Happy New Year from Suitcase HQ!

First up, let me apologise profusely. My blogging skills were decidedly lacking through the later end of last year so I’ve made a deal with myself that I’ll blog once a week whether I have something interesting to say or not! So expect some fashion blogs & musings on new make up & a bit of a 2015 retrospective too as I try & document all the amazing things that happened last year!

“So, what’s new with Suitcase HQ” I hear you all ask, well it’s been a busy week of sorting children’s bedrooms, multiple charity shop donations & we’ve finally found a solution to Mr Suitcase’s ever expanding vinyl collection thanks to those lovely people at Ikea. He opted for the high gloss red Kallax storage system. It’s looking pretty sweet next to my cocktail cabinet but something tells me he’ll be outgrowing this storage unit soon! Check out the range online right here.

We also spent a lovely weekend with fellow ‘Vintage Personality of the Year’ winner, Kiki DeVille! Having met up with Kiki at the awards in 2014 & then have her join us as our host at SOVFest in 2015 we’ve been threatening to get our families together for a while now so we headed up to Lancashire to spend some time with her lovely husband Chris & son Arlo. We went shopping & had cake in Skipton & then went to the best retro diner ever called ‘Billy Bob’s Parlour’! Stacks of pancakes, veggie hot dogs & too many fries….can we go back & visit again soon please?

So it won’t be long until we’re announcing our 2016 dates. I can’t wait to be back meeting new traders & catching up with our regular band of stall holders & customers. There’s BIG plans afoot for The Summer of Vintage Festival this year too so mark Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th of August in your diary for Staffordshire’s BIGGEST vintage festival!

Much Vintage Love,

Gemma xx
