I’m really excited to see York Does Vintage returning to town for a Christmas special on the 3rd December! The event, run by Now and the Events was a great day out last time with something for absolutely everyone and this time around there’ll be the added benefit of being able to get some serious Christmas shopping done! Held at St Williams College (situated behind York Minster) with its amazing old beams and rich history, where could be more perfect for a vintage event.

I’m looking forward to seeing the Christmas tearoom, as last time there were some yummy cupcakes and beautiful china cups and saucers, bring on the mince pies! I also don’t want to miss out on the hair and beauty girls that will be there too, hopefully I can get some tips for Christmas and New Years Parties!!

There is a lot more going on including vintage stalls, bunting workshops and even live singers and all of this will cost just £1 (or 50p if you are a student)! What makes the whole day even better is that 15% of all money taken on the door goes to help the Alzheimer’s Society. Vintage clothes, christmas cupcakes and helping charity? Count me in!

Spent the weekend at Judy’s Affordable Vintage fair, at the Corn Exchange in Leeds. Complete with beautiful surroundings, lovely vintageness and a sparkly Christmas tree it was enough to put you in a festive mood to buy lots of christmas presents! I purchased lots of lovely items including a lovely white lacey top, a blue patterned kaftan and some hand made badges that I loved – my favourite were all the bird patterned ones – they are pictured above and you can find lots of lovely vintage and hand made Items here from this stall!!

I spent a lovely morning at The Rose and Brown vintage fair in Saltaire today, which is easily my favourite vintage fair  it’s set in a beautiful venue and is always packed with some great stalls, it even has it’s own vintage refreshments area.

I love looking through all the wide variety of stalls – you never know what you might find, one of my favourite stalls today was Claire’s Vintique, she had some beautifully displayed teacups (pictured above) and she made some lovely jewellery pieces, including some little bird pendants and cute little earings.  Another stall I liked was the Goldings Old Things stall, which was beautifully laid out, and had some lovely plates displayed.
My mum purchased some really unusual handmade jewellery from a stall named Steamstress, really unique pieces which were made from everything you could imagine old parts of pocket watches, poker pieces and lots of different charms. My purchases of the day included some cherry patterned button earings and a floral print blazer.

We can’t visit Saltaire without going to Salts Mill, so stopped off to see the new David Hockney exhibition and have a hot chocolate in the Opera Cafe! The day was finished by having a walk round the food market, before the rain sent us home!!

I Spent a lovely morning in Saltaire today – as The Rose and Brown Vintage Fair was taking place at the beautiful Victoria hall.  It’s easily one of the best Vintage fairs I like to visit, there’s two rooms jam packed with vintage clothes, accessories and homeware, there’s also a lovely refreshment area.

I find all the stalls are so reasonbly priced and I got some lovely items – my favourite has to be a white and blue scarf with flocked poodle pattern- ( my photos don’t do it justice!), I also picked up another scarf, with a purple and pink pattern on,  a crochet lace clutch bag, which will be perfect for the summer and a patterned white top.

My mum picked up a little bird brooch and a lovely scarf from the Purple rabbit vintage stall, they had some lovely dresses too.

I could have gone mad buying lots of pretty items but sadly ran out of money!! So I finished the morning with a look round Salts Mill – browsing the bookshop and art materials, before I got the train home!

If you are in the area you should check out the Rose and Brown Vintage shop, and the blog too!
