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

TheSydneyFair2013_18In it’s second year, The Sydney Fair is on again at the Byron Kennedy Hall, Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park for four days only. So it’s time to frock up and take your favourite vintage loving guy or girl and come along to the Fair.

With everything for sale, the fair covers all areas of the 20th Century- Art Deco – Mid Century and Vintage. With more Australian and international dealers than last year, the Fair has a bit of everything; fashion and couture, jewellery, art, posters, furniture, porcelain, lighting plus a Hollywood couture exhibition.

For the first time, designer fashion from the Hollywood greats will be available for purchase. With many pieces from the leading designers of the 40’s and 50’s, this includes Marilyn Monroe’s favourite designers Ceil Chapman. Who wouldn’t want to purchase a piece of wearable history?


Held in the deliciously Art Deco Ballroom – The Byron Kennedy Hall venue captures the vintage feel and compliments its gorgeous vintage wares. While you’re there, why not try to spot the 1926 Miss Australia Trophy or the 1.7 metre high bronze camel.

If you’re getting married and are looking for the perfect vintage wedding fashion accessories, then this is the place to be! Get creative; you could find some beautiful vintage gowns, acquire a unique Art Deco Engagement ring, or perhaps you can decorate your newly wed pad with an 1960’s Egg Chair, some original posters from the 1920’s or go all out on an Art Deco Dining Suite.
