Liverpools Largest Vintage Fair
Vintage? Textiles? Interiors? Check. The largest amount of vintage jewelry anyone has ever seen in one place? Double Check. That place being Liverpools largest Vintage Fair set right in the heart of the City itself at the beautiful St George's Hall.
I was like a deer in headlights when i saw the huge amounts of vintage clothes hanging in front of me ready to be rummaged through. It was the longest room you'd ever seen with rails upon rails of clean cut tartan, fur coats, wool jumpers, beautifully beaded skirts, 2 piece suits and a whole load of un-tampered antique dresses along side the odd stall selling bespoke reworked vintage items.
There was one stall that caught my eye with what could only be described as a Magpie's heaven. Jewelry dazzling in the perfectly placed spot light, piled up in worn wooden antique boxes stretched out across 3 tables. Of course i stood there for at least 10 minutes gorping and wondering weather to start from the left or the right and instead opted for the middle.
As well as vintage fashion stalls there were tables scattered with antique binoculars, old worn suitcases, beautiful white mirrors and large amounts of teacups and candles! One stall which lay delicious looking sandwiches, scones and cakes all neatly placed upon antique cake stands and surrounded by quaint little tea cups was unfortunately not for public tasting and where in-fact a display for a "Vintage Tea Party" business - a clever idea at that!
One of Liverpools best vintage markets by far with countless hours of rummaging and a beautiful place to group a whole load of antique!
