Two Fairs, One Day | Part 1

Last weekend I visited my best friend Sarah (she has been mentioned numerous times, mostly because she’s amazing!!!). Anyway I popped over to Liverpool to see her and we managed to fit a whole load of stuff into our time together. We felt pretty clever….until we found outΒ how exhausting it all was! Great day though πŸ˜€

First fair of the day was the Empire and it was ‘Liverpool Does Vintage’. There were quite a few stalls packed into the entrance area and bar upstairs, but sadly it did feel a little underwhelming. On the positive side, my Bestie and I had a really great rummage through the rails and managed to find some magnificent pieces.

I really loved this dress I found and the price point was perfect. Sadly the size tag was not as perfect and I felt it would be dishonest to myself to buy something i would like never fit into.

I was a little surprised to find so few homeware stalls. As you know I’m keen vintage homeware enthusiast, so this was a bit disappointing. Bestie did manage to find a lovely little skirt, which she thought would be perfect for her holidays in a few weeks time.

Overall the fair was good, but I would like to see the fair in a better location next time with more light. With vintage I always prefer to be able to see every detail of the item I’m buying especially as I am unable to take it back.

The tearoom looked pretty cute, unfortunately as my Bestie has to be gluten free, we were unable to sample this menu!!

Overall I did expect a little more from fair but it was fun to discover some bits of vintage clothing. A must if you love your vintage clothes!

Part 2 – Artisans in the Palm House…coming soon!
