Neo Nana

neo- a combining form meaning “new,” “recent,” “revived,”“modified,” used in the formation of compound words.

it's not new ... we heart it

The market help, dropper-offerer, set-up help and picker-upperer graciously helped me with the Finders Keepers market last weekend. He made comment that the place was full of 'young Nanas'. It's true, most stall holders were pretty young lassies dressed in vintage poly blend. I like the vintage look, I am not full Nana, I'm more mix and match. I've never gone the full purple polyester 50s number with opaque flesh nylons.

Uber cool neo Nana look ... from the Satorialist

Bottom half nana ... we heart it

One of my fave neo Nanas ... Lemon Drop Vintage xoxo

On the way home from the first day I was wiped-out, and mentioned I needed a cup of tea - stat. Helper boy said that all the other stall holders would probably lose their shit at the mention of a cuppa and a biscuit. He coined the term 'neo Nanas'. I thought that was pretty funny. We had a good laugh about the little army of neo Nanas with their guerrilla crochet tactics and Arnotts creme selections.

Tea and a biscuit ... we heart it

Ha, neo nanas!

I'm sorry I didn't get to day hi on the weekend - I was there on Saturday helping out Emma from Red Revival. I'll be at the Twilight markets on Friday, though. :)
