Birmingham Vintage Fair

Where Vintage meets shabby chic and handmade

What

A vintage fair with a difference; it’s a complete afternoon out with vintage clothes, pre-loved accessories, shabby chic home furnishings and handmade (in Birmingham) with art stirred in to the mix.

The nostalgic mood will also stretch to music and refreshments including coffee and cakes supplied by local Birmingham companies and possibly even makeup and hair sessions.

Why

Birmingham and in particular the Jewellery Quarter is a hot bed of creative talent and Birmingham Vintage Fair is the event to celebrate this.

Birmingham is also full of  stylish people who crave new ideas, unique products and we know how to have a good time and while-away a gorgeous afternoon in June. We can even sit in the courtyard!

Who’s Who

Visitors – students, home owners, professionals, locals, vintage & Shabby chic enthusiasts

Stall holders – local producers and suppliers of clothes, accessories, home furnishings + foods (Stall prices coming soon)

Me – a non-brummy who loves Birmingham. Apart from writing, I love music, clothes and cakes and find it tedious to organise an event without these three factors included. Sometimes I manage to get travel and football in there too.

The theme of 2011 is very much 1970s (until the Fashionista’s tell us otherwise in about 74 seconds) so the decade that style forgot is absolutely fine with me for both music and design concept.

You ideas and opinions are very much sought so please email me on rickie@birminghamvintage.co.uk
