Despite the filthy weather yesterday New Man and I ventured out to the rather grandly (and not very appropriately, I thought) Festival of Vintage at Epsom.
It was buzzing when we arrived just an hour after doors had opened and jivers were in full swing to The Stylettes.
There were stalls a plenty crammed with vintage clothes, jewellery, furniture, ephemera - you name it, it was there. I had my eye out for some red earrings but alas they eluded me. Being the thrifty person I am, (for thrifty read tightarse) I thought the price tags were rather inflated, so used am I to chazza and JS prices.
The queues for teas and refreshments were a mile long but it didn't bother us as we'd brought our own lunch along and ate it whilst we people watched.
Isn't she gorgeous, but if I was into this look it would take me all day to get out of the house. How long would those victory rolls take ?
Other activities taking place were vintage make-overs, Make Do and Mend workshops and vintage fashion parades. This trio named The Swinging Sweethearts looked and sounded fantastic.
Whilst strolling around I bumped into LandGirl 1980 and said hello, but stupidly forgot to get a photo. As usual she looked fabulous and received many admiring glances. This was my token vintage look yesterday!
I couldn't leave without making a purchase and bought this scarf and 60's brooch. I struck a deal at £10 for the two which is pricey enough but the brooch just caught my eye, and has come up a treat after the application of Brasso.
On our way out we had a quick shufty at the vintage cars, the rain was coming down in stair rods so we didn't hang around.....
.......but on the back seat of one of the motors we saw the most vingage thing of the day!
What did you get up to at the weekend ?
Blogger has been an absolute mare today, anyone else having trouble ?
