Yes gals, my favourite fair is on again in just a few weeks' time!
We will be in our usual spot, over in the corner of the Hall of Fame Room right near the ATM (not that that's a hint or anything, ha ha!).
And I hope that this coming fair will again be adequate cause for a bloggers meet-up. It was so lovely to meet Nelly and Trudy last time, even though I couldn't spare much time for socialising...I hope I get more 'visitors' this coming fair!
But dare I say it, there are so many other places to find vintage.
As is always the case with treasure hunting, it's all a matter of getting out and about and putting the time and effort in.
Here's a little round-up of some other avenues for vintage treasure hunting in the Bris-vague-ass area.
The above is a new little market that I've not yet attended, but might be worth a look, especially if you're interested in handmade and upcycled goodies. You can check their Facebook page here.
Many of you will know about Suitcase Rummage by now, an event so popular it outgrew its initial home in the middle of the CBD. An awesome
Not to be missed, the most very awesome Lori Lee is once again running the Twilight Hot Rod Show, a fabulous night of vintage markets, car show, drinking and music. It was intially scheduled for January but was moved due to bad weather, so don't miss out! See the Facebook page here.
West End Twilight Markets is a small up-and-coming market, held in a large shed just off Boundary St in West End. That makes it sound like a country yee-ha hoe down or something, but I assure you it's not!
Great sounds from live bands, heaps of vintage LPs, cheap 50s dresses, handmade earrings (I'm lookin' at you Ms Vicki Hi-Fallutin!!), topped off by the best vegetarian food ever, what more do you want from a Saturday evening warm-up?!
This is another new-ish wee market I have yet to check out, but I know young Desiree has been there, so I should think that says enough, right?!
And for the uber-keen (or perhaps I should say gluttons for punishment?), chuckouts are on this weekend in Moorooka and Salisbury.
And if that doesn't keep all you vintage gluttons quiet for a little while...then you'll have to come over to my house to check out my stockpile...ha ha ha!!!
