Have you heard of Greazefest before? It's pretty much the most exciting thing that happens in Brisbane each August:-

GreazeFest is the 'must-do' event for kustom kulture devotees in the Southern Hemisphere.

Held in Brisbane, Australia, the GreazeFest is a crankin' weekend of cool cars, rockabilly tunes, vintage bikes, lowrider cycles, low brow art, pinstripers, tattoos and vintage threads.

Coming up is the 12th annual installment of this rockin' shindig, so get yourself ready for a huge weekend of fun.

Thousands of rockabilly and hot rod fans will be rolling into Rocklea Showground for two hot rockin' nites of live music, followed by one huge day of ultra-kool kustom kulture.

It runs from Friday 5th August to Sunday 7th August with heaps of bands (rockabilly, psychobilly & a little country) on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

My favorite day is Sunday aka THE MARKET DAY! With more than 110 market stalls, a not-to-be-missed art show, hot rod/custom/vintage car & bike displays, Micheline Pitt is running a modern pin-up workshop and there'll be a kick-ass fashion parade:-

The GreazeFest displays over 110 stalls featuring vintage wares, rockabilly clothing, automobilia, artwork, tattoos, records, cds and posters, tikis, stickers, photography, hair grease and hair accessories, kool kids wear, tshirts, creepers and boots, model cars, hand bags and jewellery, sunglasses, books and anything else cool and or collectible!

If you were lucky enough to book in advance, Mimsy from Mimsy's Trailer Trash Tattoo will be there tattooing her famous old school style and there'll also be a few hair & make-up stalls as well (I believe).

Here's a post from last year where I was sharing a stall with Mimsy.

Needless to say, the day was AWESOME! It was really great to meet so many customers, I LOVE the social aspect of holding a market stall.

This year I'm holding my own stall so I'll have a wider range of products available than last year (more space etc), plus I've enlisted the help of my lovely fiance, (yay!) as my pack-mule and general go-to guy.

I'll be at Site No. 96 in the Art Village, the same row as Tiki Dylan. Who's Tiki Dylan you say? Well, he makes cool Tiki stuff! You can find him here.

Make sure you swing by and say hi! I love meeting people :D

Bye for now.
