Tuesday Treats – Vintage Fashion Accessories and Christmas Gifts

I have great fun shopping for vintage and second hand goodies for the ethical outfit competition goody bags. So much so that I have decided to try and buy as many vintage Christmas gifts as possible this year. Over the last few years, I have been feeling that Christmas has just been turning into a mad consumer fest. So this year in the interests of sustainability, I am attempting to have a ‘Vintage and Handmade Christmas’.

This does of course take a little more time than buying the usual load of Christmas stuff with Mr Style Eyes threatening to get the Christmas CD out already, I thought it was high time I got on with some Christmas shopping or at least research.

As clothing is difficult to buy for other people I really like buying accessories.

 1950’s Black Floral Handbag on Rock My Vintage – £50


Glass bead necklace – Oxfam – £7.99

Vintage Jaeger Silk Scarf – Oxfam – £34.99 

Vintage 60’s crochet cape – Etsy – £22.35 (plus postage from US)

Vintage Renewal Fluffy Beret – Urban Outfitters – £15

Rokit Recycled Olive & Grey Tipped Faux Fur Collar – £25

Vintage 1920’s Embroidered Silk Shawl – Devoted to Vintage – reduced to £30

Vintage 1950’s Brooch – Devoted to Vintage – £12

If you prefer to shop for Christmas presents in person, don’t miss out on the last Vintage Fashion Fair London before Christmas on 20th November. You will find a great range of vintage accessories with price from £5 upwards. There are some free tickets available from the website www.vintagefashionfairlondon.co.uk.

More vintage Christmas goodies next week. Have you started on your Christmas shopping yet?

With warmest wishes

  1. I prefer buying accessories when it comes to vintage…mostly because you don’t need to worry too much about lingering ‘vintage’ smells! LOVE the scarf.
