Work has been kind to me lately, and I’ve been having Sunday’s off more often. I love when this happens! I get to go downtown to a church I truly enjoy going to, with a great community and service. Then I get to explore a thing or two, or have lunch with friends afterwards.
I stole these pictures from my mum’s camera. (excuse the date stamp!) I was too busy shopping around to take any pics!
This booth had Nigerian Pagne (Ankara as more widely known). I love African Wax Prints. I can’t wait to showcase more of my Ivorian Pagne outfits on the blog.
Hair accessories and pearls, my favouirte!
You can some what see my outfit here, a satin floral circle skirt from Banana Republic. A friend had given it to me, and being too big, I tightened the waist. The top is an 80’s A La mode button up tank top with weaving around the shoulders. A zara cardigan from a clotihng swap sealed with an ebay find of a sweater clip.
My mum and uncle loved this booth. They laughed about how all the things here…they used as kids! If only they kept them, they would have made a fortune!
Finally inside, This is one of 3 booths that had any sorts of clothing. I am dying for a vintage fur stole to wear with dresses and jackets but these were out of my price range.
Not so vintage pearl opera lenses! They had my Greek sorority name (Aria) Engraved in them and I just wanted these beauties so much more!
All in all, I was really disappointed with the booths at the fair. There was a lot of over priced jewellery and accessories. Very VERY little clothing, none of which I would even say was vintage. I was lucky to scramble away with a vintage lucite handle wicker purse that needs to be restored a bit, as well as an earring and necklace set and another set of earrings.
I probably won’t be venturing out to the St Lawrence Antique market again, until I know more clothing booths will be present!
To many more Sundays off and trips downtown
