Corn Exchange

So in an attempt to get myself back on track, here’s another post within an acceptable amount of time since the previous iteration!

Welcome to the Vintage Fair!

I returned to Leeds after my brief illness recovery stint back at home, and stepped off the train here to be greeted by Luisa (who’s just setup a blog which you should definitely check out!) as we’d arranged to visit Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair, which just so happened to be taking place in the Corn Exchange, a magnificent building in Leeds which I have been meaning to visit for some time now.

I made sure to take plenty of photos, as the grand geometric and repetitiveness of the architecture was a pretty clash to the chaos of the vintage stalls and bunting, making for some beautiful snaps.

I think it’ll be interesting to visit the Corn Exchange when there’s no events on, as I can’t envision it without the hustle and bustle of dozens of clothes racks and stables strewn with odds-and-ends!
