Vintage At The Dome

Vintage At The Dome is exactly what it says on the tin. A vintage fair hosted by the fabulous Vintage Suitcase in the historic Devonshire Dome.

I'm lucky enough to live down the road from Buxton so thought I'd pop along for an hour. Two and half hours later I had to tear myself away!

The Devonshire Dome is one of the worlds largest unsupported domes and The Vintage Suitcase crammed it full of gorgeous vintage delights.  There was so much to see and do.  One of the things I love about vintage fairs is the atmosphere.  There are so many friendly traders I could have chatted with them all day!  As well as lots of lovely clothes and homeware from bygone eras there were also many new handcrafted designs made from vintage materials.  There was even a chance to get your hair and make up styled by the awesome  Miss Whittington's Vintage Beauty Parlour and Sassy's Vintage Beauty Parlour

One of my favourite stalls that I need to give a special mention to is Molly Felicity Designs She creates personalised bunting using a photo of your choice. So, for example, you could have your baby's face printed onto one flag and then add to it each year as your child gets older!  This is such a great idea. Not only does it look nice hanging in the nursery but it also makes for a special keepsake. 

Although I could rabbit on all day about the wonderful delights I found, I'll let the pictures do the talking.
