Wild things make your heart sing in downtown Shepton

Miranda at IDo Vintage in Town Street, Shepton Mallet has an "Absolutely Fabulous dahlin', sweety, gorgeous sweety dahlin" window full of beautiful vintage fashion-y things.  Perhaps, Patsy Stone, the champagne-swigging fashionista would feel right at home in Town Street these days, seeing as East Somerset is so fashionable for those urbanites wanting to escape the madness of the city - for, errmm, the even madder madness of the countryside.  Who knows, after a swish cream tea and pampering in the Charlton House spa, she might even pop into Vape in the Market Place and swap her real fags for a pretend one.

Anyway, back to IDo Vintage, that zebra coat is certain to add animal magic to any wardrobe - and you certainly won't be striped up by Miranda as all her exciting stock is very reasonably priced. If you do decide to treat yourself to this wild number, please be sure not to lay down in it as you wouldn't want anyone crossing you!

What a wild and wonderful day and it's all about new movies!  It's not all about juices, smoothies and vintage stuff you know.  This afternoon, bubbly vegan, costume designer and wife of Dave the Shepton busker Janet Burden literally swung downtown to Starlight Studio Art for a herbal tea - in a funky Tarzan outfit. Aaarhh, aaarhhhh, aaaarrr, arrrrrrrr.........Oh and she told me all about her creative business Unicorn Spit Originals where she has been trading in Shepton Mallet for 3 years now and makes costumes for films, bespoke special occasionwear, fantasty and role play costumes for theatrical events and can do themed styling for videos and photoshoots for bands/performers.  Pictured here is her dapper hubby wearing a poncho Janet customised from a skirt found in a charity shop. Janet is not only handy with a sewing machine.  She has a Masters Degree in English and taught in secondary schools in Essex for over 20 years before moving to Somerset for a quiet life!  Not so quiet when Dave's practicing his busking routine though!
