A Vintage Outing

Vintage Welcome

On Saturday we headed out with the Michie’s to the Vintage Fair in Southend. What a delightful day we had. GiGi & I spied the map as we were approaching and ran over to have a look. I knew for sure I wanted to go on the Carousel!

Foxy CarouselGiGi Queens WalkWe looked around from stall to stall. GiGi was on the hunt for a new kerchief, but she couldn’t find one she liked. I, as you know, love collecting all things “foxy” and spotted a great little plastic treasure. It was a vintage fox toy from the 60’s. So, I am adding him to my collection.

We got very hot walking around, all my fur didn’t help, so, we decided it would be best if we went for a stroll. Jennifer and GiGi wanted to go to Laduree, so happily, we men obliged them.  What a delightful event that was, I couldn’t wait to get through the door, I was licking my whiskers just thinking about it.

GG & Foxy LadureeGiGi had an iced chocolate and I enjoyed 2 lemon & thyme and 1 vanilla macaroon. They were to die for. After that we headed over to the National Portrait Gallery to take in the BP Portrait Awards and then home on the late afternoon train.  What a lovely day spent in good company!
