There’s a whole industry built around the current passion for anything vintage. It seems that even young people like to wear clothes from their grandparents era and even earlier. I went to a vintage fair a couple of years ago with a friend who is very keen. personally I like to look but wouldn’t want to own or wear anything from the past. i did see some interesting things though, this was one of my favourites.
Are you a vintage fan? If yo have photos you can join this weeks photo challenge at The Daily Post.
At the weekend a very old friend invited me to join her on a visit to a vintage fair. When she suggested it I was delighted to be spending the day with her but less impressed with the idea of ‘vintage’, I didn’t think it was my scene.
When we go there it was far bigger than I imagined, probably more than a hundred stalls with something for everyone, even a sceptic like me.
Here are some of the things we saw.
A vintage fashion show!
Vintage and retro transport.
And nostalgic pretties.
All in all it was a great day with loads to see, things I’d forgotten existed from my childhood and goodness, a lot of people love this stuff. They regularly dress up to step back in time. Perhaps some of you indulge in vintage, please share if you do?
My best bit? finding some maps from 1960 and only one pound each!
