COMPETITION: #TINYTURNSTEN: Birthday celebrations for the Cheshire cat!
Posted on July 16 2013
Next month sees a very special celebration; Tiny our brown and white Cheshire Street store cat turns the big 1-0 on August 2nd! Tiny is as popular with our customers as our amazing vintage product and so we thought for her vintage year we should have a little celebration to show our love for our purrrfect pet! Tiny came from our wonderful neighbours LIK & NEON (www.likneon.com) of Sclater Street where Maquita, Tinys mother, still resides, when she was just a kitten and has made the Beyond Retro store her home. Tinys soft and kind nature lends itself to the effortless cool of the brick lane surroundings and can often be found asleep amongst the scarf cart or prowling our disused dairy unit like the cat that got the cream, where she is petted and photographed on a daily basis by our visitors. Tiny has become part of the family, with this being a special year for her and due to such affection our customers show we want to make this extra special and invite everybody to wish her a very happy birthday by running an exciting competition! We are asking all Tiny Fans to send in photographs, illustrations, paintings, poems (or any other forms of creativity) of Tiny via Twitter and instagram using the hashtag #TINYTURNSTEN to win a chance for the artwork to be printed on a very exclusive limited edition celebratory Beyond Retro woven tote bag! The bags will be available in all Beyond Retro stores and online with the winning artist credited. We will also create a gallery of all the entries on the website to share with Tiny to show her just how much we love her, so pens and pencils at the ready, show us what you got and remember to be as imaginative as you can! To help us wish Tiny a very happy birthday, join us at www.facebook.com/beyondretro , www.twitter.com/beyondretrouk and www.intstagram.com/beyondretro remember to use the hashtag #TINYTURNSTEN. All entries to be submitted via instagram & Twitter, Hashtag #TINYTURNSTEN must be used. Closing date for entries Thursday 1st August, the winner will be announced by Monday 5th August. To visit Tiny in person and wish her a happy birthday head down to Beyond Retro, 110-112 Cheshire Street just off of Brick lane.Good Luck.
