As promised here are a few snaps of my weekend in Birmingham visiting my friend Jess. On Saturday we had a little mooch around town and went down to Digbeth to have a look around the shops. We went to Cow vintage first, but I've got a full post about that to show you later. Then we wandered down to the Custard Factory, Birmingham's 'Arts and Media' quarter, which was full of really cool stores as well as art installations. Urban Village was one of my favourites, it stocked retro and modern clothing but all with a sixties twist, the shop front looked very mod but the staff were dressed in hippie gear and looked amazing. After that we wandered down to Mr Birds Emporium, it was Saturday so the 'Custard Cream' was on which meant that as well as the normal traders there were loads of different stalls in the shop as well as an in-house DJ! The range of wares was really impressive; handmade accessories, 'up-cycled' vintage, illustrated designs and you could even get your nails done!
For the rest of the weekend I chilled, made a headdress (I'll show you it properly later), pretended to write my essay, ate really good food (sweet potato wedges are our speciality now!) and had a little boogie on Saturday night. And this weekend I'm off again, to Edinburgh with my mummy!! Did any of you do anything fun this weekend? Have you been to any cool shops lately?
