Our Xmas fair.. the last for 2017! 🎄✨❄️🎄

by Matthew Adams


In just a little under a month we'll be back on the King's Road for our last vintage fair of the year! 2017 has passed by so quickly and we're excited to have added another date so that our traders can bring their finest winter picks & rare vintage finds to Chelsea Old Town Hall in December. 

A little inspiration from our Pinterest page below & from past fairs ✨

Back to the fair..

by Matthew Adams


A great start to the autumn/winter season of our vintage fairs was had this September with avid shoppers and designers who came to visit us at Chelsea Old Town Hall.  Favourites from the fair were detailed sequin capes and jackets, embroidered bohemian blouses and pieces from 1970's designers such as Janice Wainwright and Yuki.  There were a few new faces to the fair as some of our regular stallholders were still on their travels and they made a fine addition to the day.  

We'll be returning in mid October for our next event so not too far away on the horizon.  A few pics below..

Notes from our antiques fair

by Matthew Adams


Alongside Frock Me, we've been running our antiques fair in central London since the 1970's.  Held at the Edwardian Lindley Hall in Victoria, which was originally designed for floral displays, the building alone is a stunning setting for an event.  A few photos of our recent events are below.

At each fair we try and capture just some of the amazing pieces our stallholders have brought with them before they get snapped up! We thought we'd share a few of our favourites here.

Our summer vintage fair

by Matthew Adams


We held our vintage fair of the summer last weekend and thought we'd share some snippets of the day.. As ever, there was some truly inspiring vintage on display, with vintage Ossie Clark blouses, embroidered kimonos and 1970's bohemian dresses proving to be as popular as ever.
