Classic Car Boot

Back at the tail-end of the summer I nipped along to the Classic Car Boot event on the Southbank.

It was great fun with all sorts of fantastic old vehicles bursting at the seams with second-hand and vintage goodies.

It was a pretty grey day - so the bursts of colour gave everyone a real boost!


One of the main reasons I went along was to check out how other people are running their mobile businesses.

Two that especially caught my eye were the vintage clothes shop run out of a horsebox...

and 'chalky van' - a creative arts project where the idea is to promote recycling in all its forms.

The van is painted in blackboard paint so everyone can leave a message.

But even those without 'cool vehicles' had made their vans and cars work for them as venues. 

Lots of inspiration too in style terms..


And for those looking to pick up some ideas for 'making'...


That Mr Hemingway has hit just the right note with this latest offering.
