1 – Judys Affordable Vintage Fair | Visit site
This is probably one of the best organised events to go to if you are in the UK. Here you will find a huge amount of vintage from all era’s and you will also find re-worked and handmade (yippeee) items too.

This is a personal style blog of a californian gal’. She has a big passion for vintage and with her regular updates, she mixes high street with vintage perfectly. She also writes the blog for Modcloth.
3 – Beyond Retro.com | Visit site
Fab online (they do have real brick shops too!) place, jampacked with vintage goodies! Prices for every pocket and every taste for men and women.
4 – Modculture.com | Visit site
One of my favourite places to pop by. There is some really great photos on here. Even if you aren’t a huge Mod fan, there is still lots to look at.
5 – Love Miss Daisy | Visit site
Another online place I like to shop. They carefully select ladies vintage clothing and the dress selection is always really well stocked with some real gems. I’d be surprised if you didn’t find something you liked in there!
6 – Taschen | Visit site
Yep, as in the book publishers. These guys (Benedikt Taschen and his gang) have released some fantastic books on photography, art, fashion, etc. You often see these books at really cheap prices; I recently saw a 1950’s inspired one for just a few pounds. But if you have a £1000 (we can dream) then this Linda McCartney one looks to have some beautiful early days Beatles photos.
7 – Queens of Vintage | Visit site
I recently got recommended this site and its basically what it says on the box, ‘A Daily Global Glossy for Vintage Lovers’. Be careful though, you could spend hours on there!
8 – V&A Make your own vintage dress | Visit site
I think one of the nicest things we can do is make our own clothes using vintage patterns. This way, you can tailor an item to fit you perfectly. I found this V&A Museum FREE 1950’s dress pattern download over a year ago. You can pay just a few pounds for an original vintage pattern and Etsy is one of the best places out there to buy them. There are some great books out there to help you with dressmaking but I’d say just give it a go!

So if you do decide to have a go at making your own, you will obviously need the vintage fabric! To me this is like a little slice of heaven. Once you start looking, you get overwhelmed with the choice but its just so nice to be able to pick exactly what you want!

Lastly is my own site, it has only just launched. Here you will find a unique selection of Bow Ties handmade from vintage fabrics. Enjoy :)
