Biggleswade Antiques Fair & Haul

It has been awhile now since I had a nose around a vintage/antiques fair. The last event I attended was back in December- you can read about my visit to Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair, Cambridge here.

Anyway, as I was scrolling through ‘what’s on St Neots’ lists online, I came across an event for an Antiques Fair being held a town over in Biggleswade. Not really knowing what to expect I figured I would give it a go – I’m so glad that we did as it was absolutely amazing!

Today I thought I would share with you a few of the wonderful pieces I picked up, as well as give you some info on the fair. It’s held monthly so is well worth a visit if you’re in the area!

Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair, Cambridge

Vintage is quite often seen as the ‘in’ or ‘trendy’ thing these days. It’s become cool to dig through vinyl, re-purpose crazy printed shirts and deck yourself out in accessories from bygone eras.

I myself am a big fan of all things vintage and can easily see why others are so drawn to it. Asides from the ecological/recycle and re-use aspect of it all, vintage items are generally of a better quality and last much longer than their modern counterparts. Additionally, the design/style is better thought out and more unique than what is on the (mass-produced) market these days. After all, who wants a cheap, plastic-smelling bag that’s on every other persons arm when you could own a beautiful handmade number for a fraction of the cost?
