Mid Century Market

On the last sunny Sunday of the year (practically) I got my arse on up to Cecil Sharp House in Camden for a lazy afternoon of rummaging at the Mid Century Market - run by my dear friend Bettina Scarlett.

With repro brands like Splendette, Lady K Loves and Bow and Crossbones and vintage stores such as Hottie's Vintage, Vera Mode Vintage and Accessories of Old (amongst others), the market specialises in Mid Century/1950's styled goods only. This makes it London's first and only 1950's fair!

The September fair was the first one I've managed to get down to so far (Working Sundays is awful for events) after sadly missing the corker of a Christmas Far last year. However, this MCM instalment did not disappoint, set in the beautiful Grade II listed building, DJs played an assortment of rock'n'roll whilst you rummaged around finding your treasures. There was plenty of clothing, both vintage and repro - and a little bit for the guys, too! As well as stalls full of home and barware and a handful of lucite sparkles.

Bow and Crossbones
Personally I wasn't in search of much, but still managed to come away with some Splendette bangles, a bunch of gorgeous vintage geometric buttons from Accessories of Old, a pair of vintage pinking shears (that work better than my modern pair) and the cutest vintage chilli necklace - not a bad haul for someone who wasn't planning on buying!

I was so busy on the day rummaging through and socialising that I took so few pictures! Luckily Street Style Carousel was on hand - do check out the Mid Century Market's album of photos from the event on Facebook to see those.

And just in case you feel you've missed out?
Bettina has just announced that the next Mid Century Market is being held at the Cecil Sharp House again on Sunday 13th December!
Stall holders are yet to be confirmed, but for £3 entry you'll be a fool to miss it! Keep an eye on it on Facebook!
