The Sydney Fair 17-20 May 2018

This one goes out to all my Sydney friends (and those who can make it to Sydney) who want to know where to source vintage clothes in Australia. The Sydney Fair is one of my favourite events – not only a gorgeous range of vintage fashion, including 1920s originals from some of our best dealers […]
