Live & Rockin' - Nostalgia Festival

Heyhey, a slight delay but here goes my second post from my recent trip to Sweden....

On the day I landed in Goteborg I got whisked off to Live & Rockin' - Nostalgia Festival in Vårgårda.  It was their 10th year hosting all things vintage, old cars, flea market, music and fun times!

May I present to you a mostly photo filled blog post :)

Very important supplies were picked up on the way.

The first day just for us to set up and be ready for the next morning as Malin was judging the best dressed contest and Magnus' band was playing which meant an early rise for us all.  We did have drinks and a little BBQ with friends at their camp that evening but it wasn't a late one.  Bed by 1am I believe.  

I did notice this sign in the room though which I'm sure Dottie would not be best pleased with!
There were plenty of doggies around at the event which was lovely to see.
Although she is yet to pick up her doggie passport for holidays abroad. 

The Event Day....

My day-time outfit: A tiki two-piece by Hell Bunny

A sea of vintage motors


Magnus with his band - Carl Casino & The Hardhittin' Dynamites 
They played outdoors by the market during the day along with others.

Lovely ceiling light - I wished I could take home.

Poor Malin in her leg cast but looking radiant all the same.
Judging the "Best Dressed" contest.

Gentleman on the left won along with the lady in burgundy.
She was wearing shape-wear even in the roasting heat!

The lovely Denise hosted her vintage salon in the indoor flea.
I was also photographed and interviewed by this lady too.

This chap provided music to our ears at the flea.

Evening Fun....

Evening outfit - Custom made dress teamed with my vintage tiki bamboo handbag
and my new pair of Miss L Fire Lola mule heels!

Drinking in the sunshine with some dapper chaps!
(boys in the band)

Tennessee Drifters closed the show.

Fun times!

That was most of it although I didn't take as many photos of everything this time.  I need to get the shopping post on here.  I want to show you all what goodies I took home with me!

Last but not least, we left the next afternoon and stopped by for some much needed pizza - for breakfast!  Lol.  Then home we all headed.

It was yummy!

Now what to wear for The Chap Olympiad tomorrow?  Off I go to set the hair!

Take care until next time,

hi there
on one of this pictures (Live & Rockin' - Nostalgia Festival) there is Denise, Vintage Hairstyler. Do you have any contact informations from her? i'm looking for her contact details since more than one year. I was working with her in Switzerland and I can't remember her family name.
Thanks for any help
