Yesterday was spent at our regular vintage fashion fair at Cecil Sharp House in Primrose Hill, Camden. I run the stall just as a hobby now as it gives us a day out to meet old and new friends, spy potential vintage purchases and generally have some quality together with hubby.
My outfit was dominated by the weather yet again-Gap always skinny blue jeans, Marks & Spencer black leather ankle boots, Marks & Spencer black faux fur bolero-which was worn originally over my black leather biker jacket and Marks & Spencer olive snakeskin print shirt.
This is a picture of part of my stall, I sell a selection of vintage clothes, bags, hats and scarves. It was fairly quiet yesterday as there were two or three other vintage fairs in London as well, plus it didn't stop raining on and off. We still had a nice day though and one of my vintage faux fur coats will be living in Arizona now-I sold it to a lady who was on vacation with her daughter and has recently bought a vintage camper van to go touring once her daughter goes to college.
Another lovely American lady bought an 80s black dress which she loved and a 60s navy handbag was one of the first sales of the day too.
I do so enjoy chatting with customers, it's great to hear of the lives they lead and where they come from, whether its an international student, someone who lives locally or friends having a day out. For them to choose something that they really love is an added bonus too, knowing that an item I've looked after will now get a new lease of life in a new home!
Please let me know if you want a complimentary ticket for the fair-the monthly dates are printed on them for the rest of 2013, so you can use it for any of the future dates. For more information on the fair visit the website here to either visit or hold a stall yourself:
I generally try and wear vintage when I go to the fair but with winterly weather I am a real lazy layering dresser-when Summer hits then I'll be more adventurous!
I am linking this post to the lovely Patti at NotDeadYetStyle for her Visible Monday post. I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and a great week to come. Here's hoping Spring will come as soon as possible!
