Secondhand September: Shop vintage in Newcastle to help the environment

Shopping secondhand can help the environment

Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair is coming to Newcastle on Sunday, September 25.

The vintage fair travels the country, and sells a variety of vintage pieces and ranges from 35 different traders. You can expect to find womenswear, menswear, jewellery, collectables, homeware and more at the fair.

Join in with Secondhand September, and shop vintage!

As well as visitors being able to shop beautiful vintage pieces, they will also be able to grab a slice of cake or two! At the event, there will also be Lou Lou’s Tea Party, provided by No19 Afternoon Tea, where homemade cakes and other treats will be available to shoppers.

Lou Lou’s are tagging #secondhandseptember across social media, a campaign created by Oxfam. The campaign encourages fashion-lovers to buy second hand rather than brand-new. Shopping responsibly, ethically and sustainably is better for the environment, and the campaign has seen great success since it started in 2019.
