Vintage Glitz & Glamour in Chester

Chester is an antique and second-hand lovers’ paradise. There are second-hand shops around just about every corner, and antique shops abound. The antique jewellery shops are some of the most impressive I’ve ever seen, and they draw people from around the country.

The city also boasts a pretty substantial student population, and along with that has come some quirky, trendy vintage shops – of which I’m a regular snooper. I may not be at the cutting edge of fashion but I love to poke around and see what I can find. Check out Becnick’s Wonder Emporium when you’re in town.

Chester and old stuff just seem to go together.

I love old stuff and I love a market so when I heard that there was going to be a vintage market in Chester this past weekend I was pretty excited. Markets are the best place for travellers; they are treasure troves of culture and an amazing place to people watch.

Other then the inevitable crowds there is really nothing not to like.

Though the location was somewhat uninspiring (a city centre hotel banquet room) Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair did not disappoint and was filled to the brim with treasures galore. I even tried on a wedding dress, though it sadly didn’t fit. Those 50′s ladies were tiny!

  1. I love Chester too – luckily I live half an hour away and have fond memories of going down the Dee on the Princess Diana showboat. It’s so nice to spend a Saturday on the Rows!
