merely a day has gone past from our latest blog entry, that we have something new for you! Aren’t we productive (or fleissig as we say in Germany)?! Well, we heard about this unique event and we really wanted to give you this ‘insider’ tip.
We were invited by the lovely La Viola Vixen of the Shimmy Shake Burlesque School to visit and take part to their Costume Swap and Sale event this coming Saturday 14.11.2015. How could we decline?! The sale will feature burlesque performers selling their stage costume pieces, as well as jewellery, gloves and glamorous accessories. As long as it’s glamourous or vintage, anything goes. The event is free and open to anyone.
I am so excited to see and hopefully buy some of Berlin’s most coveted burlesque treasures, perhaps some sparkly pasties, a showgirl costume, or a rhinestone necklace. Or even some feathers!
I myself will be selling some treasures, vintage-inspired stage costumes as well as some vintage clothing. Knowing myself, every penny I make I will spend. But that’s fine, we all need some retail therapy every now and then.
There will also be home made food and drink.
IF YOU ATTEND THE EVENT, WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE PICTURES OF YOU WEARING SOMETHING YOU BOUGHT THERE!
Here is what the event page says:
You are all invited to come along to Boogaloo Studio next weekend to sell/swap and of course buy costumes!
A bunch of local burlesquers need to clear out their costume closets so will be laying out their wares for very reasonable prices!

If you would like to bring things to swap or sell simply post on the event wall or send us a message and we can reserve you a place.
Also a bake sale and sparkly wine will of course be on offer!
