“Interior style magazines continue to reference and feature past design periods – this only helps to reinforce the idea that vintage offers a great level of quality and style without a large investment.  We have recognized the growing interest in vintage design and décor and its place in contemporary homes.”  This is how Amelia Forster started her project. The founder of Before1980 defines her creature as a new fair that will focus purely on interiors – from ancient to 1970s. Before1980 will favor style over age and has invited like-minded traders to exhibit – whose stock style is distinctive and special, and whose displays are always creative and inspirational. Not a traditional flea market is then expected at Central Library, Islington (London) saturday 22nd September 2012, but a real “curated” space that will feature furniture, 20th century lighting, European Textile, distressed leather, mid century chic, Victorian Gothic, retro kitchen, art and artifacts, rustic home. The first fair features handpicked traders selling stylish pieces for the home and garden will be only the first part of a series of seasonal events celebrating home style and good living.

Saturday 22nd September 2012  from 11am – 5pm

Central Library, Islington. 2 Fieldway Crescent – London N5 1PF
