Boyroom Blitz : Glasgow's First Vintage Fair Dedicated To The Boys!

  • Boyroom Blitz

After scores of 'girl' focused vintage fairs and after a lot of general manly whingeing because of this, Scotland's first fair to be dedicated to boys only (we think) has finally been organised and will be taking place this February.

This generally excellent idea is the brainchild of Granny Would Be Proud vintage fairs, who started as a small vintage and retro venture in mid 2009, which has now grown into a twice monthly event, with each hosting around 25 colourful stalls from a repertoire of over 80 sellers.

Boyroom Blitz is to be held at GWBP's regular host venue, Hillhead Bookclub, in the West End of Glasgow and will take place between 12 and 5pm on Sunday 12 February. This will hopefully be the start of a regular event, which will be held at least every few months.

Expect both retro and contempoary clothing, accessories (handmade ties and bow ties, cufflinks, hats, braces and bags) retro glasses, customised trainers and t-shirts. As well as books and comics, games, grooming products and art work along with all the other goodies that you would hope to see.

Stallholders confirmed as taking part include designer Jennie Loof who handmakes one off garments from second hand fabrics combined with new linings or fastenings; Tatty Bon - Glasgow who will be bringing retro clothing and accessories; The City, purveyors of fine vintage fashion in Glasgow; Eyedresser who will bring a huge selection of vintage gents glasses, and also The Notorious Gasoline Company who design and hand print t-shirts and hoodies.

This is your chance boys, make the most of it.

12-5pm. Sun 12 Feb The Hillhead Bookclub, 17 Vinicombe Street, West End, Glasgow http://www.facebook.com/events/246517622088735/
