As usual, Arcane will be trading alongside designer Matt ArtPix who will have his always colourful designs for sale as well as an interesting range of antiques and collectibles!
As for the Arcane stall, here is a little preview of what we will have for you on the day:
Of course, as usual, we will have a few fashion books...
And also some surprise vintage vinyl records!
Also on our stall...
The great detective is as popular as ever - the superb Sherlock Holmes exhibition is still on at the Museum of London, only a few minutes away from Old Spitalfields (see my blog about the exhibition HERE).
It is also great timing: this week on ITV starts a new drama inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's life (and based on a novel by Julian Barnes): Arthur and George. Also out soon at the cinema is Mr Holmes, with Ian McKellen. I am also looking forward to reading Dreaming Spies, the latest in the fantastic Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes series written by Laurie R. King.
In my third novel, The Right Place, one of the characters is a Sherlock Holmes enthusiast who plays the violin late into the night and my fifth novel will be a "rural noir" story based on Exmoor and a tribute to The Hound of The Baskervilles.
For So Vintage, I have selected four of the volumes plus a packet of Royal Mail Stamp cards featuring some great Sherlock illustrations!
*Scrapbook: fashion photographs cut out of magazines of the time.
*Fashion project from a student at the West Sussex College of Art. We have an assignment letter dating one section of the project to February 1968!
Over 120 hand drawn designs (pencil, biro, paint and felt tips) together with design notes and some fabric swatches; This could be a whole catwalk collection: day wear, evening wear, night wear, dresses, jackets, trousers, coats, bikinis... All done in a very 60s style!
