Another Sunday and another vintage fair in London: The Primrose Hill Vintage Fair held in Cecil Sharp House, home of the English Folk Dance and Song Society.
There are loads of these fairs around in London but this is one of the better organised. The stock is authentic (ranging from 1800s to the 1980s), there's a good selection without it being overwhelming, and the pieces are well priced. Even the more exquisite designer label pieces are affordable here. But, best of all, the stall owners seem genuinely passionate about what they do and happy to spend time talking to customers.
The fair is organised by Marilyn Tye and upcoming dates are 10 July and 11 September. Suzanne and and her daughter Milly were helping run the show yesterday. If you love quality vintage and a lovely afternoon's shopping away from the usual crowded London shopping streets, the £3 admission is a bargain.
