Yesterday I had the best day out I've had in a while - Vintage-orama hit Wellington and so did Helga Von Trollop and G! So Ria and I met up with them, along with Helga's friend Brenda.

First stop was brunch at Duke Carvell's - I had the vegetarian baked eggs and they were amazing.

Then we headed off to Vintage-orama - via the Wellington Fringe Market and a jumble sale at Thistle Hall.

Yes! This is a Hello Kitty Skirt and yes it is my latest sewing creation!
Then it was finally time to hit up the vintage-orama!

Here was our posse for the day - minus G of course - he's our photographer (a pretty fabulous one too!)
I met up with my friend Joy at the fair - wearing a fabulous frock and selling her amazing cushions.
I thought that I would share a shot of the school hall where the event was held, because it was rather lovely.
Here's a final shot of our group before we parted ways for the day.
Ria and I decided to stay on at the market a little bit longer and check out the vintage patterns for sale.

Also - we had to have a cup of tea and some treats before we left for the day!
So what pretties did I buy at the fair? First up is one of "Miss La Belle's Hair Pretties"

I also bought this cute headband from The Electric Honeys - I just have to work out how to wear it now!

Finally I bought a few patterns (of course I did!).

So that was my day this Saturday - its was super fun, if Vintage-orama is on next year I will be keen to go for sure. I really hope it will be an annual event.
