Derby and Oxford fairs this weekend

I'm so excited that we're bringing the vintage fair to the Oxford Union this Saturday. Here's a quote from their website to show why I'm excited:

"In 1823 a group of students came together and set up a society that was one of the first of its kind, “having for its object the promotion of Debates and the maintenance of a Library and Reading Room”. Since then, the Oxford Union has become the most famous student society in the world. It has survived two World Wars and witnessed the foundation of 121 independent nations. It has seen forty-seven general elections, the reigns of eight British monarchs and thirty-eight US Presidencies. Union members have debated and voted on thousands of motions tracking the changes of the last 187 years. Nearly six hundred Presidents have made their mark here."

As we do most of our vintage fashion fairs in Student unions its fitting that we have decided to place our latest fair in the most famous union in the world!! Its a small venue so we've hand picked the best stalls to make sure the fair gives you all you'll need.

Here's how the union looks (we're going to have to move the benches)..

I'll post some pictures of how we made it look after the weekend.

We'll also be at Derby Student Union on Sunday with 40 stalls of the finest affordable vintage.

For all our dates and opening times please see our website:


  1. where is the best place to park near the union? or is it best to do park and ride? x

  2. Yes Oxford is a funny one for the old motorcars. Park and ride is a good option, though the nearest car park is in Westgate Shopping Centre which is run by Oxford City Council.
