  • Jason hi! Do you have any idea how one might obtain a table? Thanks for posting
  • [edit to add: Charlotte is happy to take email enquiries about Look Twice - charlottebernays at yahoo dot co dot uk]
  • A quick update.. As well as Charlotte's fine vintage collection, stallholders confirmed for the LOOK TWICE Christmas shopping event include Mary Lu Vintage with Lucy Tiffney, Sue Finn, Haggle Baggle, Socially Advintageous, and Divine InterVintage.

  • Erm. What's Upcycling?
  • Upcycling is taking an item that is no longer needed or wanted and giving a new life as something useful or creative. Also for something to be considered upcycled there must be an increase in worth or quality. Upcycled items you are may find at Look Twice are clothes and lifestyle products made from vintage fabrics.
    Please comment is someone has a better definition!!

  • Ah, that makes sense. Someone once described the pointless demolition of useable housing stock at "downcycling" I seem to recall.
  • Don't forget the Look Twice for Christmas vintage/retro fair is happening tomorrow at the Wivenhoe Business Centre, 10am until 4pm. If the mood takes you, mosey on down for a browse, cuppa, and yummy food. 
  • A big thank you to all who attended today.  What a fabulous day it was!  Because of it's success due you the customer, the quality of fashion and lifestyle collectables for sale, and  Charlotte's tireless efforts in organising it all, £175 was donated to Wivenhoe Moving Image.
  • Fantastic! Look forward to the next one.

Howdy, Stranger!
