We’ll be returning to London this Autumn with a special new venture in hand; bringing the UK’s first vintage event specifically tailored for kids, they give you The Junior Vintage & Craft Fair.
Shopped by the likes of Florence Welch, Chloe Sevigny and even Henry Holland, the formula for Judy’s is a simple one; gather incredible vintage traders from all over the UK, check them for affordable, eclectic one-off stock and gather them together, if just for a day. Showcasing fashion fairs in 30 cities, furniture events in London [The Vintage Furniture Flea] and known as the go-to gals for shifts to whisks to vintage vinyl, a foray into kidswear was a logical step for Britain’s biggest vintage fair; “Children are common at many vintage events,” states fair-founder Judy, “ yet they often remain uncatered for. My idea was to put an end to that, offering parents, families and whippersnappers alike an antidote to the norm.” From bedroom to playroom, classroom to clothes, the fair promises exactly that; prams to toys, comics to cots, parkas to school bags to crafts and blankets, all without breaking the bank.
Transforming York Hall, Junior’s Vintage & Craft Fair is as much about family fun as it is hunting for goodies; putting a spin on their menu, the event will feature a vintage kids tea
party with healthy snacks and games to boot. A magician is set to entertain, with face-painters and balloon artists on stage. For all those wanting some r n r, Junior’s beauty teams will be on hand, with special prices for mums and daughters wanting to get coiffed in the vintage salon. With a buggy park, changing station and flexible rules on entry all integral to the event, the fair looks set to offer pain-free retail therapy without leaving the kids at home.
