Preloved's Vintage Fair took place in the heart of Manchester's vintage home - The Northern Quarter - at the Night&Day Cafe. I went with my friend Magdalena, who blogs at Lullaby for Pies. We were greeted with a glass of champagne and a goodie bag on arrival; the night was off to a good start. Wandering around there were stalls selling retro clothing, trinkets and jewellery, as well as vinyl records and vintage books. You could get your hair and makeup done in a Vintage style. There were also handmade bits for sale such as cushions and jam, and a stall with all proceeds going to Oxfam.
I wore Zara jeans, H&M boots, an old H&M shirt and a vintage cardigan, bag and scarf.  
From Love Spreads I bought a delicious peach and lemon compote, which I'm looking forward to pairing with some greek yoghurt and granola. I also bought a navy and white polka dot blouse, which looks adorable tucked into a skirt or undone with jeans and a cami. Inside my goodie bag was some raspberry, lime and ginger pickle from Love Spreads, some soap and bath salts, as well a tub of Matt and Ben's Proper Fudge which is delicious. A big thank you to Preloved for inviting us!
