What a day we had last Sunday! First the Hammersmith Vintage Clothes, Textiles and Accessories Fair and then, in the afternoon, another vintage fair near Sadlers Wells. Apparently there is also a regular vintage textiles fair at Borough Market so that is top of places to visit next time we hit the Big Smoke. I'll post any information regarding the above so if you happen to be in London you might pencil events in your diary.
A 1920s sheer black chiffon silk dress
A cotton mix 50s frock
A to-die-for 1920s fringed shawl
Hand embroidered vintage table cloth
Buttons on original card
Sublime lace and silk lingerie
Dorothy would be proud to wear these flawless red 1940s shoes
Gorgeous hand-quilted throw in perfect condition
Child's hand-smocked silk dress
Probably my favourite - a 1950's bikini. Doesn't get any better....
Unused 1950s fabric length
Beuatiful detail from the back of a 1930's tennis dress
Silver card case with hand-embroidered leather inside pocket
Red gloves and emeralds - every girl should have them
1970s gold sling-backs - I would have crawled over hot coals for these when I was a teen.
Yes, this is indeed a hat. My mother wore one just like this to a family wedding in the 60s
Beautiful 1950s cotton sleeved work overall - way too pretty for housework
More fabulous 1920s underwear. May not do much but boy, these looked gorgeous.
Pretty checked full-length house coat with raglan sleeves.
