Vintage at Goodwood♥

Gosh it's been a whirlwind the past few weeks which certainly isn't lacking in a few beautiful vintage finds and vintage events.

First off is Vintage at Goodwood. I went on the Friday with my lovely Mother as part of birthday celebrations and it really was a fab day, aside from the HUGE downpour of rain we had part way through the day.

There was lots of cute vintage stalls to have a browse around as well as a 'Vintage Highstreet'. The stalls were great and I picked up some really great bargains throughout the day. The Highstreet was slightly baffling however as it included stores such as John Lewis, Fortnum and Mason and even The Body Shop. These stores, although some are 'vintage' were quite clearly there because they were giving over a large portion of 'sponsorship' money to be there, which is slightly dissatisfying as it would have been nicer to see some smaller companies there.

Also what failed to materialise was Lily Allen's new vintage store, which is a real shame as it was a really emphasised feature of the event in the press.

That's all for now, I will be backtracking and updating on my past events in the next few days. I promise not to neglect this space so much in future!

Now I'm off to spend a lovely day at museums and having afternoon tea with friends, what fun!
