Vintassion Uncovered - #51, 10/10/14


Hi Vintage Lovers,


Last Saturday we enjoyed setting up stall ourselves at the fab Vintage & Craft Fair Gloucester organised by Hels Belles that is regularly held at one of England's most complete medieval Dominican friaries; what do you think the Friars would have thought of Kitty Ribbons Burlesque striptease performance in the cloisters... 



As well as lots of live entertainment there were plenty of Vintagewares and Crafts for shoppers to browse in this truly magnificient setting...



For lots more lovely photos checkout Hels Belles facebook page. Don't miss out on the next fair on the 6 December and if you can't wait until then Hels Belles also organises another fab regular fair at Stroud Subscription Rooms with the next on the 1 November.    


If you too love vibrant fabrics and colourful prints then you'll love this week's Guest Blog by Trish of Vintage Home who shares with us her passion for making fabulous retro & vintage-inspired textiles for the home...
