Vintassion Road Trip Report


Well talk about us having "a ticket to the races"; last Tuesday 15th October was "just the ticket" for us at "The Sandown Park Antique and Vintage Fair" organised by Wonder Whistle Wonder Whistle is fronted by Alan "The Whistle" Kipping supported by his wife and daughter, and close knit team, who have been rather successfully running fairs at Sandown Park Race Course since 1986!



As you can see the fair was buzzing with traders selling and buying, and of course the general public, several from overseas, looking to find a bargain or two from over 270 stalls... Wonder Whistle have one more fair this year on Sunday 1st December but don't worry if you can't make it, as they have 11 fairs already planned for 2014 -

We're certainly planning on more days at the races with Wonder Whistle... check out below how you can win one of three pairs of entry "tickets to the races" worth up to £5 each kindly donated by Alan.
