Taking in a vintage tour of the North West : Decorative Fairs Liverpool : 30th May 2015.

I couldn't think of a grander setting for the next stop off on my vintage tour of the North West, Liverpool's St George's Hall is one of the cities finest buildings, with it's magnificent column draped fronting that's been the setting of many a vintage inspired photo, leading onto the beautiful decor that awaits you inside - Decorative fairs have certainly picked the perfect building to hold their latest Liverpool fair.

A fair that's been on my calendar for quite some time, I couldn't pass up on the opportunity to pursue some lovely vintage finds inside the grand settings of St George's Hall, and neither could Liverpool's keen vintage shoppers, as a flurry of glamorously dressed shoppers stopped by for an afternoon of shopping.

The first thing that hits you is the beautiful architecture and decor inside the hall, with rows up rows of vintage finds laid out amongst the grand marbled columns and swooping chandeliers. There was certainly plenty to feast your eyes upon, with a vast selection of stalls to shop from, whatever your vintage tastes. Whether it was the perfect vintage accessories to complete your look, some unique vintage haberdashery supplies, or a grand vintage gown that took your fancy, there was a great mix of stalls that were hand picked by Decorative Fairs, making for a wonderful mix of vintage finds to shop from.



You really need to walk around the fair at least a few times, as some great finds could easily pass you by, and with this many stalls to shop from, it's easy to get distracted by some pretty lucite handbags or a stunning pair of vintage Louboutin heels (I did have to drag myself from cooing over them at least several times..). Any keen vintage hunter certainly needs to take the time to pursue the stalls, try those pretty finds on, and have a good shop, as I spotted some beautiful costume jewellery to snap up on my second walk around, finding some beautiful beaded necklaces and brooches to add to my vast growing collection of vintage pieces.

To round the day off there was a vintage cafe nestled in a lavish room at the side of the hall where you could take in a spot of cake with a cuppa whilst you took a break from all that shopping, making for a good pit stop to put your feet up before pursuing the aisles another time to spot those elusive vintage finds.

A great fair to visit if it's some lucrative designer vintage finds, unique pieces of costume jewellery, or some gorgeous vintage outfits that you're after. With a great mixture of vintage and period pieces across the stalls, not to mention a great opportunity to see inside the hall and admire it's beautiful decor.
