Hi guys! It’s been a few days – apologies! I’ve been busy writing a new piece for The Glass Pineapple – all will be revealed soon!
If you follow me on twitter (and if you don’t, you can follow me here) then you may have seen a few pictures from the Vintage Market I attended on Saturday. As you may have gathered, I really enjoy a bit of vintage in my life and markets/fairs are a fantastic source of inspiration- so I urge you all to check if there’s either of the above coming to your town. You won’t regret it.
I’ve added a selection of my favourite images from the day, most of which are floating around my Instagram. I started off by visiting the Vintage Market at the Royal Arcade in Boscombe. There were some great vintage pieces of clothing, quirky decorations and jewellery and general bric-a-brac. There was one stall which sold fantastic dolls, almost Tim Burton-esque in looks but a little more cutesy – I’m glad I snapped a picture below! I’d have bought one if they weren’t that little bit out of my price range. I also visited a vinyl record store, which had some pretty great music (I spotted a couple of Beatles records for under £5 each – bargain!) and meandered down the high street (it’s one of those places that’s a total dive with the odd hidden gem). I followed that with a quick mosey to Boscombe beach.
I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon and loved that the sun that was finally shining! It felt like a great excuse to crack out my retro Dahlia playsuit – I adore the colour and 1940s vibe. Before leaving this morning I grabbed a signature ribbon and tied a large black bow (I’m gonna let you into a secret – it was to hide my gross hair). I brought my fur coat for when it got chilly but I was pretty comfortable without it!
Like I said – do check if there are any vintage events coming to your home towns! They aren’t something to miss. Hope you all had fantastic weekends!
