The New England Shake Up! Three days of Rockabilly heaven!

What a weekend!! We did the New England Shake Up and it was amazing!! Where to begin... The crowd was dressed to the nines, both guys and dolls. It was like a three day retro fashion show and I was over the moon. I want to live in that world!

I was not able to escape my booth much but I did manage to make it to the ball room a couple of times to hear some of the bands. The music was crazy good!! There was a vintage car show on Saturday and a Tiki inspired pool party on Sunday. A mini Viva Las Vegas right here in New England!

Everyone was as nice as could be. The vendors room was great fun. We had old school hairdressers and a barber plying their trades which was fascinating to watch. They even had a complete barbershop set up. There was a full retro make up counter, authentic vintage and repro clothing, custom guitars, vintage vinyl, a whole booth filled with luscious Bakelite ... a perfect mix.

I did my best to get photos with my phone but they are just the tip of the iceberg. They show is scheduled again for next year and I know that's a whole year away but it's well worth checking their website and marking your calendar now.
