Christmas Swan Market at Fenix Food Factory Rotterdam

Posted by Dee-Ann On December - 21 - 2014

2014 swan market (24)Rotterdam is becoming more and more vintage hip. The Swan Market is an art fair, which started in Rotterdam but has now it’s follow ups in Dordrecht, Goes and Antwerp (Belgium). Every month you can visit the Swan market in different locations in Rotterdam indoor or outdoors. Today December 21st, I visited the indoor Christmas edition in a hall near the Fenix Food Factory. The hall is located at one of the many Rotterdam harbours, where cruise ships often lay, but in the past mainly ships transporting goods from and to abroad. The hall was a depot for such goods. Now it’s empty and used for events like this. That makes this location very special.

2014 swan market (2)All kinds of handmade products, arts, vintage stuff and special food is sold. I had trouble keeping my money in my pocket. But these things I really really needed so bad and wanted it for a long time. Like this cute little purse with bamboo handle.2014 swan market (11)

Another cuteness is this red, white wall three wheeled Thai “tuk tuk”. They transformed it into an espresso bar. Classy huh?

Lady K Loves understand the frustration finding the perfect pair of high waisted jeans can be. Shopping can drive you mad!

Hug Me Babies are the perfect pair of jeans that will embrace your curvy figure, accentuate your waist and also really comfortable to wear!

Rockabilly is taking over the Rotterdam (again)

All of my 22 years here on earth I’ve lived in Rotterdam. I grew up with wild rockin’ stories about jivin’ in Jailhouse Place, and late nights at The Flaming Star. But those places are no more 🙁 So I traveled all over the country for party’s, thinking that rockabilly in Rotterdam is gone. Until the last few months!

It started with a event called “De Rotte Tiet”. In english, translates to ” the rotten titty”. But let me explain! The name came from a parody of The Titty Twister, from From Dusk Till Dawn! Born from the brains of Jesse van der Heijden and Dennis Klootwijk, the plan is to organize a party, where you can just be yourself. Guys can be just classy lads, girls can be pretty ladies! Not like the disco,hipster and hiphopin’ folk on the regular places. The evening is filled with dirty Rock’n’Roll and Rockabilly, boppin’ tracks! Hans Worst is there to still you’re hunger with sauce, right from the grill. You can have you’re picture taken! And it goes on till late! I know, because I spinned the wax there! I danced like crazy when I didn’t spin. But the best part, I saw the older generation rockers and the newer generation in one place! So I highly recommend to go there! And I Look forward to the next edition!

Rock ‘n’Roll trip to Geldrop

The Red Fox, in Geldrop

As i was on a family vacation in Brabant, near Eindhoven Rockcity, because my grandparents had a golden wedding day (50 years), my family decided to go to Geldrop , to the Red Fox, the new shop from the rock and roll clothingsite http://www.rockenrollkleding.nl/. The shop was opened recently by Jack Plantaz and his wife Liesbeth, and they specialize in steady-clothing, Rumble59, swingclothing and dresses. When we got there, she offered us a cup of coffee and a coke, while we waited and tried on some steady-blouses. I tried on a model with nice V8 shaped buttons. And being the ted that I am, I tried on some nice pointy creep soles with buckle 😀 Liesbeth told us about how the site started as a hobby, and that it got a little out of hand! She also had ideas to get customers to the shop, for example she advertised with free beer and burgers on Sunday, and she’s planning for a tattoo artist to come in the shop! We left the store with a bag full

Born Bad in Paris

Posted by Miriam On August - 6 - 2013

DSC00175This summer I’ve visited Paris in France. Because it was the third time on a row and I’ve already seen all the highlights, I thought it would be a great idea to plan a ‘Rockabilly-day’ in this beautiful city of lights.
It’s crazy to walk through the city with 38 degrees Celsius and hope to find a shop, so I was well prepared and looked it up at the Internet.

The first stop was at BDSC00167orn Bad Recordshop in the 11th district (11 Rue Saint-Sabin). A record shop with its own label that has signed excellent French rock groups. But they also got an array of cool sound, from punk and 70s rock ‘n’ roll, to blues and hardcore. There’s even a special rockabilly and 50’s section.
A shop not to miss. But that wasn’t all, they also got a sister store nearby in the district Bastille (17 Rue Keller) called Born Bad Retro Clothing. As soon as I walked in, it really made me feel like I was in the fifties. The store was very nicely decorated and they offer a wide range of Tiki collectables, men’s clothing, women’s clothing, shoes, Rock ‘n’ Roll books, lots of jewelry and of course bags which I couldn’t resist….DSC00168
Very friendly staff who gave me the opportunity to shoot some pictures.
Just a shop to visit, whenever you’re in Paris!

And what is a better place to end your shopping day in style? To have a burger and a milkshake (or something else like a Be-bop Bananasplit) in Happy Days Diner.
A diner with american specialties in a fifties decor. In Paris you can find 5 of these diners, but also in other French cities like Lyon, Lille and Biarritz.

Schorem Barber

Posted by Rocky On September - 3 - 2012

Hello fellow Rockabillies,

This article isn’t about music, or about pin-ups. This article is about a barbershop. But not just A barbershop!

Schorem haarsnijder and barber started in 2011 with a old principle: that there has to be a place where a man can be with ONLY other man. Sure, we like women, but sometimes we just need some alone-time!

