A little bit about the fair

The original East-end vintage event, Bethnal Green’s Affordable Vintage Fair took shape in 2006, setting-up shop in the iconic York Hall. An answer to expensive vintage littering the city, our Bethnal fair was to be accessible, affordable [and totally stylish!] Throughout our time, some of the UK’s best vintage traders have graced our halls, alongside stylists and celebrities including Daisy Lowe and the Pierces to name but a few.
