Review | Liverpool's Affordable Vintage Fair

Vintage is something I have always loved and admired so when I heard that there was a Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair happening right in Liverpool (thanks to Facebook!), I knew I had to go and check it out...and I was not disappointed. 

Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair was born 7 years ago in the lovely town of Leeds as an aim to create a place where amazing vintage traders from all over the UK could showcase their vintage garments, jewels, home ware and more. It's the ultimate treasure trove for vintage lovers. The fair is held in over 30 cities in the UK, so if it sounds like your kind of thing, take a look at their website here or visit their Facebook page for more information- it's well worth a visit.


Me and my friends headed into town to the grand Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral where the fair was held, with our purses at the ready to find some vintage bargains...


One of my favourite stands was The Vintage Corner (pictured on right) who had an amazing selection of jewelled, sparkly tops that I was instantly drawn to. They also have a store in Waterloo, Liverpool as well which I am dying to go and check out.

My vintage bargain find of the day...

I found this beautiful vintage satchel right at the start of the fair, it was like vintage love at first sight. I begged my parents to come back to the fair with me (who are over to visit) and let me buy this, thanks M&D! The bag is in perfect condition and it looks like it's never been used at all so I'm really happy to have found such a bargain, considering the very similar classic Cambridge satchel is at a whopping £108! I think vintage is becoming my new best friend...

As for my friends, I can confirm they all had a great time there too, leaving with bags and bags of new additions to their wardrobes. It was so much more fun than trawling round a high street store as each item was so different from the other and had a story to tell. There was also tea and cake being served next door if you needed to take a break from the shopping and you just can't go wrong when tea and cake is involved.

Whether you're into clothes, jewellery, collectables or homeware ...there is literally something for everyone at Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair.

The BoeJack Bag

I sometimes refer to myself as a bit of a 'bag lady' as no matter where i'm going, I always seems to have a bag on me to carry around my essentials. So, when the lovely people over at CamdenTown.com sent over this beaut of a handbag- I fell in. loveCamdenTown.com is an online fashion store created to promote unique and independent designers just like Boejack designs. This bag is made from real leather in a rich burgundy colour (which just happens to go perfectly with my DM's hoho), Japanese linen fabric and a hint of blue denim...it even comes with a detachable chain strap so it can be used as a carry about clutch instead. It's the perfect size-not too big and not too small...just like in the story of Goldielocks, it's just right! I can fit everything in there I need without having to carry any extra bags around with me, it's like the answer to my fashion prayers!

The quality of the bag is on point and I can see it lasting me a lifetime. I really can't fault it and I cannot wait to wear it even more! It's also easy peasy to return your item if you are not satisfied (which I really doubt you would be) from CamdenTown.com as they offer 15 days free returns! You can check out more of their wonderful range of bags here.
