And take a break in Truly Splendid’s Vintage Tea Room upstairs with delicious cakes and scones. There’ll also be top-notch street food, craft beer and excellent coffee alongside more vintage stalls outside.

ShimmyShim will be at The Big O Festival this weekend!
Saturday 1 July 2017
11:15am – 9:30pm
Church Hill Orpington
How to get there
The festival celebrates suburbia through the decades. It’s billed as ‘Vintage with a Twist’ and will be a celebration of retro delights from the 1940s to the 1980s including caravans, cars and a scooter parade.

In keeping with this, I’m going to exhibit a Sindy caravan, Range Rover, pink ‘cadillac’, red sports car, surf buggy and scooter with Sindy in full outfits.
Also I managed to design a new full range of cards this weekend called ‘Man Cards’ and I’ll be selling these along with my ‘On the Rails’ set.
A4 and A3 prints available in easy to carry tubes.
ShimmyShim Etsy shop went live on Monday!
And I was so excited to see the first order within a few hours, especially since it takes time and patience to attract lovely customers (like you) to a brand new Etsy shop with a brand new business.
It turns out that my first ever customer was a local fellow and friend who shares a love for miniature things. His home is quite the cornucopia of vintage treasures as me and my boyfriend discovered when we visited for a bit of dinner a few weeks ago. First print has definitely gone to a good home : )
More art prints to come on the shop – I’ll be releasing at least one per week over the next 12 weeks.
And you will be able to come and buy selected micro-vintage collectible objects at the upcoming ShimmyShim market stall
