Love Vintage | Sydney Vintage Clothing, Jewellery & Textiles Show 2011

The Love Vintage Sydney Vintage Clothing, Jewellery and Textiles Show is back on again. I've been to this show over the last few years and if definitely one of all my favourite festivals and shows that I attend. I am great admirer of antiques and vintage fashion items. I adore anything with a story and I get really excited when I find something beautiful and that is virtually unique or something I may never see again.

Held twice a year in Sydney in April and October the show features over 60 exhibitors from all over Australia, selling vintage and antique clothing and accessories, antique and vintage jewellery, linen, lace and textiles and small collectables. The show will also feature a presentation of vintage fashions, lectures by Guest Speakers, Swing Dancers, Demonstration of Vintage Makeup and Hairstyle Techniques and other fabulous entertainment
