A grand day out at Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair

Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair Bethnal GreenSo on Sunday I decided to head along to Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair with some chums. I was on the lookout for a seventies-style vintage sideboard and maybe see if they had any patterns/fabrics. It was pretty fantastic – not as much furniture as last year’s (I think a few sellers have realised the awesome power of ebay – boo) but lots more clothes and barware.
Look at this vintage sewing machine - what a beauty

Look at this little beauty. Isn’t she divine? I love that kidney shaped desk – so pretty.

I've got my eye on you sister sideboard

I spotted this soon after I arrived. It’s beautifully made and very well kept. The only thing that’s missing is a glass sliding door on the top shelf but it’s barely noticeable.

The first ever Wii?

A veritable vintage fabric bounty

There was an abundance of fabric but a lot of it was only suitable for cushions and upholstery work. I have plenty of that already.

Thanks Caroline!
