The Cambria Vintage Market

Today I went to see Ruth, the print designer I work with, at the vintage fair she was showing at. Hidden in the heart of Camberwell, The Cambria Vintage Market had a selection of exhibitors showing vintage clothes, jewellery and accessories. She had a great range of individually selected vintage pieces spread carefully across a well decorated table. It was hard to choose but I bought a beautiful old broach for the back of the 1950’s dress I recently purchased from the Anita’s Vintage fair and also a little bow necklace. I’ve attached pic’s of these below.

However, my find of the day was a stunning original 1940’s beaded dress. In 100% burgundy, wine coloured silk it had long, slightly ballooned sleeves with a half pleated skirt that came just above the knee. The high neckline and polka dot style graduated beading on the body made it look modern. I think this has to be my favourite dress I’ve ever bought! Unfortunately the dress is getting posted to my home address and my mum is wrapping it for me for Christmas so pic’s to follow after Christmas.
