Dead Men's Spex at Mannington Hall


Well Spring has finally sprung here in Norfolk and next weekend - Sunday 13th May we are off to Mannington Gardens with Vintage Lover Fair.
Mannington Hall Norfolk 

Mannington Hall is a medieval hall set in beautiful gardens in deepest Norfolk and we love going there. This is our first show this year and we are looking forward to it. It is also well timed as DeadMan has just returned from a buying trip in his homelands, bringing a load of new old stock from the 1980s and 1990s.

Zoe, Judith and Carnaby bring  a splash of colour to our stall.
I love the names; Zoe and Judith for the ladies and Gideon and Guy for the men. They certainly add a bit of colour to our stall.  We also have a good selection of  frames from the 1940s through to the 1970s. We hope to see you there.

Call The Midwife's Sister Monica Joan's sight is restored.

Do any of you watch Call The Midwife? We do and last night's episode (Sunday 25th Feb; episode 6, series 7) was the one we had been waiting for. Sister Monica Joan's eyesight had been getting worse and it turned out she had cataracts. She made a bit of a fuss but Fred finally got her to have the operation which was more complex in 1963 than it is now.  After the operation she was given a new pair of glasses to wear and she was delighted with them as she could see again. We know what other viewers don't; they are an early NHS frame from Dead Men's Spex! It is always exciting to see our glasses in TV programmes and films.
