So I’ve been on a mini road trip during August getting out to lots of shows and events with the Hotties Vintage stall.
It’s been great fun and lovely meeting everyone. IG friends, old friends and new customers a like.
For the last weekend in August, I’m keeping it local and staying in North London – Enfield in fact.
Not only is this last August show one that combines my love of hot rod and custom cars with Rock’n’Roll music, it is also one I’m involved with on the organising side and is for a great cause.
The great cause is Whitewebbs Museum of Transport and the event is an American and Custom Car Weekender. All proceeds from the event will be going straight back into the museum.
Now, we are holding the event in the museum grounds, so it’s not a huge event, but it’s a new and exciting event for both me and the museum and all events need to start somewhere!
We have a handful of vintage and retro traders for those shopping needs on the green covering everything from handmade flowers and jewellery, men’s shirts, vintage and retro clothing to jewellery and accessories.
We are using a couple of the garages that usually house the vintage and veteran vehicles (including a Green Goddess) as the ‘music’ room and bar.
Each day we have two bands –
Saturday is The Danny McVey Trio and Vintage
Sunday is Sharna-Mae and the Mayhems and The Hicksville Bombers.
Doors open at 10am each day and the live music starts from 1pm.
We also have DJs The Caveman and The WitchDoctor between sets.
With catering, a bar and an ice-cream truck on site as well as the museum’s autojumble shop open we hope there is something for everyone.
The main draw obviously are the cars and with the likes of Mustangs, a Buick Special, Willys Jeep, a Thunderbird, a Fairline and our T-bucket booked in already (plus others) it looks to be a good weekend.
The museum itself won’t be open over the weekend, but I can highly recommend a visit.
They are open every Tuesday from 10am – 4pm and usually the last Sunday of the month (unless there is a special event). Entrance is £5, and with the museum being over 3 floors, plus additional displays around the courtyard, it’s easy to spend a few hours there, including a visit to their tearoom.
For more details please take a quick look at their website – www.whitewebbsmuseum.co.uk
Can everyone keep their fingers (and toes) crossed for good weather and we hope to see you there!
