  1. So very cool! I love electro swing! It’s my pick-me-up music of choice when I just can’t seem to recharge my batteries (and I need to stay away), not to mention just plain fabulously fun to listen to. I hope you had an awesome night out!!!

    *PS* Thank you very much for your blog comment today, honey. I hear you loud and clear! Not once in six years of living in the GTA did I ever find any Bakelite while thrifting (or at yard sales, etc). Never say never though – luck could decide to be on your side at any given moment. One must always think optimistically on the thrifting (and Bakelite) front.

    • Your so right Jessica! I will think positively about finding Bakelite in Toronto…think think think 🙂 You will be the first person I tell if I do 🙂

      Electro Swing is so fun and the evening was a blast. It’s always cool to around likeminded people for an evening out. Makes the experience that much cooler 🙂
