Huddersfield Does Vintage - Saturday 7th December


Last Saturday's "Huddersfield Does Vintage" fair at the Huddersfield Town Hall was Vintassion Seller Jayne's first time as a "stallie" in this beautiful venue...
It was an experience Jayne is very much looking forward to repeating not least because of the fab organisers, Now and Then Events' Britain Does Vintage Team...
who made sure that the fair was well advertised and organised and also made all the stallies very welcome - even coming around with a huge plate of biscuits to help keep up everyones energy up for a good day's selling!  The Town Hall staff were also very welcoming and, my goodness, you couldn't ask for a more stunning interior!
Entertainment was provided throughout the day by singer Laura Stimpson (shown below doing her sound check) and the Four Shadows Theatre Co, all performing a lovely range of songs old and new.
Jayne didn't get chance to visit the tea room as she was working her stall Strumpets Bazaar on her own on this occasion but saw others returning with huge slabs of delicious-looking cakes.  Best of all, a really cool crowd turned out to buy a wide selection of unusual vintage gifts for Christmas as well as outfits and accessories to stand out in. 
Jayne met some interesting and interested people and had a great day's trading; here's her stall all set up ready for the off ...
At the end of the day a very enjoyable time was had by everyone and Jayne as you might say was indeed one very happy Strumpet!  Why not check out now Jayne's fab Vintassion Stall...
