Making the most of what might be my last free Saturday until the new year, I went to a vintage fair yesterday.
Not with any intentions of buying really, but mainly because it was in Cutlers' Hall, a building I have never been in before, despite living in Sheffield for over 30 years.
But wouldn't you know it, even though I had my I'm only browsing head on, I stumbled across this mid-1960s mod style two piece suit, and couldn't resist.
The coat with its detachable hood looks remarkably contemporary, I think.
Wearing the pieces together is a little too much, but if I separate them...
...I think they're groovy!
Gorgeous mid-60s chicks.
1980s boots - Second to None, Walsall
Pendant - gift from bostin bird Vix
Bangles and tights - charity shopped
1950s tapestry bag - vintage shop, Birmingham
This is my kind of shopping centre;
...with Master Cutlers of the past gazing down from the walls...
...a fine staircase, beautiful examples of Sheffield's industrial heritage, and a stunning Victorian tiled floor.
The vintage stalls contained the usual eclectic mix of eras, styles and prices on their tables and rails.
I adored this lurex maxi dress, and the Victorian style blouse was bought from Biba by the stall holder's mother in 1973.

And I also found my Christmas present from Simon, a beautiful vintage Windsmoor faux fur coat.
It came in under our allocated budget for gifts, so I pounced.
