Regular readers will know how much I love Instagram! The beautiful photos and little snapshots into other peoples lives are fascinating. But I really love it for the new shops I’m introduced to. Rowdy Roddy Vintage is one of those, and when they offered to send the children a few items from their amazing retro shop, I couldn’t resist.
After moving from San Fransisco to Glasgow, and curating a fairly large collection of vintage baby clothes whilst pregnant, owner Jolyne decided to tour the vintage and craft markets (with baby Roddy in tow!) to meet people in the local area… and sell some of the clothes! They had such a great time that they decided to find Rowdy Roddy Vintage a permanent home.
Rowdy Roddy Vintage stock a whole range of items – from vintage-inspired toys and designer childrenswear, to genuine vintage clothes. Jolyne also has a small range of clothes that she’s designed herself.
The children were sent two ‘Tiny Dancer’ t-shirts from the Rowdy Roddy Vintage range.
The t-shirts are made from organic cotton, and are super soft.
The t-shirts are grey: H-Bear’s is more of a brown-grey, whereas Busby’s is a soft medium grey. You can choose which colour text you’d prefer from black, white, gold and silver (we opted for white on both).
The t-shirts are simple, but ever-so fun!
The sizing is on the smaller side, so I’d recommend sizing up. H-Bear’s t-shirt is age 2, and Busby wears 5-6 years. Both are a good fit, but with room to grow.
The t-shirts cost £18 each, and would be perfect for any tiny dancers!
The children were also kindly sent a couple of toys.
For H-Bear, I opted for this stunning retro pull along horse (£18.95).
He loves anything to do with wheels and has an obsession with horses at the moment, so it was perfect for him! The colours are absolutely stunning, and it’s beautifully handpainted.
For Busby, I opted for the Fisher Price Classics camera, which has sadly sold out on the Rowdy Roddy Vintage website now.
The camera comes with three slides, each telling a classic nursery story. The slides are easy to change by just turning the camera lens.
Busby is absolutely besotted with her camera, and loves to take it out on shoots with me. She snaps away, informing me that she’s “just got to change her lens!”, and basically being bossy telling us where to stand!
The Rowdy Roddy Vintage website is absolutely gorgeous, and you can easily lose yourself in a naptime over there. So pop over with your cup of tea/mug of gin for a peruse today. Also, Jolyne has an actual bricks-and-mortar shop in Glasgow – and oh, how I would love to explore it!
