Rock Around Randwick – Vintage Fair

How very like me to start a blog and then neglect to update it for weeks! Not due to a shortage of news, mind you – plenty of news, plenty of wonderful new 1920s vintage – but because events have done their usual business of swamping me. I had a major move back in April and have been playing catch-up ever since. However, things have been moving on and I’m still buzzing the innaugural Sydney Fair held this past weekend and some fabulous purchases there, so updates are coming soon.

In the meantime, just a note not to forget that there’s a vintage fair out at Randwick this weekend for you Sydneysiders.

The theme this time is 1950s (with some 60s via a display of Mod fashions), and it’s titled Rock Around Randwick – Vintage Fair, organised by The Way We Wear fairs and Randwick City Council. 20 stallholders and Vintage and retro clothing, accessories, homewear, free entertainment…

When: 22 – 23 June 2013

Time: Sat 10 – 5.00 pm, Sun 10.00 – 4.00 pm

Location: Randwich Town Hall

Admission: Free

We went a couple of years ago to the All that Jazz version of the fair and had some great finds (courtesy of Online Antiques and Coutura Vintage)…everything from an Edwardian coat to a 1920s lamé cape. I also took my little seven year old niece along to introduce her to vintage shopping, and she had a perfectly marvelous time – she started a cat broach collection. I know that Lena from Coutura will be taking her stock there, so that alone is worth the visiting the fair.
