On Friday my lovely girl and I took a little trip to london to visit the Vintage Village at the Southbank.
Brightly painted beach huts and vintage ice cream and fish and chip vans were dotted along the river bank.
Once inside the vintage village as well as all the lovely vintage clothes and home wares stalls there was a pop up vintage tea room.
On the vintage high street there were a range of shops including the beautifully decorated Horrockses shop.
The dresses on display were gorgeous and the prints were the inspiration for the lovely vintage style bed linen.
In the shadow of the London Eye the Chap Olympiad took place.
I arrived just as the cucumber sandwich discus throwing event was taking place.
Also on the high street was a hair salon courtesy of Batiste if you fancied a couple of Victory Rolls and right next door a beauty salon courtesy of Benefit to add the finishing touch.
A colourful vintage fun fair was also in full swing.
We had a great day, the sun shone and there was a fabulous outdoor food market at the front of The Royal Festival Hall. I managed to track down Vicky of Vicky Loves Vintage who was selling in one of the marquees. Vicky is a regular seller at our vintage fairs but this was a completely different league !
I found this gorgeous double eiderdown in the Oxfam pop up shop.It is in wonderful condition, lovely and plump with no stains. I gave it a quick wash and dried it on the line in the sunshine yesterday. This was a real bargain considering where I found it and certainly much cheaper than on ebay.
I also found this cute Chad Valley seaside pail on the lovely Acorn and Will stall.
This pretty vintage French 1930s fabric covered box was another bargain find.
