Vintage booze with Vintage News

A couple of weeks ago, I went on a Vintage Mafia (with honorary man) road trip!

I drove... I didn't take this picture!

Our destination was Brighton and the birthday party of the beautiful Sadie, of Vintage News and the Vintage Vanity Case fame. This lady is just a doll - she is excellent at what she does, a lovely person and so supportive of our Vintage Mafia club nights, often travelling with the equally wonderful Hayley Stella to London from the coast to attend the Ric Rac. We wanted to return the favour and help her celebrate turning one year older (and yet still so young) in style.

The birthday girl! 

The venue was the Black Dove, a really lovely, quirky pub with a great booze selection. I wasn't drinking, of course (boo!).

Sadie and DJ extraordinaire, Stella of Cotton Tail Club!


These Brighton cats know how to swing.

Obligatory VM pose!


Thanks for having us at the seaside, Sadie! We'll be back for some fish and chips on the promenade when it's finally become summer...

    2. Whatever happened to Naomi? Is she still part of the VM? I remember she was a personal shopper!

    3. She lives in Portsmouth so she isn't part of it any more - it's too far for her to come up to stuff all the time.

  8. Lovely! Im going to the southeast UK this summer on vacation with my BF. Going to Brighton for sure. If you have any tips on vintage shops in Brighton or the southeast please let me know - maybe an idea for a blog post? Or historical places to visit ( I love me some manors or castles - my master thesis is on castles)
