Dee Time

Another London-centric post today, I'm afraid. The South Bank Centre is hosting a Vintage Festival this weekend, featuring all kinds of retro shenanigans and celebrating cool music, clothes and collectibles from the 20s to the 80s. There's a marketplace for all your shopping needs, wants and lust-haves on the Hungerford Bridge Carpark, with over 250 stalls.

But I'd like to point you at one in particular. Nancy Dee do vintage-styled design teamed with contemporary flair and impeccable ethical credentials. Their clothes are comfortable, affordable and look great. Obviously, second-hand wear is eco-friendly, but a lot of people don't like the idea of wearing pre-owned stuff. Nancy Dee get round that by producing beautifully styled retro gear that is made in a responsible way.

OK, time to declare an interest. Nancy Dee is run by two sisters, Seraphina and Tamsin. I used to work with Tamsin back in the day. She's radically shifted career direction and I'm pleased to see her new business venture doing so well. I'm happy to trumpet the good word about the brand. If you're in the area, pop down and say hello.

Nancy Dee can be found on Block 28 of the Vintage Village. If you can't make it to the South Bank, check out their web shop.
