Vintage Fair @ Custard Factory

We went to the vintage fair. It was way better than last time.


If you happened to have attended the Vintage Kilo Fair at the beginning of term you might have been mildly disappointed. However, this time LouLou’s Vintage Fair has been doing the rounds, deemed and voted the winner of ‘Best Vintage Fair in the UK’  and they did not disappoint. Although it was pricey there were some fabulous pieces on offer.

With over 40 vintage stalls for men and women alongside some handmade and homeware stalls too. Ranging from the 1940’s-1990’s, there was a wide range on offer.

Entry was 1 pound, but in all fairness it was worth it even for a quick browse.

VINTAGE SALON: if you fancied channeling that true vintage look, there were people on guard to spray and pin and make you into that 1920’s pin-up star you were born to be…

With piles upon piles of faux and real fur you’ll not be worrying about those winter shivers anymore, leopard coats galore!

There were many fun colors and textures to choose from…

These two dashing gents were sporting their own zany attire.

When asked about how he managed to attain such a vibrant orange/blue combo to his lid he replied simply: lots and lots of bleach.

Either way we think it looks grand, especially with his tortoiseshell spectacles and colorful garms.

Unfortunately though the prices were steep we were eventually drawn into the great variety of stock.
