Brisbane Vintage Fashion & Decor Fair....

What an utterly wonderful time it was attending Brisbane's Vintage Fashion and Decor Fair. There was just so much to look at even old classic card, which always make me smile.



We popped by Kittys Vintage Kitsch stall and finally got to meet Celia and had a look at all their beautiful vintage treasures.

Honestly the whole fair was heaven and there were racks upon racks upon racks of vintage goodness to go through. Something for every vintage loving heart. 












How freaking rock star is this jacket above, the vendor also had a second one teamed with a puffy yellow tulle skirt. The night before we attended, she said she had sold a navy coloured one with zip off tails....now I would of like to of seen that.

Sarah and I enjoyed a nice lunch with Celia which of course involved vintage chatter. After lunch we continued on and I found my spending mojo and started parting with some cash. I met some lovely fair goers throughout the day as well as blogging friends and Celia. It was nice to be in the company of like minded vintage lovers.

I'm rather chuffed to say that I only gave myself a fifty dollar budget for the fair and out of that came the ten dollar entry fee. I bought five items and still came home with five dollars. I did miss seem some final stall as Sarah was getting grizzly.

I love all your vintage buys especially the red and navy maxi on the end. What a great idea to wear the apron as a top, I had never thought of that before...it makes so much sense, I'm afraid I'll have to be a copy-cat.

p.s you're right about Nelly's smile, it's magical.

All lovely finds. The apron is a beauty and I think it would look great worn as a top too. x
