On Saturday, Mr. Michie took me down to Southbank to the Vintage Fair. We had so much fun, it was like stepping through the looking glass, but instead of ending up in Wonderland, I ended up in the fabulous 1940’s & 50’s.
I didn’t know where to look first, there were amazing stands everywhere. Selling everything from fashion to furniture, to home wares, to accessories. I found a few little surprises and some things to tuck away for Christmas.
There was a stand where you could get your make-up done as a pin-up girl and another stand where you could have your hair pinned up in any decade’s style. There were some stunning looking hairdos walking out of that stand. I was so tempted, but I knew Mr. Michie had been a good sport long enough. So off we headed to walk down by the river and stroll into Covent Garden where a certain French cafe beckoned us to tea on a deliciously sunny afternoon.
P.S. Goose Girl & Foxy came too, go to their blog to read about their adventures….
