All the fun of the fair

We found ourselves at Firle Vintage Fair last week, mainly to watch The Chap magazine’s annual Chap Olympics, a celebration of silly games and sporting ineptitude perpetrated by well-dressed vintage enthusiasts. It’s usually held in London but this time had decamped to the southwestwards. The fair itself turned out to be mostly about retail, with endless stalls selling vintage clothing, furniture and homewares, vintage-inspired fashions, “upcycled” goods, plus some performances—including by our good friends and Candlelight regulars the Gatsby Girls. There was also a vintage funfair and an entire field was given over to vintage vehicles. More photos on our Flickr account, with a separate album for the cars here.
