Cheaper than chips, The Vinage Kilo Sale Returns!

 

Greetings Vintage Fans!

So, as you probably know, that most momentous of events, The Vintage Kilo Sale, calls at London this Saturday, bringing 5 TONNES of vintage stock at a meager £15 per kilo. So affordable that it makes ‘Bargain Hunt’ look like Harrods, we wanted to show off some of our favourite bits…

Appetites whet? We thought so! For all the details of Saturday’s Bethnal Green event, click here.

See you soon vintage fans!

Aloha, Aloha!

 

Greetings Vintage Fans,

In this somewhat tropical weather, we admit that it’s pretty easy to forget that we’re in England. With that in mind (and wanting to put a midweek grin on your face!) we couldn’t help but share this snap from our last Spitalfields fair – can you guess which place this trader seems to think he’s in?

Aloha, aloha! Enjoy the weather vintage fans!

Retro Regards,

Game, Set, Spitalfields!

Greetings vintage fans,

After a such a rapturous, sun-soaked, victory-filled few days, pardon us if we let out a walloping ‘PHWOAR, WHAT A WEEKEND!!’ 30 degree heat, Murray, ice-cream – it could be the e-numbers and endorphins talking but what a corker the past few days have been!

Adding to this head-spinning euphoria is of course the fact that we set a course for East London on Saturday, bringing our legendary ‘Judy’s at Old Spitalfields’ event back to the capital. Ever on the hunt for retro treasures, here’s how we got on…

Tropical sideboards, floaty dresses, cupcakes filled with Pimm’s (yes, you heard us, PIMM’S! What kind of delicious sorcery is this?!) – a retro recipe for the perfect London day in the sun.

In addition to plentiful shopping bags (and empty purses) came an abundance of great London street style. Aided by our friends from ‘Back of the Wardrobe,’ check out these stunners below…

A testament to the fact that there’s an alternative look to ‘sweaty mess’ on a boiling London day (not that that’s how we looked, dear reader. ‘Glowing’ is how we’re marketing it!) we certainly left inspired!

And so, another super Spitalfields down, we’re headed to bed to dream of tennis, rays and THAT cupcake.

Retro regards,

Sound the trumpets and bang the drums – London’s BIGGEST vintage fair is back!

Yes folks, calling at the beautiful (and covered – bloody rain!) Old Spitalfields Market on Sat July 6th, our vintage troupe returns! Fashion, furniture, homewares, accessories, menswear, haberdashery and perchance a celeb or two (*cough cough Pixie Lott, Florence, VV Brown cough cough*) we can’t wait!

For all the details click here but until then…


Oh my (Dog) Days! Florence Welch & The Vintage Furniture Flea

Greetings vintage fans,

Celebrity klaxon alert! Returning to Bethnal Green’s York Hall last Sunday, we spotted a famous face amongst the crowds- siren Florence Welch! Perusing the stalls for furniture and wares, we thought that she looked AWE-SOME! (scroll down to see!)

In addition to her hat, Fair Manager Scarlett’s dress and more cakes than our bellies could take, we also fell for the picnic set pictured below – perfect for an English meadow or park in the fleeting summer sun!

All in all, we had a ball and can’t wait to come back! For the latest on our movements, be sure to peruse here and until then, adieu – we’ll be coming to you soon!

Retro Regards,

Raise the Roof – London’s BIGGEST Vintage Fair returns!

Raise the roof vintage fans, for in a matter of days, London’s BIGGEST vintage fair is back in town!

Yes, we too are looking at our watches AGHAST! Almost a full calendar month since our last jaunt to Old Spitalfields, we’re back once more, bringing the best in vintage and retro (just in time for payday – SCORE!)

Always fans of memory lane (figuratively of course – although if anyone does know an actual PLACE called ‘Memory Lane’ then that would be kind of cool!) we’ve nabbed some snaps from blogger ‘Becky Bedbug‘ to get you in the mood…

Titilated? YES WE ARE! For anyone in the neighbourhood, pop into The Old Spitalfields Market (near Liverpool St) and give us a wave from 11am!

