The North London Vintage Market was started in 2011 by two successful vintage dealers from Spitalfields Antique Market. This regular market feature 23 carefully hand-picked vintage traders selling a wide selection of vintage goods. This one doesn’t focus on fashion but has a great range of mid-century ceramics, vintage fabric, kitchenalia, books and other retro curiosities as well as vintage clothes. It’s a great place to pick up some quirky bits for your home and wardrobe.
Earlier this year The North London Vintage Market, celebrated it’s 3rd birthday. At the time they expanded their normal one day event to a special 2 day one which was a huge success. So this weekend they are returning with a second two-day event in their regular location of St Mary’s Parish Hall in Crouch End.
All the stock at the market dates from the 1800s to the 1970s so there’s bound to be something for every vintage taste. I’m always particularly on the lookout for great things for my kitchen.
As I’m away in Birmingham all weekend I sadly won’t be able to attend this time, but if your nearby then I’d definitely pay this one a visit. Looking at the pictures from their last event I spotted lot’s of vintage tins and enamel kitchen ware which are things I can never resist, also look out for some fabulous retro tea sets and gorgeous glass cake stands.

Have you been to the market before? Did you get anything nice?

That sounds so lovely. Sometimes, and I say this as the most die hard vintage fashion lover imaginable, it’s nice actually to focus on shopping for non-clothing or accessory items and more on other vintage bits and bobs for the home, craft room, or to buy as gifts for others and it sounds like this market would fit the bill there perfectly.
