Hanging Rail Market

The lovely people at Forgotten Vintage Sales began spreading the word about their first ever vintage market back in February. 

Here at Sew & Sew we eagerly awaited the event, held on the first Thursday of March. The Coffee Lounge in the city centre of Birmingham played host to some of the best vintage retailers on the Birmingham Scene, as well as new designers, handmade jewellery stalls and even live music...the afternoon was a HUGE success.

Carl and Amy at Forgotten Vintage have just announced the market will be held monthly due to the great turn out. Again on the first Thursday of the month, April 7th, The Hanging Rail Market (Mark II) graces The Coffee Lounge with its presence. And believe us, there are some great bargains to be had!

See your dream dress but it doesn't quite fit.....? Don't fear, after the Sew & Sew launch we will help you. Sew & Sew will be the place to go to get the most unique wardrobe you can imagine.

Okay, so originally this poster was the women telling the men to go to war.... Now this poster is a woman (me) telling you to "GO" and find yourself some bargains. Whether it be clothes or fabric, sew&sew will be your one stop shop for where to go, what to do and who to see to get you a wardrobe that is unique.

Why I hear you say? Because with the cost of living soaring, now is the time to get your sewing kit out and mend the old and rework the new. It will do wonders for your bank balance while helping the world we live in.... so why not give it a try? 

I recently graduated from Birmingham Institure of Art and Design with a First Class degree in Fashion Management. I love all things vintage... clothes and furniture being the big ones.
