A grand day out in Brighton

While the world was awash with Royal Wedding excitement, we had a different event on our minds - The Vintage Fair's visit to beautiful Brighton. We love any excuse to pay a visit to this jewel of the south coast, so we packed up our finest summery vintage pieces and hit the road. The fair took place at Brighton University's Sallis Benney Theatre on Grand Parade, just a hop, skip and a jump from the Lanes.

And the prize for the best dressed shopper of the day goes to the gent in the boater! Beautiful hats by Snaffle Vintage

It was a gloriously sunny day, but thankfully that did not divert these savvy shoppers from their hunt for gorgeous clothes at bargain basement prices! We were joined by our friends at The Magical Tree, Curious Cleo, Yellow Jelly, Second Hand Rose, Snaffle Vintage and Jeny and Amber among others, and as always I was impressed by the quality of clothes on offer, and the great prices too. If you are still a vintage fair virgin, you need to get along to one near you very soon, you're missing out!

After the fair we managed to squeeze in a walk down to the seafront where we treated ourselves to fish and chips, and had a lovely walk on the Palace Pier as the sun started to go down. Bliss!

Our next stop on the vintage trail is Bristol in two weeks' time, check it out here.
