A Right Royal Roundup

6 Needlebot Crafts/7, 8 & 9 Brown Street Bespoke

Yesterday was my first time blogging in a journalistic sense (if journalistic is even a word) and to be honest I was extremely nervous.  I felt like a big faker -  approaching people (eek), asking to take pictures (eeeeek!), saying my blog name out loud (*faints*). I fumbled with my camera and jumbled my words, dropped things and nearly got stuck in a dress, but in the end everyone was so nice that I needn't have worried.  Self-promotion is difficult and I find it a bit cringy, but I couldn't have picked a better place to start.

So much vintage clothing under one roof - I could hardly contain myself! The Vintage Roundup at Queens Bar is one of Dunedin's newest markets and is organised by Tannia Lee, who also has her own fantastic online store called Most Wanted Vintage. The stallholders are vintage collectors who have shops or sell online, and there were also a few crafters. I was lucky enough to be contacted by Tannia to visit and take some photos, and I was so excited to be asked!  I managed to restrain my spending and only buy two pretty dresses, although it was almost too hard to choose from all the treasures on offer.  I met some wonderful, interesting people and had a lovely afternoon chatting with them about beautiful fabrics and how much we love our cats.

The photos in this post are only my favourites from the day, you can view the rest on my Facebook page. To see Tannia's photos, keep an eye on The Vintage Roundup page on Facebook too!
