The first Brighton Vintage and Lifestyle bloggers meet up

Just a quick post to let you know about something that I've been setting up behind the scenes with Hayley and Mat.  We thought it would be nice to have a little meet up for all the bloggers and vintage-types in and around Brighton.  It's on the 30th July (the Tuesday after next) at Cotton Tail Club at Above Audio on the Seafront.
Here is the facebook event for a bit more info.

We felt it was about time that all those people you see online but have never met in real life could get together, socialise, network, maybe buy a few bits and bobs and generally have a lovely time.

If you click that you're attending, you'll be in with a chance of winning a bottle of Bootlegger whiskey courtesy of our lovely sponsors, and even if you don't win, there is a free Bootlegger cocktail waiting for you (while stocks last of course)!  As ever with the Cotton Tail Club, all cocktails are half price (my favourites are the London to Brighton, Mai Tai and Waters of March - yes I've gone through the whole menu).

Entertainment will be provided by your favourite trio of vintage wax-spinners, The Gin Slingers.  We (for I am one of said Gin Slingers) will be playing the best the 1930s-'60s have to offer - the hottest rhythm & blues, rockin' roots of rock 'n' roll, big band swingers and many more, all on lovely, shiny vinyl.

As well as delicious cocktail deals and tunes to shake your tail feather to, we also have lots of lovely stalls showcasing the best of Brighton businesses (go alliteration!) including:

·         Ladies and gents accessories from Hove boutique, Bobby & Dandy

·         Bespoke hats and headpieces from vintage inspired milliners, B Millinery

·         Gentlemen's attire from Mr Southern Retro, Mat

·         Handmade swing trousers from Jimmy the Stitch

·         And FREE goodie bags from Beyond Retro

So, if you're free on the 30th and fancy popping by - whether you're a blogger, vintage or just fancy a sip on a Gingerbread Manhattan, do come along.

  1. This sounds awesome, though I don't live in Brighton, I am a fan of the town and can easily get there by train. It's a shame that I am working the next day otherwise I would have joined you. It would be really good to meet up with fellow bloggers, especially as I am quite new to this! !
