The Bank of Tinsel & Twinkle at Ridley Road market

We’ve been busy working away creating the sign for The Bank of Tinsel and Twinkle, ready to take to the Art Car Boot Fair on June 9th!

Last week we dressed in our banker uniforms and took our new bank sign to Ridley Road Market for a photoshoot with the photographer and talented film maker Phil Whitby.(http://www.ersum.co.uk/)

The market at Ridley Road in Dalston worked out as the ideal location for the shoot, positioning our Bank in amongst all of the independent traders.

Originally we considered doing the photoshoot using Canary Wharf as the backdrop but we decided on Ridley Road market because it seemed more fitting to the ethos of our bank.  Being positioned in the midst of a bustling market is about bringing trading back to its roots, a very human form of trade that is booming due to how expensive shops are.

The ethos of the bank is about sharing and exchange, we trade in thought rather than money.  We aren’t protesting about money itself but more so commenting on greed, and suggesting that capital is more useful when it is shared.

So we took our independent bank and set up amongst the other traders at Ridley Road.

Our banker dresses!

24 Apr

Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been very busy working on our new banker uniforms. We have decided upon white dresses which we can paint on and decorate as we see fit.

We chose to paint quotes onto the dresses which represent the ethos behind the Bank of Twinkle & Tinsel and to decorate them with our bespoke bank notes, along with lots of sparkly glittery things.

You’ll see us wearing our new uniforms whenever we stage our bank, and so for now until they are complete here are some photos as a taster!
