Blogtoberfest Day 12 – Gettin’ ready for the fair…

Next weekend it’s the Vintage Clothing, Jewellery and Textiles Fair at Canterbury Racecourse in Sydney, organised by the lovely Janel Morrissey. More than 60 exhibitors will be there selling all kinds of vintage fashion goodies, and of course we’ll be there selling vintage buttons and buckles. Here’s some of our wares:

1920’s Art Deco celluloid buttons

Beautiful bakelite buckles and dress clips

More lovely buckles and clasps

Even more buckles, plus some cards of 1930s buttons, AND there’s a whole lot more!

It’s a great day out, with vintage fashion parades, swing dancing, hairstyle and makeup a la 1940’s (Victory rolls, girls!), prizes for best dressed in vintage,  and a demonstration of bobbin lace making by my friend Sumedha. So if you’re in the area, why not pop in – don’t forget to say hi. Our shop is called the Button Bower and we’ll be somewhere near the stage!

Blogtoberfest brought to you by Big Cat’s Emporium!

  1. the whole idea of that fair kind of gives me palpitations. I wonder if i could afford to fly to Sydney just for the weekend? Surely I could.

  2. Oh! Thanks for the pointer to the vintage show! I hadn’t heard about it. Hopefully I can sneak over on Friday or Saturday to take a peek.

    I also love your science as art links – it appeals to my inner nerd!

  3. Oh, I wish we had something like this in Canada. Look at all those buttons, I think im in love 🙂
    Cheers Kyla
