I’m back on home turf! On Sunday I made the most of being back in the Motherland with a family day out in Edinburgh and a visit to Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair at the HMV Picturehouse. Here are some shots from the fair, including some swoon-worthy dresses, rather retro accessories and pretty vintage trinkets that caught my eye…
Beaded evening bags and the perfect retro vanity case from Violet Rose Vintage; gorgeous Fifties lace detail sundress (a wee bit small) from Goodbye, Norma Jean; amazing tartan jacket with velvet trim (a wee bit big – I was having a Goldilocks kind of day), also Violet Rose Vintage.
Vintage knitwear (love the textures and colours); Mary Poppins tapestry bag – practically perfect in every way; and the most beautiful tortoiseshell perspex box clutch (both Violet Rose Vintage).
Pretty, detachable Peter Pan collars – love the tartan; polka dot evening gloves Daisy Buchanan would approve of; vintage champagne saucers fit for a party of Gatsby proportions.
Vintage crockery – chintzy floral prints and Sixties teapots; pretty plates and a flower-detail basket; yet another basket (lots to choose from at Judy’s!) making me dream of Summer picnics on West Sands.
A vintage suitcase full of retro hats (love the floppy Seventies camel hat); more hats from Goodbye, Norma Jean; cute floral dungarees (Nineties style was big at the fair too).
One of my favourite stalls at the fair: new discovery ‘Froggy Went Courting’, which specialises in ‘vintage attire for gentlemen’. I loved the accessories – vintage cufflinks and tie pins, plus beautiful grooming kits. How very dapper.
And here are my wee purchases! I’ve started a small vintage crockery collection – convinced I’m hoarding for the day my Mum and I open our vintage cake shop in Edinburgh…

I didn’t manage to catch the name of every stall – if I’ve missed you out then please let me know! You can read my previous posts about Judy’s here.
