Yeah what the frock! Not only am I missing LFW I’m not up-to-date with the retro/vintage news. For pitty sakes I’m missing all the vintage fairs! If you’re like me (and oh my gosh I hope not) and want the low down on all things retro and vintage here’s some things you might wanna sign up to and visit.
Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair
Mentioned by London Fashion Week (and yes I missed it how sucky am I?!). I want to get my bargain on! #thriftbaby!
The Grand Vintage Fair
I have not yet gone but when I do you’ll hear about it, read about it and get totally sick of me going on about till your like “For goodness sakes women SHUT U- ooh that’s nice”. Don’t worry the info is on the page. #Allaboutindependantbusiness

Old Spitalfields Market
Coz’ we love a good ol’ market right? On that subject of markets…
Check out Deptford Market located at 200 Deptford High St London SE8 3PR every WEDNESDAY and FRIDAY*, don’t be rolling up to the market at whatever time coz’ you’ll miss all the cool stuff (times are 8:00am till 2:00pm-ish*). I’ve kinda sorta not really banned myself from there because I’m a junkie for Deptford Market (especially for Sharon’s fabric stall…I would tell you more about her stall but I want her to myself however if you’re dying to know you’ll have to get me on a one-to-one via Twitter @leleloves72, warning I (and others) WILL fight you (just saying)…(she frockin’ amaz-balls!) #GOGOGO!
Check out Bromley Road Market / Car Boot sale located at Catford Wanderers Sports Club Car Park, Junction Of Bromley Road, Downham, Catford, SE6 3NU every TUESDAY and THURSDAY*, like I stated before don’t be la-dee-da (times are 8:00am till 1:00PM-ish*). Just another place I end up with my ma. #MarketMadness!
