Happy to say that ShimmyShim will be at the upcoming So Last Century vintage fair in Beckenham, London UK. We’ll be offering greeting cards and pop art prints of microvintage fashion.
As well as pop art by ShimmyShim, there will be over 40 hand-picked vintage traders selling mid-20th century decor, lighting & design, furniture, West German ceramics, homeware, kitchenalia, brocante, vintage clothes, accessories and jewellery, original 1950s, 60s & 70s travel posters, records, upcycled goods and a whole lot more.
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!

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.
