Fifties Fair Day

How nice was the weather on the weekend???
So beautiful, perfect to hang out with friends at the Fifties Fair.


And eat fairy floss.


And pose with your hot friends in front of their hot car.




Only minimal sunburn too (thank goodness for the umbrella). Dress came out really well, and i'd definately use the pattern again. I'll have to get the Cowboi to take a better photo.
Fair Day Haul included new (vintage) white gloves, new pink vintage-style glasses, red chiffon scarf and the best diamante 50's brooch.
Still hunting for some vintage dotty scarves and a nice pair of vintage cats eye glasses - the prices at the Fair were crazy ($130? really?).

What did get to me is the stall holders and price gouging. Selling a 70's brown vest (missing a button and stained) for $75 - wha? Just because its the Fifties Fair doesnt mean people are going to pay whatever you ask. There is too much competition to be selling things at those prices. I've seen the prices get higher and higher every year, and while the quality is getting better too there are definitley sellers who bank on people not knowing what things are worth. 
Kudos to the stall holder selling cute vintage hats for between $20 and $70. You made it worthwhile to come! (too bad none of your hats suited me, but I had fun trying them all on hehe).
