Matt ArtPix and Arcane Publishing had a great day at Old Spitalfields market on Saturday, our first one in this London location.
The logistics were suprisingly easy to work out: take A13, arrive.
There was a handy car park round the corner, and our stalls were spacious, with loads of leg room and freedom of movement around the space.
Old Spitalfields is a stimulating environment to trade in and we will be back on August 2nd for another So Vintage London event with a different layout for the stalls and slightly different stocks - it's important to always refresh and try new things out! We are already working on it!
We hope to trade regularly at Old Spitalfields in the future, watch this space...
Here are a few pictures of the day!
So it's only two days until So Vintage London at Old Spitalfields on Saturday 5th July (11am to 5pm).
We're ready, all our stock and display items lined up in the flat... See our stock HERE, Matt ArtPix's blog about the market HERE.
We will also have copies of I Am a Muse for sale at the special event price of £6 (its RRP is £7.99).
We will bring something to fit the festival theme of the day: a French import 3 record-set of Woodstock Festival, 1970. Who wants it? It is in GOOD condition and plays well.
And we will have flyers for the brilliant Village Green festival in Southend: 10 hours of art, music, vintage and literature for only £10!
*Please note: the vinyls are not available to buy online. We only sell them at events!
Matt ArtPix has been hard at work on Part I of The Book of Thoth, trying things out... It does look good... A few tweaks required but we're there, really!
Busy weekend here... Matt ArtPix and Arcane Publishing are preparing their stocks for our next fair, So Vintage London at Old Spitalfields Market in London on 5th July! For this event, we are concentrating on Entertainment, Fashion and glamour, with a few surprises thrown in... And of course, we will be selling our first published novel, I Am a Muse, and promoting our next one, The Book of Thoth!
We will have flyers and a little press file, including issue 2 of fab vintage mag V&OAK featuring Miss Gish and Matt ArtPix!
We are delighted to confirm a second event for Arcane Publishing and Matt ArtPix: we will have a double stall at the Southend Book and Arts Fair at The Forum on Saturday 4th october 2014 as part of our new swanky library's first anniversary celebrations...
We are really looking forward to it; the event taking place a mere 10 minute-walk from our house is an added bonus!
We have just acquired a few items for our stock, just on time for our next events (news just in this morning!): Arcane Publishing and Matt ArtPix will be trading at Old Spitalfields Market as part of So Vintage London on 5th July. We are very pleased to have been selected and we hope that this will become a regular spot for us... Maybe not every months, but several times in the year would be good! We have some more exciting events lined up for you for the rest of the year, but we need to confirm them first before announcing them. Watch this space!
Below are a few new acquisitions from this weekend. I would like to concentrate on fashion, music and classic cinema icons and glamour for So Vintage, so I was really thrilled with some great finds!
80s fashion with some great illustrations!
The book itself is not vintage, but it features reprints of some of most outrageous pages from Cosmo 1970s and 1980s! Super for fashion students and fashion history nuts! 100% perfect condition!
And now for the gents... Really wonderful book, and 100% perfect condition!
I have also acquired some cute books!
Bod was apparently very well known... This is a first edition, 1966! This goes for £50 in ebay, by the way... What a find!
This is just lovely... 1972 edition.
And always popular on our stall...Peanuts! A lovely 1980 set of five!
Now we have to get ready for our stall on 5th July! We will post about our stock in the forthcoming days!
Apparently, the French town where Miss Gish grew up was a big centre for alchemy ! This series of intriguing symbols are located in a cul-de-sac named "l'impasse du chat" (the cat's cul-de-sac).
Sign 3 shows John Dee's Monas Hieroglyphica, which features in our second novel, The Book of Thoth.
