|The Ugly Sisters|
The doors of the Lily & Violet Vintage Boutique were thrown open and the shop was turned into a photo booth for the evening, complete with moustaches, glasses, hats and photo frames. It was such a success that we are keeping the props in the shop for the whole of Christmas - mainly because we love any and every kind of dressing up!!!
In fact, Lisa was thinking of applying to DODS for a part in their next production. The only problem is that it is going to be a musical* and she is a rubbish singer (Oh, Yes She Is!!) plus she is not a keen musical lover.
|The Singing Sensations|
Anyway, enough of musicals and back to the panto theme.... The Lily & Violet Vintage window was based on Cinders (hence the Ugly Sisters). We worked really hard putting them together and we think we caused quite a stir!! Did anyone see them???
We were awarded the winners trophy and people were coming in all evening to congratulate us and to have a mooch around the shop. We have had some wonderful characters popping in and some really lovely comments - so, Thank You Dursley!!
It is hard to believe that we have been going for nearly 6 months - and what an incredible 6 months it has been. For us both, it has been life changing and we like to think that we are having a positive impact on our town. We like being part of the Dursley community and we love it that we can stop traffic - if it isn't our windows that catch your eye, its our outfits!!!!
Please help us to spread the word - we want to continue to stop traffic, turn heads, cause a stir etc. etc.
*We have no idea what the next DODS production is but they are always brilliant!!
*Di & Tony are a renowned karaoke couple particularly in Turkey where they are asked back year after year (or are they??? - they go anyway!)
