Today has been a productive yet relaxing day, this morning myself and hubby went along to a local vintage event hosted by Nostalgia Vintage Fairs at The Cedars Inn Barnstaple. This event is run once a month and is full of lovely vintage and retro goodies. There was a lot of home-ware items and lovely tea sets too which always catch my eye. I was hoping for a few more clothing pieces but the selection was beautiful but a little over my budget. The green coat in the picture was one of my favourite pieces and was such amazing quality and workmanship, the colour and style really stood out too.
The prices for vintage has gone up considerably since I started buying it about 5 years ago, I suppose back then it wasn’t as trendy to shop in charity shops and at car boots. It’s a shame as that holds me back in making vintage purchases as something has to be super special and a real investment piece to add to my wardrobe. Check out some of the lovely items at todays vintage fair, would be great to know what everybody thinks of the vintage fashion market at the minute, are you experiencing higher prices because it has gained popularity?
This week I’m also going to be launching a special giveaway for my blog reaching 1k followers which features brands such as Able Clothing, LISU Handmade Jewellery, Cupcake Couture, Olivia’s Vintage and many more. Keep your eyes peeled, thanks for all the support for the blog and to my lovely readers and followers!
