Affordable Vintage...

I adore vintage markets, so when my mum told me about Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair, I was already there in my mind rummaging through the rails.

Saturday 2nd February we went along to Spitalfields Market in London for a mother daughter vintage day out.
It was slightly different to other fairs I have been to before, however there were lots of different stalls selling vintage items, as well as vintage inspired products. There were also food stalls offering you tasters of their produce, not great for the diet, I did discover Ubiquitea a Chinese tea specialist. I purchased some jasmine tea leaves which can be infused over and over again. So pretty and delish!

Vintage in Print was the best stall in my opinion. Friendly and helpful was the lady running it and the actual prints were absolutely amazing. I could have bought all of them, luckily i can continue looking at home as they are online. vintageinprint They have vintage adverts from the likes of Chanel and Dior cosmetics, also Vintage Vogue covers which are all mounted. My favourite were the photographic prints, they each had information about the photographer, garment and year. Reasonable prices too, £18 for some of the prints, which I personally feel is steal for such beautiful pieces.

Although I didn't buy any clothing, as I have put myself on a spending ban, only buying when I need something (which is always) it was great to chat to some of the dealers and also i was informed about other vintage fairs. I also got some fabulous ideas for some vintage inspired projects I can create at home :)

So if you're interested in anything vintage or just fancy a wander, I would recommend going to the next market. Spitalfields is the home of many interesting markets oldspitalfieldsmarket will give you all the info you need.
The next Judy's vintage fair in London is on the 23rd February however it's a little different as its a kilo sale. £15 per kilo of clothing, super cheap and exciting rooting around for treasures.
