I wrote about the semi annual vintage & record fair in Utrecht a few times now. And every time, I get a lot of nice comments! And for those, I have some good news; there’s a new one coming up on April 11 and 12! I already went to the fair 3 times and I will be going again this time. And this time, I will be doing a special challenge! But more about that later. The fair is the biggest vintage event of Europe and it takes places every 6 months in the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht, The Netherlands. And it’s HUGE! Stands for as far as your eyes can see, and further!
The Vintage Fair
What I like about this fair is that there are vintage items from so many different categories. You can find vintage hats, bags, jewelry and evening gloves, but also tin vintage advertising posters and furniture. Next to vintage and vinyl records, you can also find anything collective at this fair, as the vintage & recordfair are part of the International Collectors Fair. Please continue reading to find out what kind of challenge I will be doing at the fair!
Vintage Fair Challenge
The fair asked me to think of a challenge to do at the fair, so I came up with the Vintage Fair Challenge! This means that I will be going to put together 2 vintage style outfits around 2 LBD’s at a budget of €150, with hats, shoes, accessories and everything that I find at the fair. On saturday April 11, I will be doing the challenge and on that day, I will also report on the fair’s Facebook page. So, if you would like to follow me on that day, you can like that page! Next to that, I will also report about the challenge on my own Instagram and Twitter pages.
After the fair, I will make a post about how the challenge went and I will show the end result! In that post, you will also be able to vote for your favorite outfit and get a chance to win an item from that outfit! Isn’t that fun?!
