Return of vintage fashion fairs is “a no-brainer”

Step back in time and treat your inner fashionista as Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair returns to Lincoln this weekend.

The Engine Shed, venue to both fairs.

 Founder of the fair and former Selfridges personal shopper Judy Berger said: “With such a variety of different styles within the city and a prevailing vintage scene throughout, a return to Lincoln was a no-brainer.”

Stock consists of vintage, re-worked and handmade women’s and menswear items sourced from the past sixty years.

The fair prides itself on guaranteeing shoppers are paying up to 75% less than high street prices for their vintage pieces, making the venue ideal for students and bargain-hunters alike.

In addition to stalls from over forty different traders, the Tea Dance Ladies are on hand to offer refreshments and a DJ will be playing rock and roll, 1950s R&B and 1960s Beat on vinyl to add to the retro atmosphere.

Judy said: “We always have such a wonderful turn-out in Lincoln with families, fashion fans and students alike all looking for that perfect piece of the past to take away with them.”

Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair will be held in The Engine Shed on Saturday September 28th 11.00 am – 4.00 pm.

Next month will see another vintage fair hosted in the city but this one comes with a twist.

The Vintage Clothing Kilo Sale, a collaboration between Europe’s largest vintage wholesaler and Britain’s biggest vintage fair,  differs slightly from this weekend’s event.

Five tonnes of clothing will be brought to The Engine Shed and if you are interested in purchasing any of these items, the value is calculated by the weight of the produce.

The price is set at £15 per kilo, which is the equivalent to about four or five items for one kg.

The Vintage Clothing Kilo Sale will be open in The Engine Shed on Sunday October 13th from 11.00 am – 4.00 pm.
