Enough of music and frivolity let's get down to shop stuff. It may be dark and dreary outside but it's the opposite inside Beatnik.....
Some pretty stuff to lift the dampened (if you live in the uk) spirits
So far so pretty, and then, thanks to Sas, my friend and partner in retro delights, she discovered and uncovered in equal quantities, a magnificent mountain of scarves.
This photo does not do them justice, it doesn't even begin to convey the ludicrous amount there is, or the pretty patterns, the hand rolled edging, the playful prints, the ones that are worth quite a bit but we still sell them at a ridiculously cheap price. They're all there in that big scarfy pile and I love them.
And some more
Oh, I also found this lovely coat hanger
Frank Fidkin the taylor..... How lovely it would be to have our own wooden hangers engraved with 'The Beatnik Emporium Fashion and Vintage Southampton'
