For all lovers of vintage, we hope you have the dates of this weekend, 27th – 29th of September inked into your beautiful leather diaries because the The Vintage and Retro Fair is here!
This year, Australia’s largest collection of vintage will be gathered at a new venue – Australian Technology Park in Everleigh, Sydney. Now that might not sound too compatible – technology? – but it’s the perfect venue and really has lots of charm.
The best dealers in vintage, antique and retro clothing, fashion accessories, textiles, jewellery, homewares, furniture and collectables will together under one roof. It’s the ideal opportunity to vintage shop until you drop and then get up again to shop some more.
If you can bear to drag yourself away from the fabulous clothes and accessories you’ll find there’s so much to do and see. I love the idea of indulging in your own pin-up shoot with the help of a vintage stylist or grabbing the front row at the many pop up fashion parades. And not to be missed - Miss Chrissy from the Lindy Charm School For Girls will hold several talks on how to you can give yourself the complete vintage glamour makeover.
Of course it’s Spring and the Spring Fashion Parades will demonstrate just how you can turn out perfectly in vintage for events such as the races, social picnics – even a day at the beach. Renowned Sydney base stylist is also on the list.
Naturally Bowerbird Vintage will be there and I am excited to share all of the new vintage treasures we have been collecting for the fair.
We’ll be featuring some incredible hats, just in time for the spring racing as well as hand-selected fashion, both dresses and separates. We’ve outdone ourselves with bags and accessories this year so make sure you make your way to Bowerbird first – I’d hate you to miss out on some of these original pieces.
I am really looking forward to meeting lots of new lovers of vintage and our dedicated followers on Facebook. Can’t wait to see you there!
