The Sydney Fair 2014 Review


So I went along to The Sydney Fair over the weekend and I had a lovely time. It was nice to see some familiar faces again, but it was really great to see so many more stalls too. What I think separates this event from other similar events is the level of quality and caliber of the wares on offer. BTW, I fell in love with a gorgeous $7,000 Art Deco diamond watch from Chilton’s. Maybe one day 🙂

There’s just something about the Byron Kennedy Hall isn’t there, just have a look at this architecture. Tall ceilings, detailed lines, grand structure; this venue is just perfect for the Fair.

TheSydneyFair2014-27Check out this gorgeous ceiling.

TheSydneyFair2014-20Black sheep was a great find. This is the outdoor decorators dream with so many decorative favourites; turquoise slated blinds, old wooden letter blocks and tin and glass wares. If you want to find them they can be found on 54 Station Street by appointment on 0411286440.

I really loved the Hollywood Designers Exhibition but like every fashion enthusiast, I wanted more, more, more.

Coutura Vintage Fashion not only offered some beautiful dresses, they also had a gorgeous collection of accessories that are just to die for.

Who wouldn’t want this wicker elephant bag with pom poms… To die for right?


Coming all the way from Seattle for the show, Lucky Dry Goods certainly had the goods. There was the most amazing ladies blouse with hand painted clowns. Gorgeous right?

TheSydneyFair2014-v4Don’t you just love these pieces from San Francisco store Thrifted and Modern.

TheSydneyFair2014-12Aren’t these beaded shoes amazing?
