Lou lous Vintage Fair

I first saw this event advertised on Social media. And I decided to visit. The atmosphere was brilliant people of all ages from modern attire to vintage. Era’s are from 1920 to 1980.Lou lous visit different cities each weekend either on a Saturday or a Sunday . They go to 40 different cities often visiting 3 or 4 times a year at a set venue. It starts at 11am and finishes at 5pm It costs £2-2.50 to get in.There are many stalls including brick a brac, homeware, fashion in both men’s and women’s, vinyl records, hair accessories and general accessories.Woman’s clothing goes from original vintage and repro brands. And 1 stall holder i have seen, even makes her own designs. Most stall holders are local to your region and travel to other cities in your region as some of them make a living from going to these fairs.Also they often have singers and bands playing music for you. A cake stall where you can choose your refreshment of choice and some lovely delicious cakes. All served in China cups and kitsch plates. Oh and they usually have a hair pop up salon too where you can book to have your hair done in a vintage style . And sometimes with make up too.I’ve been visiting now for 2 and half years and thoroughly enjoy Lou Lous. They also do a Vintage carnival which I will discuss in another post.You can find Lou Lous Vintage Fair on there website but they are also on Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for more information.

Festival of Vintage York

Recently i went to the Festival of Vintage at the York racecource. It is on the last weekend of April celebrating 1930s to 1960s. From 10 til 5pm both days including a separate Saturday night event.

There are displays, classic vehicles dancing and shopping. There is live music on 2 different stages. There is a barbers for the gents and hairdressing for the ladies.

I first went last year and had a great day loved the shopping had my hair styled by Sarah Bloor of pin up curl. This year it was Le Keux vintage salon , having lovely victory rolls done. The sun was out so we could sit out on the champagne lawn and eat our picnic. This year it was wet but luckily as it’s indoor too there were 4 floors of shopping . There are a few bars and 2 restaurants be warned hot food runs out quickly and it’s best to take a picnic. There sandwiches are really nice and they do salads too.
