Vintassion Uncovered - #45, 29/08/14


Hi Vintage Lovers,


Hope you too managed to find somewhere to go that offered shelter last Bank Holiday weekend what with all that wet weather.  We enjoyed visiting on Saturday Lalli's Passing Fancies Vintage & Craft Fair at Wycliffe College Nr Stroud, Gloucestershire...



as did friends Liz of Dakota Kisses (on the right) and Tanya who is a semi finalist at this year's Miss Pinup UK being held at the London Tattoo Convention 26 to 28 September.  


Unfortunately the organiser Charlotte was unable to be there due to slipping a couple of discs, but her Dad Clive and Mum Sally ably managed to ensure everyone had a great day, including lovely lunches and cakes in their busy pop-up Vintage Tearoom...




Lots more photos of the fair to see in our visit facebook album.


Check out our selection of fab Vintage Fairs to visit this weekend taking place around the UK, including Detling Antiques & Collectors Fair, by B2B Events at the Kent County Showground that typically has up to 400 exhibitors offering antiques, collectables, vintage items.
