My vintage experience

Our fashionista goes retro as she discovers the City Bowl Fashion Market.

As Capetonians we ADORE our markets and recently I came across the City Bowl Fashion Market, and fell in love. This is becoming the new place to do your shopping because you find new and vintage fashion, décor, accessories, jewellery and much more.

Take my word for it; this will become the new place in Cape Town for artists and designers around the Western Cape.

If you love creativity, don't miss out on the more than 30 designers who will all be gathered at 14 Hope Street for this amazing event on Saturday 29 June.

I promise you won't be disappointed!

Check out For Old Time's Sake on Facebook for some awesome new and old pieces you’ll just love!

From chunky intarsia knits and boxy-fit sweaters to monochrome prints, you can stay cosy this winter.

Check out Vintage Lover on Facebook  for great old and new buys!

Janece Frick finds, sources and buys vintage clothing, handbags and the odd accessory to retail to her loyal fans via the Vintage Lover Facebook page. She works on a “comment-and-it’s-yours-to-buy” basis. I’m making my purchase soon (yay!).

Discover vintage-inspired jewellery!

Save the date for the next fashion market ? Saturday 29 June.

Go and experience it yourself!

‘Til next time,
