Greetings vintage fans!
This weekend, we said tundra be damned, grabbed an extra layer and headed North West way for a rather special new event – The Manchester Vintage Kilo Sale!
A sister venture of Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair, the premise is a simple one: pair up with Europe’s largest vintage wholesaler, cart over 10 TONNES of vintage clothing to one location and let you lot have it for a measly £15 per kilo. With queues snaking through the door, we handed the camera over to event manager and all round good egg Emily [pictured above] to take some snaps. Picking her faves, here’s what she found…
‘In spite of the weather, spring prints were in abundance, from sweet floral pastels to the totally tropical. Daring to brave the cold and drop a layer or two, this skirt was a favourite – perfect for picnics, bare legs and a saunter about town!’
‘Despite being the time of year when coats and jackets should be cast to the back of the wardrobe, fair-goer Judith bagged herself a bargain with this belted suede coat. We loved the utilitarian colour [grey – goes with everything!] and how it nipped in at the waist, giving a sense of shape to the silhouette.’
‘Our favourite find of the day, the lovely Michelle finds some maroon pantaloons worth swooning over! Paired with a sixties blouse [and that hair!] we’re a little jealous that we didn’t spot them first!’
And so, there we go -a wonderful day at the Kilo! Thanks to all who came out and, to see when we’ll be coming to you, be sure to take a look here!
