Vintassion Uncovered - #69, 27/02/15




Hi Vintage Lovers,


This week we are delighted to be able to offer you a preview of our blog about Miss Ivy Events, the proud team behind the hugely popular ‘All things Vintage and Lovely’ events covering the Westcounty led by Joanne Macaskie, who started Miss Ivy Events back in 2011.  


We had the privilege of attending one of Miss Ivy’s Events last August in the truly stunning surroundings of Mount Edgcumbe Park on the Cornwall side of the River Tamar opposite Plymouth - see our facebook visit album.


All of their events bring together quality stallholders, great entertainment and the chance to step back in time for a day.  


Not surprisingly Miss Ivy Events attracts a large following and continue to go from strength to strength. 


Not to rest on their laurels Miss Ivy Events are now planning some incredibly exciting large scale and unique projects with something for everyone, like their Great Vintage Sell Off event this Saturday in Plymouth.


Read our blog about Miss Ivy Events.
