On Sunday 4th November I, my boyfriend Jimbo and my friend Rosie went to the UK's biggest Vintage Fair in Brighton. Our mission was to blog the event and try *it was hard* to not spend too much money on all the gorgeous vintage pieces. The Vintage Fair is an event featuring over 50 of the UKs best vintage sellers selling jewellery, clothes, shoes and accessories. There were also handmade, vintage inspired jewellery stands, a place to get your new vintage clothes altered (right there at the fair) to fit you and a tea and cake stand.
The atmosphere was amazing and the sellers very reasonable with pricing and you were able to try everything on. Due to this, all three of us were convinced to part with a bit of our cash... Woopsie!
Above is Rosie trying on the vintage velvet Laura Ashley dress she snapped for a fiver! Doesn't she look so lovely and elegant in it? It is the ultimate black dress in my opinion and can you believe she only paid £35 for it?! Incredible.
Above are Rosie and I (Jimbo resisted Rosie's attempts to photograph him) enjoy our tea and cake off of vintage crockery. Is it a bit weird and middle aged to say I got crockery envy? I was lusting after the little tea cup I was sipping from.
The stamps on our hands gave us entry (£2) and the ability to go and come from the fair (held inside Brighton's Corn Exchange) as we pleased. Funnily enough, we only left once to withdraw cash as some of the sellers didn't have card readers.
What I Wore
I will be posting later about what I purchased (get excited) but for now: thank you Jimbo for taking my outfit photographs, Brighton for hosting The Vintage Fair and the lovely people behind The Vintage Fair for a great event- I will be back next year!
