1. The Vintage Fair
2. Handmade necklaces
3. Granny jewellery
4. To satisfy those with a penchant for handbags
5. The lady at this stall makes these lovely vintage-looking book bags from unwanted old books and fabric. I bought 2 from her last year and got many curious questions and compliments from friends. I also bought 2 reworked dresses from her which she made using old shirts. What a good way to add a new item to your vintage wardrobe and help the environment at the same time.
6. Leather shorts and vests.
7. Lovely detailing on the collar
8. Tons of men's shirts
Despite the snow (yes, we had a bit of random February snow), there was a very good turn out at the fair. In true British style, there was a tea party going on in full swing in one corner. People were nibbling on cupcakes and sipping tea out of china teacups; the proper way.
The only thing I purchased from the fair was this beautiful Halina Paulette Electric camera. I saw it sitting there amongst some accessories and felt as if I had to buy it immediately despite not knowing how the thing works. It wasn't expensive for a vintage (Google tells me this is from the 60s! Awesome!) camera, but I was rather skint after a bout of online shopping in January *shifty eyes*.
I was debating on whether to buy it or not simply because the seller wasn't a camera enthuasist and didn't seem to know much about it either (or whether it was even functioning properly!). I didn't want to pay for a broken thing. The rational side of me told me to put it down, but my hands just wouldn't let go. In the end, my boyfriend paid for it as an early birthday present. Yay!
