Maldon Antiques Fair with lots of vintage clothing and haberdashery.

From the in-box:

The Maldon antique and collectables fair is on again this year. We had so much fun last year we are doing it all again. With one notable difference, we have doubled in size from 32 stalls last year to approximately 70 this year. We will be graced by the presence of [costumer] Julie Nixon again, only this time she will have 5 other ladies in the progress hall with her, giving the fair a real textile and fashion accent. The hall with have as well as Julie’s vintage clothing, hand made lace, antique and vintage haberdashery supplies, buttons, hooks and eyes, hats, and gloves etc. plus more vintage fashion and fashion accessories on the main venue at the football ground. We will have 30 garage sales throughout town mainly on the Saturday.

I went on the Sunday last year and found lots of lovely things, especially my favourite – cotton ’50s printed dresses. Here’s one of my favourites – can you see the tentacles?
