Yesterday, I attended my very first vintage fair at my local town hall. I’d heard about it on Facebook and persuaded my mum to be my partner for the day as I’ve been wanting to go to one for so long now. As I ventured in, I didn’t have a clue where to start. There were around 50 stalls of men’s and women’s vintage clothes, shoes, jewellery and accessories scattered around the hall followed by another few stalls downstairs displaying glassware, vintage furniture and a cute, dinky tearoom decorated with patterned bunting.
We spent around an hour browsing upstairs and then headed downstairs, ending the day with some tea and cake served in pretty crockery (well coffee, as I don’t like tea *shock gasp due to the British stereotype* and I aren’t even keen on coffee either but hot chocolate wasn’t available tut tut). I had such a great day, I really enjoyed searching through the era’s from the 50’s to the 90’s and not only that, the fashion, beauty and decor inspiration around me; including the hair salon where clients were experimented on with the old school hairstyles. The atmosphere was totally up my street, classic music was playing, the lights were dimmed and the gorgeous, detailed items shone through with the cozy lights.
I only spent £22 which was an even bigger advantage. The picture below is what I purchased and I am so so happy with the shirt which was only a tenner and is such a beautiful print. I loved the fair so much that I’m going to another one this weekend (Judy’s Vintage Fair) with my brother who said he wouldn’t mind going to the next one as they also sell vintage designer clothing. I’m intending on going to so many more in the future, especially with how some of them began in Leeds so offer free entry. I suppose you can’t get fairer than that!
Lots of love…
