A self-confessed vintage addict myself, I can hardly contain my excitement when the time comes for another fashion packed vintage fair to grace Newcastle with its presence. So its great news for the keen vintage hunters among us and of course, any vintage newbies who are desperate to check out what its all about, that Newcastle Does Vintage returns this Saturday 21st February. A firm favourite on the vintage scene in Newcastle, this weekend the fair celebrates its grand opening at the new location of Newcastle Civic Centre Banqueting Suite, and with good reason, everyone is pretty excited about it. Newcastle Does Vintage brings the whole package, immersing visitors in the full-on, authentic vintage experience the moment you step across the threshold. Expect an abundance of vintage clothing and accessory stalls, all of which are hand-picked and ran by some of the most knowledgeable and experienced in the business, and the bit we all wanted to know, excellent quality at affordable prices. Whether you’re looking for that one exceptional item or are keeping an open-mind as you rummage, there really is no thrill like it.

If you can manage to tear yourself away from the rails, get involved in a vintage inspired workshop or pre-book yourself in for a makeover with Hepkat Kitten Vintage Hairstyling, who promises to have you looking and feeling like your inner vintage goddess. If you’re all shopped out or need to refuel before round two, relax with a cup of tea and a cupcake in the gorgeous tearooms, all while taking in the dynamic atmosphere and tapping your foot to some live music, of course.

Newcastle Does Vintage fair takes place at the Civic Centre Banqueting Suite, Saturday 21st February. Entry costs £2, or £1 with a Britain Does Vintage Card.
