Le Chat Noir Vintage Fair!

I'm just back from Le Chat Noir's second vintage fair, i'm on such a happy buzz after it! It was a lovely day, I paired up with my friend Sarah to run a stall with prints, badges, screenprinted tees, some hand-drawn shirts, vintage clothes & jewellery. Jill (from Wild Floral Couture) and Leona did a great job organising it.

There were some fab stalls from Turquoise Flamingo, Wild, Mercury goes Retrograde, Rosa Through the Looking Glass, Alice Halliday, Peacock and Ruby, Miss Daisy Blue.... the list runs on! I'm focusing on the Cork stalls here, there were loads of great stalls. It's also really inspiring seeing so many women starting their own businesses, in these times of "no jobs here" they're really making opportunities for themselves. I wonder as well is the massive interest in vintage at the moment anyway related to the global economic collapse? Maybe people are looking for ways to consume less and live more sustainably via recycling. Plus I guess vintage is just gorgeous!

So you can possibly tell i'm in a bit of a gushy mood after what was a really fab day! Here are a few photos from the first Vintage Fair in May and Le Chat Noir photo shoots, can't wait for the next event!!
