The beautiful Art Nouveau Old Finsbury Town Hall will be filled with over 50 traders, an alterations service, a tearoom and live music from Steve Conway to delight your senses. Steve’s a swing style vocalist specialising in music from the Rat Pack era to Rock Swing.
Womenswear, menswear, accessories, jewellery (for the perfect romantic gift) and textiles from the Victorian era to the 1980s will be for sale; there’s something for everyone in these vibrant halls with prices starting at just £5 to over £100.
We’re excited to welcome some fantastic NEW traders to the fair for the first time too:
Paradise Hawaii Vintage will be taking us on a tropical honeymoon as they return to London for the first time in five years! Their collection of vintage womenswear designed and made in Hawaii is something truly unique that you won’t be able to walk away from. Delve through rails of chic Pake MuuMuus, Island Cheong Sam gowns, formal swing dresses and amazing sarong-style 1950s wiggle dresses from notable designers such as Alfred Shaheen and Kamehameha. Rare pieces will be individually priced whilst others can be purchased in bulk.
Joan McGee of Mama J Vintage Goods carries a wide variety of womenswear with a particular focus on the 1930s to 1950s. As fanatical about film and theatre as she is about fashion, there’s a certain cinematic romance to her selection.
Ooh La La! Vintage is coming all the way from the city of love with their exquisite clothing and accessories sourced in Paris. They also run vintage tours and masterclasses – we’ll be booking in next time we hop on the Eurostar.
Modern taste with a vintage eye, Kitty Verity sources accessories and jewellery with a flair for the unique. A specialist in the Art Deco era, many of her pieces are rare finds.
Isabella Ferreti, Cinzia Sothcott and Pip Hackett have a wealth of fashion experience between them. Isabella trained as a fashion designer in the 1970s and collects and restores vintage, while Cinzia is an art restorer with a lifelong passion for collecting, wearing and selling vintage and Pip has been collecting vintage since she was a teenager, as well as training as a couture milliner at Royal College of Art.
So Vintage UK bring a superb mix of quality menswear, womenswear, accessories and collectibles from 1920s through to 1970s with something for all tastes. Pieces are also available for hire for film and fashion shoots.
From highly covetable designer womenswear to label-less items and costume jewellery, Stefanie Fraubraun’s array is selected with wearability in mind. A former curator at The Photographer’s Gallery, her selection skills have come in handy in the vintage world too.
Debbie Oliver brings ten years of expertise with her, as well as a great array of wardrobe classics from the 1950s & 1960s in great condition.
Prop and set designers Naughty Magpie will be joining us too with textiles, accessories and unusual pieces for men and women accumulated from film and theatre productions.
Formerly in the antiques world, Chota Bazaar moved into pre-1970s clothing, millinery, accessories and small collectables five years ago. Perfect for gifts or beautiful treats for yourself.
Celeste Wyatt returns to us after a year hiatus with haberdashery, vintage sewing patterns and buttons galore to satisfy craft lovers, design teams and fashion students
