Bag yourself a unique vintage dress like Alexa or Kate
Vintage fairs are all the rage as they are not only the perfect place to pick up a unique piece of clothing, jewellery or furniture, but also a chic bargain.

So it's an apt time for Lou Lou's Birmingham Vintage Fair to return to Birmingham at The Custard Factory in Digbeth on Saturday November 23 from midday until 5pm.



This fair traditionally attracts students, vintage fashion fans and antique collectors and includes shops dedicated to second-hand vintage clothes, table top stalls with unique retro gifts, accessories and jewellery plus vintage inspired beauty stores.

It's not a huge fair, but has a good range of clothes and a relaxed atmosphere to saunter around and pick up something that will stand out from the crowd.

The fair is also being set up in Digbeth where there is already a strong base of vintage shops.

With the date being in the run up to Christmas, this time around, there is sure to be more of a festive theme to the stalls and will provide shoppers with the chance to peruse vintage present ideas and fashion buys for those multitude of Christmas and New Year's Eve parties.

Popularity for vintage has raged in recent years with uber-chic celebrities, including Chloe Sevigny, Winona Ryder, Alexa Chung and of course Kate Moss, mixing vintage fashion with modern classics to create a one-off look.

Entry to the Birmingham fair costs 1, but under-12s are allowed into the fair free.

Various fairs happen across the UK and more details can be found at the Lou Lou Vintage Fair website.

Your Comment
My boyfriend took me to Lou Lou last weekend as a surprise and I found myself amazed with their vintage stock. I am a vintage lover and I am always trying to find some old-school clothing and accesories to give a touch to my look. I also know that there are places online where you can find vintage clothing for sale (I had a great experience buying some leather boots fromwww.adoos.com ), is there any other website that you could recommend?
