Vintassion Uncovered - #48, 19/09/14


Hi Vintage Lovers,


Do you love live Rock'n'Roll? Do you love shopping for Vintage & Retro? If you too love this fabulous combination, you'll  love The Nantwich Annual Autumn Vintage Fair & Retro Lifestyle Event taking place in a couple of weeks on Sunday 28th September...




We first met the organisers Stella & Ian (no that's not them above!) of Period Promotions at their Nantwich Annual Spring Vintage Fair (see our facebook album of the visit) and without hesitation recommend you making a day of it, including discovering the beautiful Historic Market Town of Nantwich, once you've purchased some vintage and retro goodies, and danced your 'socks off' to live music from the fabulous Hayriders and guest Retro DJs.


Of course you don't have to wait until the end of the month to indulge your passion for vintage and retro, because as usual we've got a fab selection of Vintage Fairs to visit this weekend around the UK for you to choose from, including:

  • The Matlock Vintage & Handmade Fair, on Saturday by The Vintage Suitcase
  • All things Vintage & Lovely Fair, in Taunton on Saturday by Miss Ivy Events 
  • Malvern Flea & Collectors Fair, on Sunday by B2B Events
  • Leicester Does Vintage, on Sunday by Britain Does Vintage and if you show this voucher you'll get half-price entry...


Please find Uncovered this week:

So start browsing or click an item of interest.
