Tables and more....

Ooops, have not blogged in a while... but I have been busy picking up some great bits of furniture and homeware.  I'll also be back at the amazing North London Vintage Market tomorrow with some great new bits!  Have a peek at the photos below and if you can make it tomorrow; one word: do!

Bethnal Green Bonanza!

So the last few weeks have all been building up to this one big weekend in the East End.  If you near by or even if you aren't! I think it'll be worth the trip into London for one big weekend of vintage.  I have so much stock I'm drowning in it.  My storage unit overflowed weeks ago.. first into my flat then my parents spare room (sorry parents).  But it should all be worth it this weekend.  Saturday is the return of Judy's Affordable Vintage fair - the big fashion one!  If you've been before you will know it's the mother of all vintage fairs and it's affordable too (clue's in the name). 

Sunday sees the return of The Vintage Furniture Flea (my new favourite event).  I love it but my house does look rather crowded in the build up to it!  I have bruised my leg at least 5 times in the last couple of weeks on the 50s kitchen unit hiding behind my front door in my very small hallway.  I have chairs, tables, rugs, lamps... and all round general quirky stuff I've managed to pick up.  Beats a Sunday spent in Ikea anyway.  Details below and some snaps.  See you there.  Be sure to say hello!

These lovely ladies are coming with me.....

I picked this up the other day.  Vintage 1970's telly....... wonder what's on..

Last Saturday's market & social media crazy....

So, I had a great time at the North London Vintage Market on Saturday.  In a small hall in lovely leafy Crouch End there were some of the loveliest homewares, I was very suprised I didn't go home with more than I arrived with!  I've posted a few pics below of my stall from Saturday.

Aside from that we have some breaking news! A social media update!  Just to make it as easy as pie to follow us there are now several way to do so.  The Carrie's Vintage finds blog is here to stay, there's also the new and improved website.   I'm still tweeting all the important info, follow us on twitter here.  And in addition to that we now have a facebook page where you can like us, post stuff and have a peek at some photos.  And we also have a new Flickr page where you can see all our photos. 

So whichever is your social media of choice I think we've got it covered!!  Let me know if I've missed your choice out!

North London Vintage Market this Saturday

I've just got back from a little stock shopping trip and am super excited as have 2 bags sitting on my sofa full of 1960s dresses, all just perfect for the a/w 60s trend.  I'll be bringing them with me to the next Affordable Vintage Fair in Bethnal Green on September 10th.  For a full list of upcoming fairs have a look here.

But before that I'll be heading to Crouch End tomorrow for the North London Vintage Market where I'll have furniture and general quirky homeware.  The fair is a real treasure trove of vintage and retro homeware.  See you there hopefully, details below.
