Charabanc Vintage and Hand-craft Boutique - Blackpool

Hi guys. I just thought I'd show you what I've been up to the past couple of days. My OH's mum has opened up her own little shop, along with a few other crafty Blackpool beauts. The shop is called "Charabanc" and inside there are multitudes of beautiful vintage and hand-crafted items for you and your home. With a range of vintage fashion, stylish furniture and quirky hand made jewellery, gifts and homeware, there's something for everyone!

My boyf and I got our artistic caps on and even hand made the shop sign. I thought I'd show you a few pics of us making it and also a few photos from the opening night!

And voila!
HERE's the Charabanc website if you want to find out more!

For the opening night I wore my structured navy skater dress from Topshop and my ALDO Calcagni wedges (which are currently on clearance HERE in some different colours! Oops, just bought a pair in red!) I also paired it with a statement bag - my banana yellow Cambridge Satchel Company 14" Satchel.

Here's a few pics from the opening night.
This is the bf's mum's vintage clothing room. You can buy her stuff from Achtland Boutique on ASOS Marketplace HERE.

These next few pics are Aunty Social's lovely handcrafted jewellery pieces. You can find out more information about Aunty Social on their website HERE.

And here's a couple of snaps taken by the fantastic photographer Edwin Firminger. You can see some more of his photography on Flickr HERE.

This is me and Fran, the owner of Achtland Boutique vintage clothing and accessories within Charabanc! (Also my darling boyf's mummy!)

Isn't her bow tie fab!?

This lovely stacking doll cushion was made by Dotty Delightful. You can see more of her hand crafted items on her website HERE.

These hand made decorations are so cute, don't you think?
