It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Pop Destiny's Child's '8 Days of Christmas' on the iPod and somebody bring me a brandy - boy howdy, are we feeling festive this Thursday!

Granted, it could be the E-numbers; [what? you don't eat your Calendar all at once, python-like, in a chocolatey race to the end?? Gaping windows, greed and an overwhelming sense of guilt is what today's all about people!] Putting sugar levels aside, our festivity feels, well, genuine!

Perhaps it's the tunes...the reminiscing over school Christmas dinners [1 x ice-scream scoop of mash, 1 x splash of murky brown gravy and turkey so shear, it could be stitched, Febreezed and shipped to Celine and be totally bang on-trend!] That said, perhaps it's the MASSIVE AMOUNT OF CHRISTMAS IMAGES we've been sent ahead of this weekend's events.

A London double-whammy, Saturday sees the launch of 'JUDY'S AT SPITALFIELDS,' a new monthly occurrence at The Old Spitalfields Market featuring around 140 traders from all over the land [and free entry every time.] Sunday, we're hopping over to Bethnal Green for 'THE VINTAGE FURNITURE FLEA.' An award-winner daahling, [true story - Vintage Guide to London, 'Best Fair' 2011] expect everything from chopping board to chaises longues, all for an affordable price. As pictures speak a thousand words, take a look for yourselves...

Vintage baubles [and Christmas tin featured above] Fleamarket Floozy

Toy soldier embellished jacket, Shopfloorwhore

Angelic tea-towel, Daisy Bazaar

Retro stocking-fillers, the cute and the kitsch [and a jacket that's more 'little drummer boiiiiiiiiiii' than 'boy'] = a wonderland or what?? For more details on Spitalfields, click here and for details on the Flea, click here.

You stay jolly vintage fans [and we'll ho-ho-hopefully see you there!]



  1. That jacket is adorable! I'm so excited for Christmas. :]

  2. Isn't it Leah! It's edgy yet screams i will have opened all my gifts in under 5 seconds. We're feeling festive too - 'bring me things and I shall mull them' is what I just decreed! Can you make it to any of our London extravaganzas love? xx
