North London Mums go in search of Vintage shopping!

As you know North London Mums do love a bit of vintage and we often feature vintage markets in our weekly listings. We thought we are well overdue for a proper round up of vintage events- so here's our list of hot vintage hangouts in and around North London.

The North London Vintage Market is a regular feature in our listings. Events take place once a month and the next one is on 1 June 2013. It takes place from 10 to 4 at St Mary's Parish Hall Cranley Gardens / Park Road, Crouch End N10. Here you can find clothing, jewellery and accessories as well as a range of collectables, homewares, curiosities.

We also love the Vintage Gift and Tea Party, at the Boogaloo, Highgate which takes place regularly. Selling a variety of arts, crafts and vintage, with a vintage tea party offering gorgeous home made cupcakes and fabulous live music.

Rag and Bow is the exciting roaming vintage store which sells quality, affordable 1950’s-1990’s women’s clothing & accessories and which regularly sets up shop at our old haunt The Paradise in Kensal Rise.  Find out more abut event dates here.

Vintage Fashion London runs a Vintage Fashion Fair, and the next one is 16  June in at Cecil Sharp House Primrose Hill. Spend a leisurely Sunday browsing and buying from the many stalls including wearable vintage pieces at affordable prices and also designer labels if you are looking for something extra special. There is a selection of delicious home made food and refreshments at very reasonable prices.

There is also a new vintage home and interiors fair from Vintage Fashion London  on 29 April 2012, 11 to 5pm also at Cecil Sharp House. This new fair is for lovers of shabby chic and vintage charm. You will be able to find selections of vintage furniture, some painted and restored, tableware, glassware, lamps, mirrors, linens, textiles, curtains, eiderdowns and garden items.  Also trinkets, treasures and unique gifts.

If you fancy travelling north, there is the wonderful sounding Vintage Home Show  in Manchester11 am- 4pm (£3). The show promises top quality Mid-Century Designed Furniture, Ceramics, Textiles, Lighting & Art alongside Mass Market Retro & Kitsch every household classics and iconic items from the 1930's-1970's. Frankly, we love the flyer!
There is a regular Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair  and the next one is on the 23 June. This is open to the public from 11 to 4m at a cost of £4. The Fair offers a selection of beautiful vintage clothes, shoes, handbags, hats,gloves, textiles & jewellery from the 1800s-1980s. Without costing the earth both financially and environmentally. Glamour Magazine described it as "A treasure trove of quality gifts or that perfect little number for the festive season'

We've also stumbled on the Vintage Guide to London which is a London City Guide for Vintage Lovers- covering the arts, food and drink, history, trends and of course places to shop. Definitely worthwhile checking it out.

We are only scratching the surface here and would love to hear more about your favourite vintage haunts! Do let us know!
