I have a stall at Whitby Gothic Weekend this weekend.

Whitby is a seaside town in North Yorkshire, England.  It has a combined maritime, mineral and tourist heritage, and is home to the ruins of  Whitby Abbey.  The fishing port developed herring and whaling fleets and was where Captain Cook learned seamanship. Tourism started in Whitby in Georgian times and developed with the coming of the Steam railway in 1839 and the Steam railway is still there today. Well known for its association with the horror novel Dracula by Bram Stoker, its Jet and alum were mined locally, and Whitby jet, which was mined by the Victorians became fashionable during the 19th century.

Goths meet here twice a year, April and October to socialize, enjoy the cobbled streets of the fishing town , cafes, pubs and shop in the brilliant selection of Goth and Steampunk stalls available over these weekends.

Whitby Abbey ruins and beautiful coast view.

found antler fascinator

A friend of mine works in forestry and found these antlers in his woods. I have painted them purple and silver and mounted them on a purple colour fascinator. This item, spats, hats and jewellery I will have on my stall at Whitby, the Spa Theater 26th – 29th April.
