Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair – Leamington Spa

This weekend I travelled across to Leamington Spa to visit Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair. I have had this date marked in my calender for months and I was super excited to see what was in store. As you can see from the photo below, the place is filled with loads of vintage clothes – there were about 45 stalls in all. Plus there was a tea rooms, and a retro hairdresser.

It was great fun, and the vintage really was affordable. My favourite item was a white and purple striped 60’s dress for only £15, but I left it behind (bit of a cash-flow issue here at the moment). I did, however, purchase a lovely Pierre Cardin coral and mushroom silk scarf for 2 quid (I’ll feature it in an outfit post soon).

There was not as much ‘stuff’ as I would like, with the emphasis mainly being on fashion, but it is definitely worth a visit, and even the £2 entry fee isn’t bad for a bit of a vintage outing.

The venue was stunning, the Assembly is a wonderful art deco building which originally stood as a dance hall. With sumptuous blues, large iconic lampshades, and interesting patterns dispersed throughout the venue, the Assembly is a joy to behold.

I will certainly visit again, but hopefully with a wodge of cash in my pocket too.
