York Does Vintage Fair - Saturday 1st February


Vintassion Seller Michelle enjoyed her third time setting up her Stall Black Cat Vintage at York Does Vintage, which is Britain Does Vintage's original Vintage Fair held at the stunning Merchant Adventures Hall set in beautiful gardens in the centre of historic York...



This wonderful building certain gives an amazing atmosphere to a day full of vintage...



It was certainly a good day to grab some bargains, with many traders having end of season sale rails...



Michelle also found it great to meet customers who knew her from both her facebook business page and Vintassion, and feels linking online selling to 'hands on' at the fairs is certainly a great way forward.  Here's Michelle's Stall set up ready to go...



Michelle is now looking forward to seeing what Lincoln Does Vintage will bring this Saturday, where she is preparing to set up Stall, but if that's too short notice for you, Michelle has several more Vintage Fairs planned.   And don't forget you can still buy online from Michelle's Vintassion Stall all her lovely original vintage, retro and upcycled clothes and accessories, as well as buy 'hands on' at Fairs.


PS In case you are interested Michelle also makes gorgeous clothes to original vintage patterns and handmade bags using some wonderful designer fabrics.
