Event:
Indulgent, girly afternoons
The Manchester Vintage Fair has turned Sackville Hall on Sackville street into a haven of all things vintage, antique, kitsch, and quaint.

It's arrived


Vintage makeovers and hairstyling, home-made cakes and tea, plus 30 hand-picked traders selling retro fashion and accessories all make for a delightfully girly afternoon at the The Manchester Vintage Fair this Saturday.

The hall is absolutely stuffed with all things vintage; clothing, shoes, bags, accessories, it is shoppers haven. Bring cash, but also your haggling skills because the stall holders are happy to barter.

I've only been to the Vintage Fair once, possibly because I spent so much last time, ate so much cake, and all in all, indulged a little too much.

Shopping galore


The fair is certainly a 'day out', kind of affair. Instead of scrimping on quality and the service, some of these kind of events offer, the hair stylists and make up artists go all out to make it a special day for each customer.

I never indulged in any hair treatments last time, but I did enjoy the cakes and my sisters and I pored over the delicate and dainty designs.

It's an ideal little spot if you need cheering up, and is all things vintage.
