Throughout Blogtober I have been sharing snippets of my collections; from my Favourite Pieces In My Brooch Collection to What’s In My Record Collection?
I really do get a lot of enjoyment out of collecting stuff and things. Maybe I have a slight penchant for hoarding but in all honesty I love the hunt and thrill of finding a new piece. In recent years I really started to get in to collecting vintage and though this isn’t one of my more extensive collections, it’s one of the more interesting. For today’s Blogtober I thought I’d share with you a few bits and bobs that I really love.
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!
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?
October has been one of the busiest months of my life. Between moving house, working full-time and taking part in Blogtober, I’ve barely had the time to process it all. That said, it has been an exciting month – full of new and happy memories. As it is slowly coming to a close (I can hardly believe how quickly the month has passed!) I thought I would share my favourite things with you.
