Leeds Affordable Vintage Fair and Ruby Macintosh

We had a fantastic day on Sunday at our last Leeds fair of the season. Nearly 600 of you dropped in to the Riley Smith Hall during the day to take advantage of the many bargains on offer from our 40 lovely traders and left looking happy and laden with many a bag! We had fantastic menswear from Princes Vintage, gorgeous jewellery from Victoria Vintage, Leonore Holder and Dolls and Molls as well as stunning homeware from Benjamin Jay, to name but a few of the traders. The Marvellous Tea Dance Ladies were also there with their fabulous cupcakes, three of which I had the pleasure of sampling (including their new Tiramisu flavoured cupcake which was gorgeous) and our very own vintage fair in house singer, Ruby Macintosh, serenaded us with her fantastic covers and original tunes throughout the day.

In fact, I was flicking through an old copy of ‘You’ magazine the other day (dated 16th august 2009 so practically vintage!) and who should I happen to come across but none other than Ruby. She was being covered in their article about stars of the future and was even featured on the contents page looking ever the lovely 50’s starlet.

We will be in Leicester this weekend so if you missed the Leeds fair, make sure you pop along.

See you there!
