Newcastle Does Vintage

Back in May I had the pleasure of stumbling across a vintage fair at the beautiful Theatre Royal in Newcastle. It was a fabulous event and thankfully wasn’t a one-off as ‘Newcastle Does Vintage’ returns to this prestigious venue on 29th September and 16th November!


For the bargain price of just a quid you can browse rails and rails of unique vintage clothing and homewares. All the stall holders are hand picked by the organisers ‘Britain Does Vintage’ and they seem to really care about the choice of vintage goods on offer. Everything from the period clothing to the retro sweeties were top quality and there was even entertainment from a swing singer!




You can find out more about the vintage fair on facebook. My pictures really don’t do the event or indeed the setting justice, so try and get there yourself and please let me know what vintage treasures you manage to uncover!
