Yesterday saw the first Vintage Nation event taking place at Brighton Racecourse. My sister came down to see me and we braved the wind to go and have a look. I was quite looking forward to the fake beach, but we were too scared of the wind and stayed inside for most of the time!
I sadly didn’t manage to get any photos of inside as I was too busy rummaging around the stalls! Everywhere was decked out with balloons and bunting and there were more sellers than I expected with clothes, furniture and knick-knacky bits and bobs. I was on the hunt for any blouses with cute collars but sadly didn’t find any that were my size. I did come across two fantastic dresses; one pale yellow broderie anglaise and the other powder blue lace. They were a little above my budget however, so I had to leave them for someone else.
I spied lots of pretty floral glassware too, but think I need to start putting some money by for special vintage outings! I did pick up lots of pretty business cards, so I can shop online at a later date. I also treated myself to a very cute kitsch little deer. He seduced me with his big eyes and I had to have him!
Are you going to any vintage events this summer?
