Featured Vintassion Seller


Our Uncovered Vintassion Seller in this issue is Rebecca who after living in the lovely North Devon village of Lewdown for 18 years and trading as Little Nutkins Trading Company for 18 months, thought it was time to let the locals know about LNTC!


So on Wednesday 20th November Rebecca with the help of her family set about creating a vintage style pop up tea room and shop in her Village Sports Pavilion...



What an excellent night was had. 1940's music playing, lots of lovely nostalgic memorabilia around the tea room and shop, plus dressing up in period clothing and hair styles (this did mean Rebecca had a trip to pick up her youngest child from the childminders with her hair rollers in!!).


There were more visitors than ever expected on the night and the delicious cakes baked by Rebecca's eldest daughter and served by her son were very close to selling out...



as were LNTC's lovely scarves and vintage inspired items...




So the locals thoroughly enjoyed the evening and well and truly got to know Little Nutkins Trading Company, and in the process a fair few Christmas presents knocked off shopping lists!
If you too have a passion for vintage inspired, floral and lovely things then why not like Little Nutkins Trading Company on and visit their website

Ashbourne Vintage Fair - Sunday 17th November


Organised by Absolutely Vintage Darling the increasingly popular Vintage Fair at Ashbourne was according to Vintassion Seller Liz Holgate "Absolutely Buzzing" last Sunday with a mix of regular and new traders offering two floors full of vintage loveliness in the delightful Town Hall.
There was everything from clothing, jewellery, handbags and accessories for the fashion hunters to furniture, collectables and linens for your vintage home!
Not to mention the nice lady upstairs with her handmade chocolates... thankfully far enough away from Liz's Stall so that temptation could be resisted (mostly)...
Not surprisingly Liz had a busy day, although many people are starting to buy for Christmas presents at the moment a popular line was her innovative idea of "crafty bits" bags with vintage beads, some bigger pieces of broken jewellery and plenty jewellery findings included so that you can design, create, and embellish to your heart's content! 
Fortunately Liz still has plenty of pretty, sparkly jewellery to show - and you can find her Stall THIS SATURDAY at the new Belper Vintage Fair, and, at the Alfreton Antiques Fair on the 24th...
Liz is looking forward to meeting some new customers!  but if you like to browse and buy now some of Liz's stunning sparkly jewellery or maybe reserve and collect at a fair, then go ahead and visit Liz Holgate's Vintassion Stall...
