Dress up and get down to the best vintage fair in town
What goes around comes around and the Adelaide Vintage Expo is back once again on Saturday, October 25 and Sunday, October 26, 2014 from 10 am until 5 pm at the Norwood Concert Hall.



The Adelaide Vintage Expo has found a cosy home for itself within the Adelaide Fashion Festival, an annual celebration of South Australian style and designers. The vintage expo is a new addition to the fashion festival this year, but it's certainly not new to Adelaide's festival or fashion scene.

Now in its third year, the Adelaide Vintage Expo is an event in its own right and will be a highlight on the last weekend of the Adelaide Fashion Festival, which starts on Friday, October 17 and runs until Sunday, October 26, 2014.

Previously the vintage expo has been held at large venues, such as the Adelaide Showground in 2012 and the Adelaide Convention Centre in 2013, where the weekend long event attracted huge crowds of vintage aficionados, fashionistas, shopaholics, and others just looking for a fun day out.

With much more character than the previous venues and elegant architecture representative of the early 1900s, the concert hall on the corner of George Street and The Parade at Norwood seems a much more comfortable and appropriate fit for an exhibition that pays homage to yesteryear.

While the last expo had a 'carousel bazaar' theme, there will be no circus acts this time around; the focus is firmly set on fashion and shopping. There will be more than 30 stalls from some of Australia's best vintage retailers exhibiting styles and wares from the glamorous 1920s all the way through to the outrageous 1990s.

There will, of course, be many clothing stalls to rummage through, but also lots of jewellery, accessories, antiques, homeware, and plenty of other vintage treasures to be discovered. When the shopping bags get too heavy and it's time for a break, there are food and drink stalls at the venue too.

As well as an exciting shopping experience, the expo will have plenty of activities to keep you entertained. For some vintage style inspiration, daily fashion parades and workshops have been scheduled. Some such workshops involve dressmaking, crochet, knitting, millinery, leather tooling, etiquette, and make up. If you've ever wanted to learn how to sew a circle skirt, now is your chance.

Another encouraging alteration to this year's expo is an admittance fee of only $5 with tickets available to purchase online (plus booking fee) or at the door on the day. After a $7 entry fee for the first expo, the price then escalated to $15 last year, but it will be an all-time low this year. This is great news because $10 can go a long way in the world of vintage, so you'll have some extra cash to splash around at the stalls.

It only happens once a year, so dress up and get down to the biggest and best vintage fair in town. Visit the Adelaide Fashion Festival website for all the details and follow the Adelaide Vintage Expo Facebook page for up-to-date information.
