Having visited every town from Brimingham to Brighton, and swelling with retro goodness along the way, the Vintage Fair is finally stopping in the hip East End just in time for Christmas.
In an imposing Georgian church, you can expect stall upon stall of clothing, accessories and homewares from a bygone era, plus handmade jewellery and clothing inspired by it.
Scuffling for that unique item is going to take up some energy, so make sure you visit the tea room for some cupcakes and a cuppa – served in fine vintage china, of course. And if your hair becomes dishevelled digging for finds from the 1940s, then duck into the hair salon for a beauty touch up. You’ll emerge looking not unlike your vintage icon.
