The Handmade & Found calendar

One of the things I LOVE about the start of the year is that I haven't missed anything yet!

Here are some of the secondhand sales/vintage sales and other thrift events I am planning on going to over the next few months:

Sunday 13th January 2013- Stuff for Free event- Acton-  read more on this here

Friday 18th January 2013- Bric-a-brac sale -Barnes- I have never been to this one so will be interesting to check it out

Sunday 3rd February 2013- Chiswick Carboot sale- Chiswick- by far the best boot sale EVER (although not always super-cheap.

Sunday 3rd February 2013-Pop-up Vintage- Islington- always a good, well organised sale with lots of affordable pieces.

Saturday 23rd/Sunday 24th Feb 2013- The Vintage Kilo Sale- Hackney- Pick a kilo of vintage clothing for £15!

Sunday 30th March 2013- Vintazia Vintage Market- Kew- A vintage sale where I live!  It will be heaven :-)

Are there any events that you know of that I have missed in West/Central London?  Do pop a comment below!

If you are planning on going to any of these events too, let me know.  We can have scones and cakes and compare purchases.

  1. Hi Alice, Do you know any markets where you can pick up material squares or off cuts from, just looking for bits & bobs for future inspiration :)

  2. Car boot sales are good for that- you would need to have a rummage. xx
