The Bristol Vintage Fair

The Passenger Shed looked a right treat at the weekend, filled to the rafters with vintage clothing, accessories, homewares and furniture, vintage wedding stalls,a kitsch tea party, rock n roll music and two thousand vintage lovers! Phew! Before we go any further, pop over to the Bristol Facebook page to make sure you don't miss out again!

Now I couldn't help but notice that our Bristol fair was awash with ever so stylish customers. We have people of all ages dressing in all sorts of styles from all sorts of eras. So let's dive straight into a whole load of photos of the very best bit about The Vintage Fair, you lot.

If you didn't arrive in victory rolls, beehives and perfect brows and lips, a fair few of you left with them as The Vintage Hair Lounge were making over girls all day long. The team gained an audience as they worked hard to create an army of vintage sirens using luxury Besame Cosmetics.

Because The Passenger Shed is just so darn big we only went and combined our usual Vintage Fair with our Something Old Vintage Wedding Fair. We had photographers, photo booths, florists, cake makers, vintage bridal gowns, stationary and more. If' you're a northern bride to be, we are going to be in Manchester on the 24th November with 40+ wedding stalls, so keep following Something Old on facebook!

Entertaining us on the day were the rock and rolling Roadhouse Roosters who had people up and dancing around our vintage tea party! Not only did they sound mightily authentic, they sure look the part too. Cool cats indeed! If you want to come and entertain hundreds of people at any of our Vintage Fairs with your rockabilly band, your Andrews Sisters style trio or your jazz piano please e-mail us

To finish off I'm going to share some of my favourite items from Bristol's fair. If I were rich I would have walked away with every single one of these original pieces of 1940s artwork, apparently Paloma Faith herself has been purchasing from these lovely people so if it's good enough for her...

Gold Rush Vintage had a mountain of leather and tapestry bags! You sometimes have to be in the right frame of mind to tackle this amount of stock, but this stall was full of absolute bargains, rummaging pays off!
And boys! Your feet must be looking pretty after this fair, I've never seen so many shiny shiny brogues and loafers on offer.

Well I'm done! We are back at The Passenger Shed on March 10th so put the date in your diaries sweetcheeks. Here's the website you need to keep updated!

Oh yes yes I took many a photo of lots of our stock but I'm saving all of those for a few fashion posts later in the week. I'll give you a clue, "glitzy knits". Oh and if you fancy having a look at what I wore to the fair, head over to my blog and have a nosey!
