This year, Cowboy and I are going to get there at 10am sharp, and shop til we drop (even though its supposed to rain).
I'm hoping to pick up a nice red bakelite belt buckle, some buttons to match my Cherry Cardigan and possibly a black beaded cardigan (if its a good price).

I know I said I was going to make a dress, but I found the perfect 50s dream dress on Etsy a few months back and have been saving it just for the Fair. I'm not going to post photos yet, but lets just say black and pink textured taffeta, pockets, and a massive circle skirt....

From the website:

The Fifties Fair is the ultimate celebration of all things 1950s, set in the grounds of Rose Seidler House – Harry Seidler’s first Australian commission (1948–50).

This year’s entertainment includes live music that will inspire you to jive and rock‘n’roll along side our rockabilly dancers, a 50s DJ, live vintage styled mannequins, vehicle displays and kids’ activities. Come dressed in your best 50s threads for a chance to win a prize in the fabulous Fifties fair fashion awards. Specialist collectors and dealers will be selling 50's furniture, clothes, kitchenware, records and much more. Take the opportunity to tour Rose Seidler House which boasts one of Australia's most important post-war design collections.

A free shuttle bus will operate between Turramurra train station and Rose Seidler House for the duration of the event.

Ohh maybe the hubby and I will spot you there!

I also found a gorgeous dress on etsy 50s circle skirted black with little green pink and white daisies but unfortunately due to my own stupidity I bought the coat the the seller had photographed together with the dress instead of the actual dress.

Ahh well theres always next year (I hope except for I've heard rumors this is the last year!) x

Wha??? Rumours! I hope they are untrue! :(

Damn about your dress - I hate when that happens. I bought a hat off Etsy 4 weeks ago to wear with my dress but it still hasnt turned up, I think it might be too late :(...

But come say hi if you see me, and i'll look out for you too ;)
