Sydney Vintage Clothing, Jewellery and Textiles Show

The Sydney Vintage Clothing, Jewellery and Textile Show is on this weekend! I was so excited when I found out about the show after I moved to Sydney June last year. Unfortunately I could not attend the show last year and it looks like I wont be able to attend this years show either! So I will just have to look forward to April 2010's show.

The event is held at Canterbury Park Function Centre at Canterbury Racecourse. It kicks off Friday night 5.30 - 9pm with the book launch of Love Vintage written by Nicole Jenkins who owns Circa Vintage Clothing in Melbourne. Friday night also features a best dressed in vintage competition where you could win a $100 that is redeemable with any exhibitor at the show.

Saturdays show runs 9.30 - 4.30. The fun kicks off at 11 with a demonstration of vintage makeup techniques & hairstyles by Mistresses Christine and Kim from the Lindy Charm School for Girls. The Lindy Charm School will be offering to style your hair in vintage styles for just $25! (also on Sunday) Saturday also features a performance from "The Belles" - Andrews Sisters Style Singers and the Cavaclade and Darnell collection (also on Sunday) will both be on display!

At Sundays show (9.30 - 4.30) you can really get into the swing of things with a demonstration of swing dance from Swingtime Australia, a parade of vintage fashion and hats by Sandie Bizys Hats & Vintage. The Lindy Charm School are also offering a fab 2 hour workshop where you can learn vintage makeup and hairstyle techniques for $60, which included free admission to the show (pre-booking is essential as spaces are limited)

So with this great fun filled program and over 60 exhibitors for just $12 a ticket for one day or $20 for 2 days it really is a must see event! I hope everyone whose going has a great time - I'm not at all jealous, honest!

Have a fab vintage weekend dear readers ... x
