This Saturday Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair came to Derby and being a lover of all things vintage I dragged along my lovely Mum along to have a browse with me.
The fair was held at the Assembly rooms in the city centre and seemed to prove very popular as the event was absolutely rammed. The clothes on sale ranged from 1940’s to the 90’s and it was great having a rummage through the rails for a bargain! My Mum kept telling me how she regretted throwing away all her old stuff now as it seemed they were all back in fashion!
As well as the stalls inside there was also a little cafe area set up selling slices of cake and cute little cupcakes, which I of course had to give a try! Sarah Russel from The Vintage Hair Salon was also there creating gorgeous vintage hair styles which I would have loved to have tried myself but unfortunately she was fully booked, maybe next time!
I made a couple of cheeky purchases a lovely burgundy ‘floppy’ hat and also an oversized checked shirt. I’ve been wanting a floppy hat for agggges but have never found the right one, I can’t wait until spring is here so I can start wearing mine. There was loads of lovely stuff for sale but as it was vintage clothing the majority of the stuff was just a tad too big for me.
Although it was pretty rammed at times and hard to get around (no fault to the organizers, just proof of how popular the event is), I had a great day out at Lou Lou’s vintage fair and would definitely recommend it if you are a vintage lover or even if you just fancy a browse.
