Vintage & Retro Fair: Horsham

// The Sussex Love Bug outside the event - I want this car! Unfortunately it wasn't for sale.. // 
I live in the very cute little town of Horsham! 
As you can see above its full of character features and cute little buildings. 
Unfortunately, we don't have many clothes shops, literally just a Topshop, New Look, 
Dorothy Perkins along with a ton of coffee shops and restaurants. 
I tend to do my shopping in a mix of places as its limited to what I can find here! 
As you may have already noticed I'm a huge lover of all things vintage 
and love finding a good bargain wherever I can! 
So when I found out a Vintage & Retro Fair was making its way over 
to us in wee little Horsham.. I knew I had to go! 
So on Sunday I headed over, dragging Alex along with me who lovingly agreed to be my
 shopping caddy for the next two hours! 
// All the stalls looked amazing and were beautifully presented drawing 
my keen eye in, they all had such cute little touches and unique bargains on offer! // 
// Fur coats galore! //
// Cute little teacups, clocks, empty glasswear bottles, ornaments.. //
// Suitcases! I was desperate to buy one but couldn't justify the spending or where I would put it, I will continue to keep my eye out - especially for when decorating my new bedroom! //
// Cute tealights.. I couldn't resist and bought one of these - only £1! // 
// Handmade cushions & christmas decorations //  
// A range of vintage clothes // 
// Quirky jewellery stalls! // 

My Purchases
I'd had a busy weekend at work and managed to make a lot of money in tips so thought I'd treat myself to a few cute little bits.. 
Here's what I got my mitts on.. all together I spent £20 and was so happy with everything I found :)
// Tealight & Candle Holder: £1 // 
// Assortment of Hand-painted Pegs: £2 // 
// Cup and Saucer: £6 //
// Glass Bottle: £2 // 
// Vintage Check Oversized Shirt: £3 // 
// Jumpsuit with Stirrups: £6 //


Super happy with all my finds!
This event was held by Belles Events they hold a range of vintage & retro fairs around the South. 
I see they do regular ones in Brighton as well so I definitely am going to head over to one of these next time!

I hope you like my finds :)
