Newcastle Does Vintage!
Hello my lovelies! So, with it being a bank holiday weekend and the fact that I'm fortuitously off work of a Monday, what better way to spend it than at a lovely vintage fair? And I was in the best of company too as the wonderful Katie from Katie's World of Beauty was kind enough to come with me for a bit of a browse and a girly gossip! Poring over all the retro treasures and scanning the area for one-of-a-kind finds, my eyes were excited with all there was to see.
Held in the classically quaint Theatre Royal in Newcastle's city centre, the event was abuzz with budding fashionistas and colourful collectors alike, all scouring the scenes to find a hidden vintage gem. With stalls specialising in clothes, accessories, crockery, ornaments and everything else in between - there was always something to tickle your fancy! And with the event boasting a spectacular four floors of vintagey goodness, you were never short of something to do.
Perhaps my favourite part of the vintage fair was meeting the whimsically wonderful Cat, a quirky designer who's doll house inspired pieces are just too cute! You'll notice that I actually haven't any photos of Cat's beautiful stock to show you, because Katie and myself were so busy chatting away to the bubbly designer, completely enthralled by her dainty dolls house pieces! However, if you like the sound of Cat's work, please have a gander at her lovely website Two Penny Lane, I promise you'll be in vintage heaven!
