Secondly, and mostly what this post is about, we also visited The Old Spitalfields market last saturday for the first Judy's Affordable Vintage fair. Spitalfields were kind enough to give me £60 of vouchers to spend too!
John and I split the vouchers between us. Here's what we managed to pick up:
We also picked up two Cravats that were two for a fiver, one in a baby blue and another in an off white. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to get a photo of them before he took them home..
Also picked up was a beautiful tan suede waistcoat for £20. Its vintage Burton's, and previously discovered Burton used to make really crisp men's clothes. Maybe not the case anymore..
Enjoying a coffee break
I managed to pick up two things after debating lots and lots with fur coats and scarves.
This was a chance buy after browsing a stall and it was hidden in the corner; a leather vintage purse. After a bit of haggling managed to pick it up for a fiver, and its an absolute bargain for that price. The metal needs a bit of polishing but apart from that its in pretty good condition.
I just love this leather bag that I came across, especially the metal bar opening on it, its so unique. This was sold by Velvet Eccentric "For the woman who wants to express her flamboyant side" (velvet-eccentric.co.uk) and it cost £20.
So all in all it was a good turnout, and I was impressed with the selection of men's and women's clothing. If you get the chance to attend this fair, do so; it's worth it! Check their website to find one that runs near you www.vintagefair.co.uk
Oh, and for John's birthday last friday I made a Moustache Cake.
