The Sydney Fair | 17 – 20 May 2018 + Ticket Giveaway

The Sydney Fair is on again and to celebrate, I’ve got a few tickets to give away. Keep reading below to find out how to enter.

For me, I think my love of vintage started when I was young and I would visit my Auntie’s house. Her home (still to this day) is a treasure trove of wonderful findings from all over the globe and eras. From little trinkets, to kitsch paintings, to very 80’s evening dresses, to her old dancing shoes, to beautiful scarves and brooches. I used to love jumping into her closet and playing dress up for hours. She has a love of handmade items too and we can talk for hours about the beautiful fashion of Dior or Chanel. I loved when she pulled out an item and told me a story about how it came to be. The moment she found it, how it made her feel, when she wore it and how special it was to her. I think that’s the power of something that’s an antique or vintage, it has had a whole other life and now it has a new opportunity to be loved and appreciated again and again.

If you love vintage or antique items, it can be hard to have the time to visit all these different stores around Sydney, so why not let them come to you. The Sydney Fair is coming to town and it’s a great opportunity to find that special something that you’ve been searching for.

With over 60 Australian and International best 20th Century, Art Deco, Vintage and Antique dealers on display, hopefully you can something to tickle your fancy.

Held at the beautiful setting of the Royal Hall of Industries at Moore Park, vendors have hand selected some special pieces and hope to give them a new home.

There’s so much on display, if you’re thinking about acquiring an engagement ring, a dining suite, a fabulous necklace from a Hollywood Costume designer, a poster or print, everything from Furniture, Art, Lighting, Bronzes, Porcelain and glass, this is the place to be.

For the Fashionista, on Saturday and Sunday there will be fashion parade and a gorgeous courture exhibition to celebrate the love of fashion. Check the website for more info on events
