Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair

A regular, large vintage fair that has racks of garments, jewellery, trinkets and homeware to browse through. There's also a pop-up nail bar and a retro tearoom with some scrummy-looking sweet treats. Plus they offer an alterations service, so you can still buy that something beautiful even if it doesn't fit.

This is possibly the best vintage fashion fair ever! Run by an amazing organiser who carefully curates her stall holders to ensure that customers have the chance to peruse and purchase the very best in vintage fashion time after time. If you love quality vintage, don't miss it!

It's been three years since I attended and I'm still talking about it. Perfect day out for anyone visiting London or a resident. Quite a lot to take in and experience. The hosts are amazing as well, Ms. Coleman makes you feel welcome!

The best Vintage show in London! Savitri and her team understand the needs of the public and industry presenting a high-quality vintage experience that includes garments and accessories, not forgetting the amazing cake, music, and alteration service. An inspiring shopping experience.

I'm sorry, but did I miss something? Advertised this weekend as "a Right Royal Knees Up with Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair For The Queen’s Official Birthday on 12th June......we'll be bringing out the bunting and celebrating with tea, cake and royal fashion.............Our tearoom will be jubilant with live music, singing some classic song’s from the Queen’s lifetime, and a spot of celebration cake, honouring the monarch who has not only been a strong ruler but a continued fashion icon." I guess I expected there to be a bit more atmosphere and buzz, perhaps a nice afternoon out, browsing, possibly purchasing the odd delightful dress and enjoying the some tea, cake, people watching and live music.

Instead I found the event 'flat', there was no sense of occassion at all. Ok so if I was there purely to find some new vintage clothes, I suppose I would have done ok, but I chose to bring some friends who don't wear any vintage simply because I thought they might enjoy the atmosphere, especially in such a stunning location, as Finsbury Town Hall.

As a vintage market I am sure this place is great for real collectors and I reckon if they didn't charge the £4.50 entry fee, more people would drop by, perhaps making some spontanious purchases and adding to the much needed buzz that was missing.

I also think having the band with seats to watch them and relax surrounded by some of the stalls in the main beautiful hall would have been a much better way to create the jubilance they promised and would bring in more people. But perhaps I missed the point and the market is there simply to serve those who wish to shop, which is fine, but if that's the case, please don't advertise it as more than that.
