RED BRICK VINTAGE5:00 pm
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have already seen a sneak peek at this photoshoot I did with Lauren at Red Brick Vintage. It's so much fun collaborating with local creatives, and spending some time in Red Brick Vintage just added to the long list of reasons of why I love Liverpool so much. Just before the shoot, I was sat on the bench near Camp and Furnace (one of my favourite places in the city), opposite the skate park. I sat looking around me and had one of those proud moments, sat in what is officially one of the top 10 'hippest areas in the UK', surrounded by game developers, graphic designers and musicians. One of which was the lead singer of Circa Waves who totally smiled at me as he was buying his lunch (this excited me a lot seeing as I've had a bit of a crush on him since we saw them at Sound City in 2015). I'm like 99% certain it was him. The baltic triangle is definitely one of my favourite parts of the city and I'm so proud of it.
Red Brick Vintage is in the famous Cains brewery, just on the corner of the baltic triangle. It's filled to the rafters with retro furniture, kitsch knick knacks and vintage clothing. Whilst I was there I had my eye on some Beatles photos, an old dressing table, a (very impractical, but cool nonetheless) wire chair and a vintage suede waistcoat. I desperately need to take my mum here for a wander, no doubt she'd come home with the elephant table and bookends I seen. So if you're after something a little different and love a good vintage find, definitely check out Red Brick Vintage if you're in town. And afterwards you can stroll through the baltic triangle, go for a skate, grab a bite to eat or play a game of bingo.
