, and Clarice Cliff
I figured since I've been selling so many of my own clothes, I deserve some new frocks for myself... Its hard to come by pretty cotton dresses with good patterns. They're always polyester so I couldn't resist these.
This one is adorable. It has a metal zip down the side, velvet trim to the waist, and comes complete with its original swing tag. So lovely
The pattern on this is fantastic but it really didn't show up in the photos. I'll wear it soon and show you. Its very very bright and flower power!
Well, I've been up since 3:45am this morning and I'm swapping over open eyes just to try and finish this off!
So GOODNIIGGGGGHT!!! :)
