Jupiters Casino here on the Gold Coast is hosting the Rotary Antiques Fair once again and Sarah and I headed along for a lovely day of looking at pretty thing.

There were lots of lovely treasures to look at, but sadly there was very, limited vintage clothing. I however spot several vintage children’s pieces I adored. Sarah and I did pass by one dealers site where I picked up some vintage baby booties and said to her:

“Aren’t they the sweetest?”

At 10 months old when I placed them back down on the table her response was to cry. Perhaps it’s a sign that I have mini me vintage loving little lady on my hands.

This vendor had heaps of vintage buttons (these are just some of them) and some came home with me. Some may even make their way into some of my clutch hand bag designs.

Needle point brooches anyone?

A small selection of baby and children’s clothing. What is there not to love about little peoples vintage clothing?

This incredible 1950’s girls dress for had me transfixed, gosh I’d love to see my wee girl wear a piece like this.
Whilst at the fair we paid Kittys Vintage Kitsch a visit and I  made a point to pay a visit the art deco watch I have been longing for. 

Finally a stunning piece that caught my eye at the fair was this dealer who had a 1950’s Brexton Picnic Basket, which had never been used, and it was simply exquisite in my books. 

I wish I could have spent more time at the fair and how I wish I had deep, deep pockets loaded with cash, there were so many other beautiful pieces I wish I could have bought home with me.
