Vintassion Uncovered - #68, 20/02/15




Hi Vintage Lovers,


Get ready, the Nantwich Annual Spring Vintage & Retro Lifestyle event is on the 1st March...


Nantwich Annual Spring Vintage & Retro Lifestyle


We thoroughly enjoyed visiting last year’s event, which we found absolutely buzzing...



Organised by enigmatic husband and wife duo Ian & Stella of Period Promotions, it's another of their fantastic value for money events in the North West, with the best Rock’n’Roll live entertainment of ‘yesterday’, and vintage offerings.  For details read this week's Uncovered blog - Period Promotions.

Daily favourites


Our selected daily favourite lot this week is by Vintassion Seller Bejas Classic Threads - fantastic example of 70s Maxi Dress size 12, £25obo.  This dress would be great for either a 70s party or for every day wear. It's main colour is brown with shades of white, yellow and orange. The top is designed to look like a waistcoat over a white blouse. The waistcoat is made from a brown jersey fabric with the 'blouse' made from a nylon fabric. The skirt is a cotton fabric which has the appearance of layers. It was manufactured by Cornell.
