I had intended on getting this post out on Friday, but with things being topsy turvy around here it didn't happen. Anyway this post is about Brisbane's very first Everything Deco to Retro Fair which is run by our blogging pal Celia of Kitty's Vintage Kitsch. It's great to have another vintage fair in Brisbane, as so many over the years seem to have disappeared. I have to admit I don't go to these things with an intention on buying things (I'm not much help to my seller mates!), I have so much already so it would have to be something really special or something really cheap for me to make a purchase. There was a wonderful range of collectibles for all tastes, and the Captain and I had fun checking it out with my bestie Miss J and her hubby. Being a hot summer day a cotton frock was in order, this one has a zip front and is from the 60's.
My favourite thing about vintage fairs is catching up and squeezing vintage loving friends.
It was a treat to meet Millie of The pin up life for the very first time in the flesh.
