Betty B's

Betty B's  ( no website)  in Margate has  a  wonderful collection of vintage clothing& lifestyle accessories from the 1940's - 1950's. I did buy some 'Homemaker' plates there (last picture).
I really love the boat( bar).That would look cool in my living room, lol.
You find the shop at 12 King Street in Margate.

my old dutch

My house is midmodern, my dad was a Rockabilly and I wanted
a  classic Pin up makeover for a long time.
So I went to  My Old Dutch  in Margate and did have a haircut &
make-up retro style .
Debbie (the owner), she is so sweet and pretty, told  me to cut my fringe(bangs) ones a week (that will be fun, lol).
Now I am working on my make-up. I'm so bad with eyeliner&co but I will take some photos when I got my perfect vintage look( promised).

wonderful weekend music Kitty Daisy&Lewis

Helter Skelter

I love vintage and I also love Margate in Kent,  it's nice to see that Margate Old Town has gone retro  and you can find some great retro vintage shops there.
Helter Skelter is one of them. Katharine, the owner, is lovely.  She got lots of collectibles from the 60s and 70s. Wonderful posters, books and furniture.

Now I only have to find 
for Mister Kay
