I always like the mix of 'looks' at the Markets - pure vintage, pinup, rockabilly/greaser, punk and everything in between. Its nice to see a lot of people dressed up in their favourite outfits.
The main reason we went along was to prowl through my favourite seller's fabric stash (photos further down) and to have to have a dance. Sydney dancers are pretty lucky - we never have to wait long for a band or a rockabilly DJ to be playing somewhere!

I only wish that I remembered to have outfit photos taken BEFORE dancing, so please excuse my red cheeks.
Jeans - Freddies 1940s Work Jeans
Shoes - Aris Allen saddle shoes
Bag - 1940s phone cord, Facebook swap
Jumper - handknitted, by me
Jacket - 49er, SnootieSeconds on Etsy
Brooch - 1940s novelty ice tongs, Etsy
And what did I come home with?
A massive 1950s barkcloth curtain (already gracing my bedroom) and four dress-sized pieces of 1940s rayons (all from RetroStation).

Be nice to your vintage dealers, and they'll be nice to you!
