Featured Vintassion Seller


Our Uncovered Vintassion Seller in this issue is Zoe whose Stall "Psychotic Monkey" was born from a love of all things quirky. Zoe stocks a large range from Winter fur coats through to stunning Summer maxi dresses and everything in-between!   Here's a taster ...


Based in Lancashire Psychotic Monkey can be found at Vintage Fairs in the area and in fact last Saturday set up Stall at the Crafty Vintage Christmas Event at the St Mary's centre.  As with Crafty Vintage Events  the fair was absolutely buzzing.  There were lots of Vintage goodies from Psychotic Monkey's very own signature 70s print dresses through to furniture and curios. Of course there was also fab entertainment throughout the day from the "Sparkle Sisters", which certainly added a touch of sparkle to the atmosphere and of course the crafty Vintage Tea rooms with Laura's legendary carrot cake...
