In Sheffield they met

May 6, 2014

Saturday was bloggers meet-up day up in Sheffield, organized by the lovely Curtise. A few of us (GiselaVixTaniaEm and Sandra)  answered the call and headed up to Sheffield for a day well spent having a good old chinwag, rummaging through the vintage market and basking in the sun.

It all started at the Town Hall steps… (photo by Curtise)



Inside, not only there were loads of pretty frocks to look at, but also some of the details were grand… vestiges of a different era.




I don’t remember what was being said but it either sent Vix to sleep or she was very pleased…


The group, after we finished going through every single stall in the market and made our purchases.


After the market, we headed to Wetherspoons for some food and drinks. We are classy so we drank mojitos and porn star martinis!


After we were fed and had a few drinks down we headed out to find some more vintage frocks and some more sh*ts and giggles.




We marveled at the amount of shell suits on display… and wondered if anyone ever buys them!



Had a bit of a walk around the city centre, saw the silver orbs and all the water features…


Walked through the Winter garden where a pool championship was happening….


And after sending Sandra on her way to meet her husband, sat down for the last hour or so that we had left before our trains left, for yet another drink.


Here’s a last one, with me included, that I stole from Curtise:


All in all it was a day well spent and I brought back a few goodies, between presents and a couple of 60’s summer dresses, I can’t really complain. x
