Funk Fair – Edinburgh

I attended Funk Fair, Edinburgh before Christmas. I met some lovely creative people and snapped up some vintage goodies.

The fair presented a variety of different stands displaying vintage trinkets, clothing and accessories. Some of the designers were present and busy making at their stalls – I found this inspiring and the creations more authentic.
I chatted with the people from mixing fibres who were busy making at their stand. They offer workshops and classes from £12 upwards covering a whole range of felt making techniques.
There was Eco cards, cushions and shopper bags from Susie Maroon (previously featured in Marie Claire). There was work from Fashion Designer Iona Crawford which is also stocked in Concrete Wardrobe, Edinburgh. I bought a beautiful floral dress from RowanJoy a brand stocked in Godiva Boutique, Edinburgh – where she offered a made to measure consultancy service.
The vintage stalls also hosted hidden fashion treasures including an original Biba suit! I have uploaded some pictures of the day.
