Review: Clerkenwell vintage fair

I couple of weeks ago I popped along to the Clerkenwell Vintage Fair & OMGosh it was an Aladdin’s cave of beautiful treasures.
Held at Finsbury Park Town Hall, a stunning location with beautiful interiors, the numerous stalls are crammed full of vintage goodness. From Victorian necklaces made of real hair to 1950s sundresses, there is so much to take in across the three rooms of tightly packed tables & clothes rails that you will most likely find yourself wandering the stalls several times just to make sure you’ve seen everything everyone has to offer.
Below are a few snaps from the day:

I really enjoyed visiting this Vintage Fair. Not only was the atmosphere fab but the buyers were also incredibly friendly & helpful. Definitely a better experience than the Primrose Vintage & Textiles fair I visited a few months ago!
As for prices, expect prices for a 1950s dress to be around the £65+ mark with skirts priced around £40. Not cheap but the quality of the pieces on offer was great so root around & prices are open to negotiation too ;)
