Lou Lou's Vintage Fair Nottingham
My experience at the award winning fair that covers the UK!
Hey there loves! I'm thrilled to be bringing to you another of my experiences at one of the UK's popular events; Lou Lou's Vintage fair! Now, some of you may or may not know that I'm like a kid in a candy shop when it comes to vintage stores, that's because I have a passion for the 1950s fashion, beauty and morals. It's been a style that I've developed over time and find it my most comfortable look to have. The 50s was known for their poodle skirts and pin curls and I find it such a beautiful and glamorous era that a little find is like treasure to me.
I've heard a lot about Lou Lou's as they usually take place in cities all over the UK and because Nottingham is the city I tend to most visit, seeing that they had one arriving there this month was something I couldn't pass up.
The event took place in the stunning Albert Hall in Nottingham, where like minded fans gathered, stalls were covered in all things vintage and they played music that would make you do a happy little jig through the speakers.
For this event, there were two floors of vintage stalls from furniture and china teacups to handmade bespoke hats and children's dresses. From arriving at the ticket desk, there were small tables where you could have a nice cup of tea and homemade cake from Lil's Parlour to even a pop up salon with the Diamond Diva's on hand to make those gorgeous victory rolls come alive!
It was pleasant to see lots of handmade crafts too, with flowing conversations of their passion and ideas which I give them all my very best to.
I did bag some bargains too! My go to stall had to be Minimum Mouse where I purchased some quirky brooches and 50s cat eye shades which I can't wait to model!
I would definitely recommend any vintage enthusiast to attend one of these fairs, just to collect inspiration or add to their collection.
I'm sure this will be the first of many fairs I'll be going to this year that's for sure!
