I was all geared up for a bit of splurge this weekend as the Frock Up Brisbane vintage fair was in town. I’ve previously confessed my guilty pleasure hunting for vintage Chanel while I was on honeymoon in Paris. There’re a bit that I haven’t confessed to my mum though, that her clip-on vintage Dior pearl necklace didn’t fall apart by itself, but was actually snapped by her 10-year-old daughter who was secretly raiding through her jewellery box – oops! I forgot since when I’ve started to dig into my mum’s jewellery box and my grandma’s wardrobe in search for the glamour from the old days.
My Sunday was picture perfect – cute vintage goodies, 30ºC on an autumn day, great time catching up with mygirlfriend, complemented with caramel slice and raspberry friands homemade by the lovely ladies at the vintage cafe.
Of course I wouldn’t leave the market empty-handed 🙂 Here are some of the vintage lovelies I took home:
Live in Brisbane and keen to get into the vintage scene? The Love Vintage Show is another highlight on every Brisbane vintage lovers’ calendar! The show also goes to Sydney and Melbourne.
Do you know any other fabulous vintage collectors’ events around Australia? Or are you an avid online shopper who loves to hunt for vintage gems from your favourite online stores? Personally, apart from Etsy and eBay that I’m absolutely hooked on, I also like to shop local. My most recent buy? Check out these cute antique bangles for sale at kalmarantiques.com.au – worth every drooling moment!