Dressed up and undressed at Sluijter and Meijer

Posted by Dee-Ann On January - 24 - 2012

Picture by Dee Ann

I had a large Gloria Vanderbilt bag filled up with a selection of my clothes and boots that I don’t wear much anymore. I knew about a very cute shop in Rotterdam, The Netherlands: Sluijter and Meijer which takes in your goods, also artwork and they sell it for you.

Marijke Meijer and Carla Sluijter are the owners of this shop, which opened in januari 2011. Marijke worked as a decor builder and designer for 20 years. Carla was the owner of Strand aan de Maas, an artifical created beach in the city center of Rotterdam. Work was getting tougher, and the crisis was kickin’ in. Together they decided to have a career change. They wanted to be a platform for artists and designers to display and sell their work. The idea of a shop was born, combined with selling new and second hand clothes and gifts.

Cotton Candies

Posted by Miriam On October - 8 - 2011

Cotton Candies is a dutch webshop with trendy and unique fashion T-shirts and jewelry with a vintage and retro wink. Everything is handmade and of each item, there are just a few items for sale, so if you’ll order something here, you’re absolutely original!
The owner of the webshop, Melina van Hilten, is inspired by vintage pin-ups, Rockabillies & Betties, the American fifties, the style icons Marilyn and Audrey, but also Paris!
Last week Cotton Candies is nominated for the Design Contest of the best Webshop in the Netherlands. The shop is totally restyled and is therefore 1 of the 6 nominees. If you like, you can vote for Cotton Candies on Facebook on option nr. 5: www.facebook.com/mijnwebwinkel
A nice opportunity to ask Melina some questions about her shop. 

How did you come to the idea of this webshop?
Somewhere the entrepreneurship has always attracted me. When I saw an add on the Internet two years ago of the company Spreadshirt, I was immediately enthusiastic. Through them you could start your own free t-shirt shop. It seemed like a fun and easy way to try it out how and if a reply would be to my designs. It was a nice opportunity to practise and play a little with my designs. My very first sale, I hadn’t seen it coming at all!
Things get moving and soon I wanted to be self-employed. After three months I said goodbye to Spreadshirt.  

Tell us about your career in the past; have you’ve always been in the fashionworld?
I’ve always had a passion for fashion and therefore I would love to go in fashion. I’ve studied Fashion and Trade and maybe now I sound very old, but at the time there were no online shops and it was necessary to have a trademan’s diploma to become an entrepreneur. After my studies I had one job in the fashion world, but then because of circumstances I ended up at the office. But after many years and more office jobs, fashion always attracted me!

Showgirl Adventure: Toronto Burlesque Fest 2011 pt.1

Posted by RubyJoule On August - 23 - 2011

I was incredibly honored to be selected to perform in the 4th annual Toronto International Burlesque Festival and was so excited to make my international debut– but the night before I was to fly to Canada, all I could think was, “I have no pastie tape!”  I tore my place apart and rang up some showgirl friends, all to no avail; and the shops were all closed.  How unprofessional!  How could I let this happen? Could I use eyelash glue instead? Oh dear– I’d have to get past my embarrassment and rely on the kindness (hopefully) of a fellow showgirl backstage.  But I couldn’t think about that now, I’d think about that tomorrow a la Scarlett O’Hara.  I had a plane to catch!

Mainlanders Mega Tiki store San Diego

Posted by Dee-Ann On June - 1 - 2011

Mainlanders Tiki Store San Diego

We were on our way to the Betty Page store in the Gaslamp District in San Diego when, much to our surprise, we passed a tiki store called “Mainlanders”. They say they’re the leader in importing and manufacturing tropical tiki products. They are the direct source for wholesale and specialize in tiki statues, masks, signs, thatch, bamboo and more. I think a lot of their woodwork comes from Indonesia.

We didn’t know where to start looking. So much nice tiki stuff to see. We started at the men’s shirts. Reasonable prices and very good quality fabrics. Also the prints we love, next to the hawaiian flowers they had bamboo and surfboard prints. Cute!Not so much clothing for woman unfortunately. But they’re forgiven, as the Betty Page store is just around the corner :P. Well they had pink flipflops with a huge flower between the toes.

Lady Jojo’s Boutique brings some glam to Edinburgh

Posted by Jodie On November - 28 - 2010

Lady Jojo's Boutique in Edinburgh's Grassmarket

I’m new to Edinburgh.  In fact, it’s been just a little over two months since I landed my two feet on the cobblestone streets of this beautiful city.

A consumer to the core, I had already researched the ins and outs of Edinburgh’s shops before arriving.  I thought I knew it all. But one never really knows a city until they’ve explored every side-street, tunnel and close.  While visiting the city’s infamous Grassmarket, I came across a little purple shop that caught my eye – Lady Jojo’s Boutique. I had not encountered this shop during my pre-arrival research, but that made finding it all the more exciting. And I knew I had to share my discovery with all of you lovely folk.

Glamrock clothing: Maximum rock and roll couture

Posted by Dee-Ann On November - 23 - 2010

Patrick, Dieuwerke and Puck

The young and fast upcoming Dutch online store Glamrock clothing is everywhere I look. In magazines, on flyers, websites and on every rockabilly- or tattoo event in The Netherlands and Belgium. Marrying couples buying their wedding clothes at Glamrock clothing, people sending me their URL. Why all the fuss about this shop? What’s the secret of their success?

The owners of this webshop, Dieuwerke and Patrick, live in Rotterdam. They love good Rockabilly music and go out and see bands regularly. I had a date with them, and their sweet little doggie Puck at a diner café, the Westerpaviljoen in Rotterdam.
