Trader Faulkner Stories: Vivien and mother dancing
On this instalment of Trader Faulkner’s Stories we are sharing a funny anecdote he told us recently “Vivien and my mother used to get on like house on fire. My mother loved dancing (and she was very good friends with Anna Pavlova) and so did Vivien. We used to leave in a house boat in Chelsea and in one occasion Vivien told my mother “shall we go up the roof and dance?”, so they did...to the entertainment of all our neighbours...but also the paparazzi, who became a nuisance so she shouted at them “p*ss off!” Yep, that’s the sassy Vivien we love 😄

We are going on holiday for a few days but while we are away our fellow members Greta R.(@viviencollector on Instagram) and Esperanza A.(@vertigomuerte on Instagram) will be filling in for us.
We are sure they are going to do a wonderful job, so please give them a warm welcome
