OOOOOOOH! Lots of lovely vintage things

I will start out by saying never EVER wear satin shoes in the rain, a) you wreck your shoes and b) your feet get incredibly incredibly wet. Anyway, so i thought i would venture my way to a corner of Yorkshire i have yet to experience, Huddersfield as i heard there was a vintage fair there. GOOD TIMES!
It was a really rather excellent one actually. I was a bit unsure about it as it said it was a home and fashion fair, but it was basically fashion which is always good. I managed to resist going too overboard with my spending for once and resisted the temptation to buy yet more 50’s fashion magazines (they had tons of copies of petit echo de la mode, which i accidentally seem to be collecting). I was quite amused realy as when i walked in the woman taking the entry money went “i’ve met you before, you’ve bought some purses off me” which was completely spot on! I’m finding more and more when i go to the vintage fair in Yorkshire that the stall holders seem to recognise me, i think its because of a) the sheer volume i talk and b) the fact that i go to pretty much every vintage fair i can.
The prices at discover vintage were really reasonable too which is probably why i ended up coming away with two bits rather than one!


Purchase numero uno: FAB FAB FAB i was so proud of my bartering skills on this one, managed to get the dealer down to Β£25, it is what i think is a cobra skin bag from the 20’s. It has a great little ball clasp to it, proper deco style and the skin has this really elegant slightly purple tone. I love the way with the true 20’s bags that they have al the little sections, like a purse actually attached inside the bag, why can’t stores still make bags properly now!
Purchase numero dos:Pair of eighties moda in pelle flat shoes with a fab Greek looking motif
So, if anyone is in Leeds on the 7th November head up to the next discover vintage fair, i think it is in Headingley( short bus journey out of Leeds) take a visit, you may just find a bargain!
