The fair was quite a lot bigger than other fairs I've been to. It was spread through both bars of the student union and had a range of goods on sale: there were lots of lovely vintage clothes stands, handmade, quirky and vintage jewellery stalls, and a few with some lovely and quite kitschy homewear bits and bobs too.
I managed (somehow, I don't know how) to resist the urge to buy one of the gorgeous looking cupcakes! I have so many cookies left over from the charity cake sale I did yesterday, I thought it'd be rude to buy more sweet treats when I have so many at home! They did look amazing though. The last vintage fair in Leeds I went to, the Marvellous Tea Dance Co catered for it and I succumbed to the cake and had a lovely slice of strawberry jam sponge with edible glitter on top!
There were some really brilliant stalls at the vintage fair, I think this one might have possibly been my favourite. There were so many lovely items of jewellery, I really could have spent an absolute fortune! The stall belonged to Razor Blade Mermaid Jewellery a lovely, fellow polka dots appreciater, who I had a little chat with. I love how friendly and fun these events are, and full of vintage and handmade delights!
If my meagre student loan could have allowed, I would definitely have cleared out this stall, everything was so wonderful!
My lovely earrings from Razor Blade Mermaid Jewellery. I love the way that they were presented on miniature playing cards: such a nice little touch.I tried on this beautiful dress from the Dorothy's Wardrobe stall. I love the light blue floral print and the laced collar, but alas, the dress cut me in at the waist too low and wasn't flattering for my shape. It didn't stop me falling in love with it though! I was very sad to put it back on the rail after trying it on.
I also bought myself these little cameo earrings from the Lottie Loves stall. I had some very similar ones that I bought from a local vintage shop, Little Treasures, a while back, but I trod on them and broke them beyond repair, silly me! So these little gems are a welcome replacement.
I was very tempted by the little gold clock earrings too, but didn't have enough pennies on me to buy both :(
I bought this lovely polka dot dress from the Pickle Pea stand. It's a lovely shape and I can't wait for an occasion to wear it (as if I need an excuse to wear something pretty and polka dotty!). Pickle Pea are also part of an upcoming Indie Craft and Vintage Market in York on the 9th April which should prove to be a great event. Sadly I'll be down in London and will miss it. But if you're in the area it should be worth a visit!
