What this girl bought : finger amulet, floggers, cane
This girl first came across FREAK at BBB. BBB is a great monthly (3rd sunday of the month) event in Birmingham where various kinky retailers get together to offer their wares. There is also usually a demo of some sort and plenty of chances to socialize and to be dressed up in kinkery finery whilst shopping. It’s a really nice event.
The first thing she ever bought from them was a finger amulet (the top one of the two shown below) They don’t have the exact same one anymore but they have a few similar ones, this girl bought it probably around 2003. They actually have a really good range of ‘sensation’ toys and what this girl likes is that at the fetish markets its possible to peruse these in person 🙂
This girl has also bought two floggers there when FREAK were at Festival Erotique in Edinburgh around 2004? Festival Erotique was a sort of kinky market that ran once at Edinburgh but it was mostly mainstream but didn’t last more than one event because Edinburgh is not kinky enough for this kind of thing lol.
It was a fun afternoon though because this girl had gone with a few friends from Northern Spanking who she used to do spanking modelling for and she and the other girls were all wearing matching school uniforms and tried out a lot of the FREAK toys on each other. It was a lot of fun and attracted a lot of attention from other shoppers – funny old thing 😉 The girls that run FREAK are great though they are both genuine bdsm players and have a wealth of advice to share and the toys they sell are really lovely quality 🙂 The floggers this girl bought there are pictured below – the first is as very soft leather and then the second is a short suede flogger. Both are used normally for more sensual play but FREAK do sell floggers that are more for pain too.
This girl does actually prefer buying toys in person than online. It’s nice being able to see and potentially touch a toy before committing to buy and also meeting the people selling it can give a good or bad vibe too. Often buying a toy in person will have memories attached of the event of it was bought at, or if it was in a town someplace else of a holiday, or of people she might have met at the event or at the shop.
To see what they were like online though this girl bought a cane last week to add to her collection. Well, she is sincerely hoping this will get used more by Mrs Feendish (her alter ego) than by Grimly since its pretty damn harsh!
This cane is now the thuddiest one this girl and Grimly own. It is pretty much a big scary stick! It actually just reminds this girl of the line from the ‘Quiet Man‘ Here’s a good stick, to beat the lovely lady” 😉 Right so, this girl needs to find a lovely lady to beat with it!
FREAK won a bondage award this year too, and deservedly so 🙂
