After a rubbish start to the week that included a nasty stomach bug and possible food poisoning, I’m now on the mend and looking forward to the weekend, thanks to the return of The Vintage Fair at Bristol’s Circomedia.
The Vintage Fair first graced Bristol with its presence back in January and now returns this weekend, bringing over 40 stalls, a vintage tea party and a vintage inspired pop-up hair salon to Portland Square.
If January’s event is anything to go by, Circomedia will be buzzing with Bristol fashionistas this Saturday so if you want the pick of the stalls my advice is to arrive early. Polka dot playsuits and cream pleated dresses were the order of the day last time but this time I’ll be on the hunt for chunky knit jumpers, leather satchels and perhaps a wool coat to stave off the increasingly chilly weather.
The event is made up of several different stalls and businesses so prices vary, but vintage accessories can be picked up for as little as £5, divine cupcakes are around £2 (look out for the red velvet ones, nom!) and retro make-up and hairstyles can be yours for as little as £8 but slots are booking up fast. For more info on the pop-up salon check out The Vintage Fair Facebook page.
If you can’t make it this weekend fear not – The Vintage Fair visits cities across the country throughout the year, including Birmingham, Cardiff and Leeds.
The Vintage Fair at Circomedia, Portland Square, Saturday 22nd October, 12-5pm. £2 entry or £1 for students and OAPs. For more info see The Bristol Vintage Fair Facebook page.
