Holt; a great place for vintage shopping.

Hi There
Last week Deadman and I made a trip out to Holt, it’s quite close to us and a great place in Norfolk for vintage shopping. It has plenty of antique/vintage shops including Past Caring which specialises in antique textiles and clothing, and Old Town a tailor’s doing their own unique take on 1930/40s clothing.

We paid a visit to our friends at The Tonsorial Artist; a traditional barber’s shop with a leaning towards the styles and service of the 1950s. They now have a tattoo parlour on their premises with an artist specialising in Old School images.  Whilst there we got a couple of photo’s of Ewan the “shop boy”, I mean apprentice (we know he looks like a youthful captain Ahab with the beard!) He’s modelling a pair of our popular Arnold frames, the same as those worn by Bunny Hooper. They are a copy of the Tart Arnel frame as worn by Johnny Depp. The question is; who looks the best??! (We have to choose Bunny as he does our accounts!)

Make your choice....                                         1 Bunny Hooper

2 Ewan

3 Johnny Depp

Johnny certainly looks the most wistful!

  1. Obviously image 1. Poor show on the proof reading mind. Ewan we all know, but it seems you have confused the labelling on images 1. and 3. If I am not mistaken, a still from What's Eating Gilbert Grape. Mind you, I don't remember Depp playing the lead...
