Review: Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair Bournemouth, February 8 2015

Regular altrocklife readers will remember my excitement at attending Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair, held in Bournemouth’s beautiful Pavilion in October last year.  If not, feel free to refresh your memory.

This building is so beautiful. Gotta love a bit of art deco.

Well, Lou Lou returned to the south coast yesterday, and my bank balance is still recovering.  As much as I enjoyed the fair there were noticeably fewer traders set up this time around.  On the plus side, it meant there was more space for the flocking crowds to browse, but the downside was much less choice than the fair in October.

Fliers and business cards collected at the vintage fair.

Even with the reduced number of traders, I still visited a lot of stalls and made quite a few purchases.  Take a peek at my haul, and please excuse my pirate themed desk-topper.  Maturity is my middle name.

Shirt: £25
Ring: £3
Necklaces: (Can’t remember if these were from Vintage Promise or Vintagelady, oops!) 2 for £10

I also picked a little something up from Sarah’s Victoriously Vintage, but I haven’t included a picture as it’ll be my Mum’s Mother’s Day present this year and I don’t want her getting a sneak peek.

Overall, I’d argue that I had an extremely successful shopping day.  Now I’m waiting for an excuse to wear my snazzy new shirt out, and I’ll be wearing plenty of blue so I can coordinate and match my new necklaces.
