Just another vintage market; 31st July

Tucked up in the sleepy corner of the North West, a rarity has occurred... Early august saw the one year celebration of Chester's own vintage market.

Just another vintage market opened it's doors to celebrate one year of their successful monthly market's in Chester, with a day of festivities and fashion at Cruise nightclub.

Vintage style has been in abundance lately; with not just a plethora of vintage inspired treats on the high street, but a growing boom in vintage fashion for those after a unique piece of history to add to their wardrobe. Whether it's a Mary Quant inspired 60's frock that lures you in, or a stunning peter pan collar dress; it seems that vintage attire is even easier to get your hands on.

On this busy Saturday in the city center, Just another vintage market was a breath of fresh air.

The two floors at Cruise held both the perfect opportunity for a brief social outing on the lower floor's bar; where throughout the day you catch a few bands; to an abundance of stalls across the 2nd floor.

Bursting to the brim with a wide range of stalls, you could find plenty of vintage treats from stunning attire, accessories, & even home ware from a wide range of both local vintage boutiques and web shops. Nestled amongst a selection of designers from darling vintage inspired bags and totes; to the quirky button jewellery of Laura loves boutique. An alternative shopping experience to the usual hustle & bustle of Chester's high street.

The icing on the cake was topped off with a vintage tea party toast, personal stylists to help your hone your own vintage style, & photographers around the venue. Even the darling selection of cakes and knitted treats helped kick the day off with style too.

Here's hoping that this isn't the last full day event for Utility's vintage market with an already regular monthly market on, it certainly is an event to put Chester on the map for a vintage hot spot in the North west.
