A visit to Vintage Revivial at Grays

1960s Electric Blue Handbag with Gold Clasp. Ting's Jewellery Box

Information on the history of Alfies.

The information boards made fascinating reads on subjects such as 'The Feminine Silhouette', 'Vintage Hair and Make Up'' and 'Vintage and Tattoos'. These contributed to the aim of the exhibition, to explore what vintage means in todays society and what the term 'vintage' means.

If you missed this fantastic exhibition you can see more pictures on Grays Flickr
