The Vintage Mafia's Valentine Ric Rac!

Last weekend was the instalment of the Vintage Mafia's Ric Rac Club at our new venue, The Blacksmith and the Toffeemaker. It was a Valentine's themed extravaganza - designed for those looking for love and loved up alike to basically just have a good old knees up in a really nice pub that serves delicious drinks and pies. And it was exactly that.

I did take some photos, some of which I might show at the end, but since Mr Hanson Leatherby is pretty much unrivalled when it comes to vintage event photography, then I will let his superior snaps show the night in its full glory. There are lots, beware!

We had glamorous guests.

Amazing Pandora.

The Valentines! 

Lovely Katie! 

Mai & Zack

Perdita, Holly Vintage Girl and Liz Tregenza

The glamorous ladies of The Vintage News!
We had dancing.

We had games.

And we had the famous Ric Rac Raffle as hosted by me, with prizes from What Katie Did and Hummingbird Bakery! 

But more importantly still, I did my first ever DJing! 

With a little help from Bethan...

And Jeni! 

My fabulous dress came from my sponsor Miss Bamboo - it's The Soutache Sandy!

Luckily we had the real pros in too, in the form of Auntie Maureen...

And Mr Lee.

All in all it was an amazing night and we do believe all our guests had a fantastic time. We'll be announcing the next one before you know it, as well as some more super exciting projects for The Vintage Mafia

If those enough photos for you, you can find more on the Vintage Mafia Facebook page!

As for Valentine's proper, no photos. But it was amazing. <3 nbsp="" p="">
