Sun 26th Sept: Past Forward Retro@Jumbleree, The George Tavern (Whitechapel)

September 24th, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink

This Sunday 26th September, we will be setting up a stall at The George
Tavern’s fortnightly event “Jumbleree”. We will be selling vintage
clothes, vintage jewellery, shoes, and handmade jewellery.

“The Jumbleree at Shadwell’s George Tavern has become something of an
institution. Much of its appeal for punters is on-trend nature of the
experience. “We have everyone from young fashion students, to musicians
selling their records, to stylists and buyers,” explains the pub’s arts
co-ordinator Dee Sada. “There are even raw foods and handmade jewellery.”

The Jumbleree sale is open from – 12.30-6.30PM.

Films will be showing from Stray Cinema and Video Is The Only Constant
from 5pm.

The George Tavern can be found at 373 Commercial Road, E1 0LA. The
nearest tube is Shadwell (Overground & DLR).

There is no charge for entry.

See you there!

Look to the 1950’s before buying into the new high street “Midi” craze.

If you are used to buying vintage dresses with long skirts and then cutting the bottom off to make it into a mini, then you may want to think again as the new “midi” length (below the knee but above the ankle) is set to be massive this A/W season. Before rushing to the high street, you may want to look in some vintage shops, as 1950’s and also 1970’s dresses tend to have “midi” length skirts. The dresses tend to look better teamed with heels, as they add length and help to avoid the look becoming frumpy. Here is my favourate 1950’s “midi” length dress from our collection.

Early 1950’s Brown & Cream Dress.

This dress is for sale, and is a size 10 – 12, message me at if you are interested!
Love, Past Forward Retro

This is one of our favourite venues. The Paradise is a pub with heaps of character, with it’s vintage decor, no wonder it’s the perfect setting for our vintage sales!!
