What can we expect at the Guildhall on the 7th?
Shoppers can take delight in some of the UK’s best vintage traders bringing items from the 1940s right through to the 1990s. Lou Lou’s Fair offers vintage clothing and accessories, collectables, home-wares, nic-nacs, jewellery and much, much more. We do have stalls selling small items of homeware and furniture, things you can easily carry away with you on the day!
There really is something for every avid vintage fan at our fairs to enjoy.
We are very proud winners of ‘UK’s Best Vintage Fair’ 2013 and 2014!
As well as the 40+ stalls, visitors can also enjoy a quiet moment with a cuppa and gorgeous cakes served on vintage china at the Vintage Tea Party while the Vintage Salon will be open to pamper and preen you into your favourite vintage icons.
The full vintage experience!
How did it all start?
Based in Sheffield, Lou Lou set up the vintage fair in September 2008. Over time and by popular demand, the fair grew and the list of cities we visited became longer. We now take the Vintage Fair to over 40 towns and cities across the country (and we’re still growing!)
It will be our first time in Portsmouth on Sunday 7th September so we are very excited! We had been looking to visit Portsmouth for some time and after many hours of research to find the best venue possible, we decided on the beautiful Guildhall. With its history and décor we think it will really add to the days atmosphere.
What is it about Vintage that appeals to you, and why do you think it has become so popular – almost mainstream now?
Everything about vintage appeals to us at Lou Lou’s! The quality, the nostalgia, the history of each item, even the joy of coming across a rare piece. People who love vintage are always looking for something new and unique to add to their wardrobe and that is why we enjoy finding the best traders and putting them in one place to create this fantastic one stop shop. We’d like to think vintage is gradually becoming more mainstream now because people want that individual style and great quality that can be found with vintage clothing.
Lou Lou’s Vintage fair takes place at Portsmouth Guildhall on Sunday 7th September between 11 am and 4 pm, entry is £2 (under 12s free). The wonderful ladies from Vintage Hair Lounge will be styling hair and make up in their pop up beauty salon. For appointments and enquiries, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find up to date information on the facebook page and also on Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair website.
