As mentioned in my last post I went to the Engine Shed in Lincoln today for the Vintage Fair which was organised by Judy's Affordable Vintage Fairs. We had a very nice time, did far too much shopping, and drank tea. I must admit I was a little sceptical as to how much I would find as 40's and 50's vintage can be hard to come by. I was, however, pleasantly surprised and did plenty of shopping!
I had been feeling like dressing 1940s and couldn't wait to dress up in my new suit which I bought last weekend; I got a few compliments which were very lovely. You can see on my lapel is one of my purchases from today which is a very sweet brooch. While at the fair I also bought a lovely dress which is hand made but I fancy the cut is very 1940s. It's quite silky so I will have to wait for the summer before I can wear it; it's far too chilly out there! My final purchase was a 1930s style peasant blouse for only £8. I have been looking for a peasant blouse for ages but couldn't find one I liked so I am extremely pleased with this little bargain!
After we had been around the fair and seen all there was to see we headed into town to have a look around some of the vintage shops. I found a very nice 1950s vanity set which appears unused in Mr Bojangles. I can't wait to go away somewhere so I can fill it up with all of my lotions and potions. Unfortunately we didn't make it to see Relentless play as I got the date wrong and they played yesterday. I was so disappointed but playing with all of my new purchases made it easier to cope with.
