A visit for vintage

Lou Lou

So just a few days after visiting the weekly market I got to visit a travelling vintage fair. Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair took up residence in Oxford town hall for one day only! There were loads of great stalls.

There was also a tea party going on in another room

The complete tea gang, all dressed in their own style of vintage, the tea shop was called Mabel’s which pleased witchcat immensely.

Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on how you look at it) I had set myself a budget. I said a big yes to this mock cameo ring (I fell in love with another cameo of a very pretty lady with a rose in her hair but buying her would have blown the budget and then some, so she had to stay where she was).

I tried on a fair few hats, most didn’t fit but then I spied this blue number:

It fit but I wasn’t sure it would go with anything, I went to think about it and when I came back another lady was trying it on, my heart sank as I realised I did really like it and should have bought it earlier. Fortunately she too decided to think about it so I swooped and it is now mine. I think/hope it suits no?

I’m hoping to wear it to Newbury races at some point as neither Jam or I have ever been & I would love to get dressed up and go gaze at some beautiful horses. My final purchase also stays with the equine theme:

A riding related scarf, I didn’t notice till I got it home it actually relates specifically to the races at Newmarket.

I just love all the horsey details. And so that’s it (and probably it for fairs for a few months, none for ages then they all come at once). Lou Lou’s vintage fairs are still travelling and you can find out if they are visiting a venue near you by checking out their facebook page.
