Yellow vintage fair - August and sunshine

Hello there,

Last March I braved the wind and rain and visited the Yellow Vintage Fair held at The Ageas Bowl, home of Hampshire Cricket. This time round, the weather was an awful lot kinder - thank goodness!

We also had more time to enjoy the live music, vintage cars and have a good old nose around all the stalls. I could easily have spent a small fortune on all the vintage jewellery stalls. I'm a real magpie with anything sparkly and colourful.

It was lovely to have a chat with some of the sellers, many I remembered from March. One stall in particular - Curlie's Vintage caught my eye (and my purse). I could easily have bought everything they had for sale


So many vintage style dresses for sale - I did a bit of a squeak when I saw a whole rail dedicated to sizes 20-28



My own outfit for the day was a black and white checked dress from Simply Be. When I first got it, I was in two minds over whether to keep it or not. By the time I'd made up my mind, it was too late to return anyway. Which is just as well, as I love it now!



Some other stalls that caught my eye






I so need this bag in my life....

As the weather was so lovely, this little ice-cream selling caravan seemed to be doing a roaring trade



And it seemed rude not to indulge (salted caramel - gorgeous)


Some of my favourite purchases from the day (there's also a stack of Commando magazines for him himself - no photos of that unfortunately)


Handmade pass/travel card holders

Yellow Vintage Fairs are such a good day, there really is something for everybody and I lost count of the number of times I walked past a stall saying 'I remember having one of those when I was a kid!'. Can't wait for the next one now.

Thanks for reading

Cathy

  2. I know! They're a local seller in here in Southampton, so I might be tempted to visit them and get one
