If you follow me on twitter you will have seen that I spent this last bank holiday weekend in York, which I only returned from last night. I was there with a few fellow bloggers as part of a press trip to explore vintage shopping and cultural options in the city.
It was enormous fun and I totally fell in love with York, but my goodness, it was tiring. Being tasked with a mission to visit every single vintage-related place in town might sound like a dream job, but after three days of relentless pavement pounding we were all completely exhausted and my poor feet had even developed blisters! It was all worthwhile though, because we managed to go to every store on our list, as well as checking out loads of the vintage-related attractions on offer – which means I’ll be able to put together a definitive guide to visiting Vintage York some time next week. I’m really hoping you will all find it useful and it encourages you to visit the city; I am certainly hoping to get back to York sometime soon and visit a few more of the museums that we simply ran out of time for.
The book pictured here is one I managed to uncover in a York junk shop (one of the hidden gems I’ll be telling you about). It was hiding under a pile of romance novels, and I snagged it for the princely sum of £1. I have a friend who is setting up her own reproduction knitwear label, so as soon as I spotted this book I knew it would be perfect for her. I am rather excited about her new venture so will make sure to keep you all informed when she finally launches!
