Yesterday morning I took a little break from studying to have a look at what Newcastle Vintage Fair had to offer. The fair was held at The Royal Station Hotel, in two small conference rooms. Having not attended a vintage fair in the North East before I was dubious, however I was pleasantly surprised with what I saw.
The event was absolutely packed with stylish guys and girls, picking up a varied choice of items from the stools. Despite it being held in two small rooms there was plenty of choice of era's, styles, textiles, accessories, clothing and home ware. Being a student it only cost me £2.00 entry, but it would be £2.50 for Non- students.
I saw hundreds of things I wanted to buy, and tried on hand fulls of vintage clothing but my favourite stall was one called kissing cows, which I made two purchases from.
My first little treasure was this incredibly bright, long sleeved dress. I have a recent love for bright shirts and when I saw this I knew I had to have it. It's baggy on me and looks great tucked into skirts or shorts. Best of all it only cost me £8!!!
My Second buy was my favourite. I have wanted some vintage Levi shorts for ages, and have never been able to find some in my size. Kissing Cows had a whole range of Levi shorts and these ones fitted me perfectly and matched the shirt so I had to buy them. The fit as high waisted, with a light blue denim wash. They have been cut and have a deliberate fray at the bottom, however I prefer to give them a turn up. They were also really reasonably priced at £16!
Whilst in Newcastle I decided to have a look around the shops for a little while, to see if anything caught my eye. I recently bought a new MacBook Pro, and have needed a cute case for it. When I received my shiny bundle of joy I promised myself I would look after it better than my old white MacBook, which I had from aged 15. I've been looking for weeks for the perfect case for me, and was sure to be purchasing the cliche Cath Kidston one, however none of their latest patterns in 15" screamed out at me. Being a self confessed stationary geek I popped in to Paperchase yesterday and saw this on the front stand and knew I had to have it. It was just under £20 and has the cutest print. I am seriously in love!
Finally whilst in Fenwicks I saw this SMEG fridge, and I'm just wondering if anyone would be interested in buying it for me?
