Visually engaging merchandising, continually on-trend stock and affordable prices have made this monthly vintage sale a welcome fixture on West London’s fashion calendar, with folks flocking from miles away to frock-hunt here.
Stylish, eco and thrifty – we love Hazel Holtham’s spectacular selection of secondhand treasures.
Named one of the key players of the current thriving vintage scene by BBC Homes & Antiques magazine, her jamboree is back upstairs at the hip pub and restaurant this Saturday.
Visitors have included Florence + the Machine’s flame-haired star who left a recent event clutching three bags full of vintage bargains. Endorsed by influential fashion blogger, Susie ‘Style Bubble‘ Lau, the secret is well and truly out…
Get there early as founder Hazel has been travelling the UK and beyond, hand-selecting items for this very fashion and shopping event. The lovely purveyor of vintage chic herself will of course be on hand on the day to offer help and style advice. (Little wonder Take That’s Jason Orange recent stopped Hazel in Portobello to ask where she got her fabulous dress. We’re assuming it was just an excuse to chat to the pretty lady rather than an inquiry for his own wardrobe.)
