Judy's have had my heart since I was at University up in Lincoln, and apart from their regular Vintage Fair's, they also hold a number of Kilo Sales up and down the country which are fab! My sister and I headed to the Brixton fair last week as it's not far from us, and it didn't disappoint! For me, Vintage buying falls into two categories, the quickies, and the investment's. The 'quickies' would be the type of stuff I get from the £1 Vintage sales which are generally full of tat, require a discerning eye and a lot of patience. The 'investment's' are the vintage pieces that are a little bit pricier but much better quality! The kilo sale fell into the investments category in that it was £15 for a kilo (which is about one big coat, or four smaller items like dresses / blouses). My goal is to own a coat in every colour of the rainbow, so i decided to go for the above Jaeger Princess coat. The shape, style and quality of it is what made me choose it,
My biggest tip? Get there early! And come without baggage (literally!) or you'll find it hard to rummage through the various rails and buckets. My sister and I arrived about an hour and a half before closing and there were some cool bits and pieces but not as much as there would have been had we arrived at the opening. All in all it's a good middle ground for the affordable vintage loving maven's out there. It's not quite as scary as the £1 Vintage sales, and not as expensive as buying from a Vintage shop, so definitely worth a visit!