Retro Regards,

Forgive us readers, for we have sinned…

 

Forgive us blog readers, for we have sinned; caught up in the madness and maelstrom of everyday life (and watching WAY too much ‘Game of Thrones’), we’ve ignored this little blog of late, putting it on a back burner so far away that said back burner is simply a blip in the distance. Well, ‘NO MORE’ we cry! But where to begin?? With life moving a mile a minute at the moment, we figured let’s play on that classic TV show trait and have a quick catch-up. Cue opening credits (bonus points if you comment below with a suggested tune that we should have as our ‘Judy’s Vintage Fair’ theme song…) and a booming voice as we give you ‘previously at Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair…’

We saw taxidermy at Chester…

…as well as some rather yummy cakes.

Coasters caught our eyes…

…and the Vintage Furniture Flea came to town.

We brought retro travel to Old Spitalfields…

…and got literary in Leeds!

We fell into red dress heaven at the Corn Exchange…

…and found some excellent specs to match!

And end scene! A lovely little visual treat, we hope that’s caught you up (and expect more from us this week!)

Retro Regards (and sorry once more!)

Judy’s at Old Spitalfields: The Rock n Roller Special

Greetings vintage fans!

The hair, the swagger, the moves (like Jagger) – there’s nothing we love more than a good rock and roller! Ahead of tomorrow’s very special Judy’s at Old Spitalfields (featuring a rockabilly theme with live music and booze from the folks at Sailor Jerry’s) we’ve decided to get in the mood by perusing our rock and roll idols from the 50s and 60s. Quoffed hair, tailoring (and bags full of talent) have a peruse below…

Judy’s at Old Spitalfields – Retro goes YELLOW!

Greetings Vintage Fans!

Always a sucker for a theme, last Saturday we popped on our shades and said hello to Spring by turning our monthly Judy’s at Old Spitalfields event our favourite shade – YELLOW! Inviting bloggers ‘Fancyfull‘ to come act as our retro musketeers [or should that be 'mustardeers?' No? Ok then!] here’s how they got on…

“Nicci and I were thrilled to be invited down to Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair to be their official Yellow Hunters! We only had eyes for the bright stuff and ferreted out all the best yellow wares the wonderful vendors had brought with them. We both really enjoy Judy’s fairs, they live up to their affordable name and we always hunt out some beautiful items to add to our burgeoning collection of second hand and vintage goods!”

 

“The gorgeous tea cup, Playmobil figurine and the amazing Sylvanian Families were from the wonderful Magpie’s Attic. I (Lucy) had such an obsession with Sylvaninan Families when I was younger and Nicci has promised to take me to the Sylvanian Families shop in Finsbury Park very soon.”

“This wonderful vintage filing cabinet would even manage to brighten up the always dull job of filing. Find it at Plan for Mondays where Lucy got an amazing suitcase from at the last Judy’s fair and we would strongly recommend hunting this stall out at all Judy’s fairs.”

“Seeing these vintage Girl Guide pins from Vintage Promise has made me (Lucy) dig out my old sash and start wearing those old pins and badges with pride!”

“These were a very, very small section of the amazing egg cups on offer at The Eggcuppery. I think they may become a new favourite collectors item here at Fancy Full.”

 

Dabber Decades had the wonderful knnited dress, great 60s blouse and these super summery Mary Quant sunglasses. They had gone all out on the yellow front!”

“With April looming on the horizon, april showers can’t be far behind. This vintage yellow raincoat from Old Pony Vintage would cheer anyone up on a drizzly day.”

“What more could you want from a scarf? yellow + horses equals a dream scarf. Find this beauty from Tapestry Boutique. Nicci picked up a beautiful shirt from here as well.”

Love Inc Ltd had one of the best yellow themed displays on their stalls. We seriously loved all their items and we could have quite happily bought everything!”

“These beautiful vintage dresses were from the lovely Tallula Vintage. The one with the hello yellow label was my absolute favourite.”

“We wanted all the globes that Before Brasilia had to offer, they were all so vibrant and would have made the perfect addition to any living room or bedroom. (Lucy went on to purchase the large red circular suitcase to add to the growing suitcase collection.)”

“They also had this amazing Silver Jubilee Colman’s mustard set which whilst looking lovely I doubt you’d want to sample the mustard inside!”

“Check back at Fancy Full in the next few days and we’ll be sharing all our street style pics that we snapped of all the well turned out vintage shoppers.

Lucy and Nicci xx”

And there we have it folks – what did you think of our yellow retro fiesta? Feel free to comment below or leave us your thoughts on our official fanpage.
