What can you expect from Lou Lou’s vintage fair?
Any vintage lover worth their faux fur coat will be aware of Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair. But if you have never visited before, what can you expect to find? Well my blue jean babies, you can find lots and lots of stalls stocked with vintage goodies including jewellery, kitch homeware and accessories. You can even find a hairdresser, styling up victory rolls on anyone who is game. Predominantly, though you will find retro clothing- and most of it is very, very good.
Stall holders from across the land attend the events that are held on a regular basis in town halls and event spaces-in fact Lou Lou’s visits more than 40 cities across the UK! Prices are very reasonable with items ranging around the £10-20 mark and many stalls have a sale rail too, so you can shop ’til you drop even if your purse is light.
Expect quality clothing not cheap rubbish. 70’s gowns in whimsical prints, 60’s mini dresses, winter coats and real leather bags are waiting to be snapped up. Ideal if you want to get your hands on a piece of genuine vintage, and a real bargain and not just a bit of second hand clothing.
Events like these are always better attended with a group of your besties, not least because there’s refreshments served including cake and no vintage fair would be complete without tea in china cups. Strike it lucky and your location could even have a bar!
On occasion, as you rummage through the rails your browsing may accompanied by a rockin’, swing band so you can sing along as you spend!
Top tip for Vintage Lovers!
If you go near the end of the day you may be able to haggle an awesome deal as a few stallholders are able to knock something off the price depending on how their day has gone.
