Due to my adoration of all things in the past, vintage and retro, I am mega excited about this weekend’s Colchester Secret Vintage Fair. The location has been secret for months but this week they released the top secret location; Colchester Town Hall!
Sadly, I had to miss last year’s vintage fair but nothing will stop me this time!
This year the fair boasts over 50 vintage traders, live music, family friendly burlesque and even a hair salon! After shopping until your hearts content you can sit down and have a nice, vintage afternoon tea in their pop up cafe.
Because of my vintagey wedding next year I’m also looking forward to their vintage inspired wedding dress trader too!
The Secret Vintage Fair is in part raising money for the he Tom Bowdidge Foundation which is a small local charity which supports teenagers and young people diagnosed with cancer.
So, details.. The fair will be from 10-16.30 on Saturday 25th April in Colchester Town Hall. It’s £3 entry and remember to bring cash for lots of vintage goodies and of course your tea and cake!
In the run up to the week itself The Secret Vintagers are wanting you to pop over to instagram and show them your favorite
vintage finds! hashtag them at #secretvintage and tag them @svf_essex
Due to it being a vintage fair, it would be wrong to not dress up! The fair is holding a best dressed competition, just wear your most vintage outfit and sign up with their onsite photographer for 50p!
I’ll be wearing my vintage tea dress and red lippy, hope to see you there!
