I've sent off an email to get us a shelltoe table for sales. £25 split three ways is the same as a ticket and parking to be fair. Might be doing a little bboylaces promotion for Tj too. Hoping no one will mind if we use the SSDB as a stamp of quality on the day.

Will be working on gold/silver and black/white embossing on the day as well as a few other bits and bobs. Not sure how many I'll get done on the day, but if any of you guys want a logo embossing on some suede or nubuck, just give us a shout.

Nice stall, did you sell anything? Is that ben and shellshock in the pic?

With God's help I'll conquer this terrible affliction.

Yep. Just sold some Stockholm (probably most popular shoe there. Some people selling them for a fortune) and a pair of the original red stripe 80s that were too big. Smile

Ahh... Stockholm syndrome! Bloody re-seller. No doubt your prices were reasonable and the buyer was chuffed to fuck. Deep down i bet you were glad the mintos 80s didn't sell. What was the most expensive pair you saw? Some back to the future light up shizzle?

I was! Only reason they're for sale is 'cause they are almost identical to the mita campus 80s that I attacked with nail polish remover on the midsole. Wink
To be honest I made fifty quid on the Stockholm which is far and away the most I've ever made on a pair. Could have sold them a few times, I took £120, two other pairs I saw in a size 9, same reissue, were £160 and £200.  Shocked

I made fuck all! Haha! But was all good really. It was well put on and a good mix of people of all ages and interests. Could have sold your FAPE several times Dave. Same with my Bastard Sons. Got a sore throat from shouting over the music though. Geebs will tell you I didn't shut up.

Yeah, was definitely worth making the effort to get to, had a great time with GeeBee and Ben. And made a little change too, sold a pair of sample 80s and a pair of Pro-shells for a small profit.

Supe like Wanton, Buju like Banton

He can talk, that Benji Blunt! Laughing It was loud in the lab. Akin to trying to run a market stall in a club at one point.
Like having the school disco and the summer fair at the same time . . .

Some punters didn't grasp the fact that Shellshock and I were not running a branch of Size?

"HAVE YOU GOT THEM IN AN 8 mate??" . . .
"DO YOU TAKE CARDS??" . . .  
"ARE YOU GETTING ANY MORE STOCKHOLMS IN??" . . .

Was a very good day all round and good to see something like that happening outside London.
I'd be well up for doing it again, reckon we'd be better in the other room though. Was especially difficult to sell Tom's laces in the available light - shining a desk lamp in the box to try and match the colours!
Here's a few pics, two of which I borrowed from laces out IG/twitter . . .
