It's that time of year again! 

We're heading off to East London on Saturday for the Wanstead Vintage Fashion & Brocante Fair. Celebrating its third anniversary, the event keeps going from strength to strength and is well-known as the go-to for genuine vintage wares. 

I've got a few things on my shopping list and I'm looking forward to seeing Graham Leonard, of Green Parrot Collectables, and his display of vintage perfume bottles. He's at the fair for the first time and he has a fantastic collection of flacons and factices, plus an encyclopedic knowledge of the history of the bottles and fragrances. I'll post a piece on him shortly, as I had the pleasure of visiting him at his HQ with Cary Whitley, who organises the Wanstead Vintage Fashion & Brocante Fair. I thought I had a lot of perfume bottles, until I saw Graham's line-up, not to mention his wife's collection of miniature perfume bottles...  

If you haven't been to the fair before, then here are a few image to wet your appetite from the this Spring's show. Hopefully see you there...
