Well, out on the town last night we noticed a few posters advertising a vintage fair at Sutton Coldfield town hall today. As Jon was busy tinkering with cars it was a toss-up between being on tea-making duties or donning some vintage finery and tagging along with Liz and Adrian and guess which option won?
The admission price was £1 and there was a huge range of vintage and vintage-inspired goodies to suit all budgets.
I couldn't resist posing by this awesome red Mustang before I went in.
|1980's stuff in abundance.|
As our boiler's decided to pack up, I couldn't really justify spending £65 on a fabulous brocade opera coat with a marabou trim, yet another maxi or some original suede platform shoes, more's the pity.
There was live music, swing dancing demonstrations and vintage makeovers and even a vintage bridal boudoir.
I spotted the lovely Laura selling her gorgeous handmade jewellery.
|Vintage catsuit (£3.33) worn with velvet platforms (£9, Office) and vintage chain belt (the fabulous Helga)|
|John Marks velvet maxi waistcoat (Vintage Village @ Clothes Show, 2008), emerald felt hat (£4, Birmingham Settlement), vintage locket and chain (the divine Kitty)|
Sending lots of love to my sisters and brothers in the States today.
Hope your weekend's been a good one.
