[Sydney] Fifties Fair

Oh I wish I were in Sydney this weekend! It’s time for the annual Fifties Fair at Rose Seidler House. I used to go when I lived in Sydney but these days it’s a bit harder – perhaps next year? It’s a lot of fun and highly recommended as one of the best things on the vintage calendar.

From the website:

Enjoy live rockabilly, jump blues, lounge jazz and swing music, dancing demonstrations, vehicle displays and kids activities set against the backdrop of the iconic Rose Seidler House. Come dressed in your best 50s threads for a chance to win a prize in the famous Fifties Fair fashion awards.

Specialist collectors and dealers will sell fabulous 50s pieces including household gadgets, toys, jewellery, knick-knacks, books, clothing and furniture.

Where: Rose Seidler House, Wahroonga – shuttle buses are running from Turramurra train station.
When: Sunday August 23rd, 10am to 5pm.
