Join Miss Chrissy & Ray for a Swellagant Shopping Affair to look for that most smashing outfit to wear to the ball on Saturday 3rd of December! Miss Chrissy will organise vendors to have the right Garb ready for our arrival. We will help you with what works and what doesn’t for you. We’ll then have some afternoon tea and maybe a champas somewhere to finish off the day. EVERYONE welcome.

OK Ladies and Gents, Guys and Gals, … Here’s all the details..

You are all invited and we have some pretty special vendors setting up racks of super stylish clothes for all.. Lots of Gents Fashions and accessories. I suggest we all meet first at the Woolloongabba Antique Centre at 11am and I will take you on a personalised styling tour OR you can just wander and ask for advice if you wish.. no pressure. About 1pm we will head on over to Paddington Antiques where there is some more bargains to be had.

********NB****** I do have a 3rd and very exclusive option BUT I need to know numbers of those definitely coming before I can confirm this one as this lady will go to the trouble of unpacking some awesome vintage finds for us but only if I pre-arrange.. Can we have a show of hands please so I can give her some guidelines???

My Mobile is: 0409727888.

I will be leaving Southport at 10am sharp and have room for 3 people so if you need a lift then please contact us.

Why not car pool.. use this space to communicate.

Open to all, not just SWING On In Dancers or A Very Swellegant Affair – Brought to by Swing On In event goers.. A chance to immerse yourself into a vintage styling shopping day just for fun and to gather and enjoy like minded peeps
