Well, in 2010 we did. From the 13th to the 15th of August was the inaugural Vintage at Goodwood Festival! Beautifully dressed people, Walls of Death, a Highstreet in the middle of a field and Mick Hucknall the frontman of the Faces – yeah I know!
Yes, Vivid had a Gold Date.
Don’t you wish you were there?
Well you should.
So, gold shoes, gold skirt, breakfast at Brown’s (a dark gold you might say) and you have got what you need.
We got arty at Made in the Shade (purchases pictured), tea at Spoon Café, more candy at Lickety Split and ended up in one of our new favourite places, The Roseleaf.
Imagine cocktails from teapots and you can about envision the kind of enjoyment we experienced.
A lovely welcome home to one half of Vivid who had been away in Europe, trapped by a giant dust cloud.
The week was spent in the other half of Vivid’s flat and it was a nice relaxing break from trains, boats and Frenchmen.
In typical style, we discovered some pretty food and drink places and tip-toed the boundaries of childhood with a bit of toy shopping. We didn’t buy Shave A Sheep in the end but we did buy a bunch of cable liquorice from I Love Candy (a sort of evil twin of Lickety Split).
What is it about Britain’s Got Talent? I don’t even know if I want them to fail anymore – not very British at all. But, yeah, we watch that. Trash and Vivid is becoming a recurring feature in this blog.
A brief visit to the Galleries of Modern Art. It’s what kickstarted Vivid into action and, for us, it’s an ongoing source of inspiration. Even for that little ladybird there.
