Since kitsch, faux fur and oversized woolly cardigans made their resurgence into the fashion world, it seems we just can’t get enough of vintage. Sadly, reliving the years of revolution, rebellion and urbanity can often mean paying a pretty penny. Lucky for us, Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair will be showcasing an array of modest vintage delights at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse Hotel just weeks after the extremely well-attended Kilo Vintage Sale at the People’s History Museum. Shopped by the likes of Florence Welch and Daisy Lowe, Judy’s highly regarded mantra of unique, affordable vintage has taken them to over 30 cities across Europe, offering a huge array of choice goods as a viable alternative to the high street, as well as being genuinely affordable. Hand-picked vintage traders and designer-makers from all over the UK will be showcasing the vast collection of over 45 stalls within the industrial walls of this eclectic event space. Recently used for the BBC 6 Music Festival Fringe, the Victoria Warehouse Hotel offers an on-site cinema showing vintage films, a relaxation area (for a break from all the retail) and food in the boho, Ibiza/traveller culture-inspired cafe. In addition to tea and cake (and heartier retro fare), the Victoria Warehouse Hotel bar will be open for any wanting hair of the dog or a tipple to toast their new purchases.
Sun 27 Apr, Victoria Warehouse, Trafford Park Road,, M17 1AB, 11am – 4pm, £2 (under 12s go free), www.judysvintagefair.co.uk
