Vintage Fairs Across the UK

Phew! We've been busy little mice this past month, which is why we have not checked in on the old blog! So, I thought it was about time I updated you on our recent adventures, travelling up and down the country selling vintage. And if you live in Birmingham, London or Nottingham, we'll be coming your way before Christmas!

Our first stop was Leicester, at The Auditorium. The venue is a former bingo hall, so it would have been rude not to have a spot of bingo - the prizes were money to spend at the fair, getting your hair done by Lynsey Le Keux and a box of yummy cupcakes! We had a lovely time at the fair and as always, the people there were absolutely lovely and super stylish. Jeny and Amber, Rehaberdashery Vintage and Mad Elizabeth were just a few of the great traders who were there. We look forward to visiting Leicester again soon!

Next up we were down to the big smoke for the second Bloomsbury Vintage Fair at the amazing 's style bowling alley, Bloomsbury Lanes. This fair was buzzing - we could barely move for the crowds. People were stocking up on cosy knits and coats, and starting to think of their Christmas shopping - a few lucky folks will be unwrapping Minimum Mouse jewels on the big day! We'll be back in December for a Bloomsbury Christmas special!

Yesterday we hit the beautiful city of Bristol for a brand new fair. The venue was Circomedia, a gorgeous listed former church which is now used for circus and physical theatre, so there were trapezes and ropes dangling from the ceiling! We were joined by our friends at Curious Cleo, Vintage Vanity, Spankt Vintage and Purple Sparkle Crafts, as well as loads of other stalls full to the brim with vintage goodness. We were also very impressed by Vintage Glamour Days' gorgeous travelling tearoom which was a huge hit with the crowds - I devoured one of their scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam and it was no surprise that they completely sold out of their amazing cakes!

Hope to see you soon at a vintage fair near you!
