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 an amazing day in the heart of Bronte country- travelling by steam train, browsing round vintage shops and walking up very steap hills!

The majority of the day was spent in Haworth arriving at lunchtime and starting the day in a lovely little art cafe where not only did they serve great food, you could also paint up your own piece of pottery.

Second stop of the day, oh la la vintage – the first of the vintage shops – features a painted old bike outside and two floors of vintage goodies, which were great to rummage through. Further on up the hill is The Rose and Co Apothecary – which is like a museum – absolutely amazing to see all the big containers of powdered milk bath, vintage perfumes and big glass jars of sweets.  Theres three more vintage shops, as you follow the bunting  down the hill, Notorious Vintage, Poison Ivy Vintage and The Sue Ryder charity shop which has a dedicated vintage floor upstairs.

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!

I have been drooling over this vintage Alice in Wonderland Watch for what seems like months!! Its has been stored in my watch list ever since I layed eyes on it,and because I had no money it stayed there : (

But on Valentines Day this is what I opened from my lovely boyfriend!!! It’s as beautiful as I hoped it would be!! I love the fact that her arms are what tells the time, and the fact you have to wind it up each day! (But I do forget because I’m not used to it!!!)
