1940's Day!

Saturday 1st September is 1940's day in Darwen!

The purpose of the event is to raise money for ABF Soldier Charity. There will be all kinds of FREE entertainment including the Houghton Weavers, Accrington Pipe Band, Linda Dee, Billy Bedlam, Ricky Lee, Carley Miller, “Bernese Dancers” from Blackburn and if that's not enough there will be 1940's films to watch in the “Palladium“ aka The Bridgewater pub!

So with this in mind, I have been busy getting the shop all forty-fied (see what I did there?) and I dug out some truly stunning original 1940's vintage clothing to display (and sell of course)... Here are some snaps of my window...

I am loving these pics already!

But my pièce de résistance has got to be my lady mannequin (we like to call her Betty) who has glammed up for the occasion in some amazing vintage clothing and vintage accessories...

As mannequins go I think so looks pretty darn gorgeous!!

Tomorrow I am going to get other bits and bobs ready in the shop, bits of bunting and a rather fetching display of vintage brooches, vintage scarves, vintage shoes, vintage handbags, vintage compacts and vintage pearls. I will let you see when it's done!

As always, you can find original 1940's vintage clothing on the website and I will be taking lots of snaps of the vintage beauties that pop into the shop on Saturday and share them with you all!
