Nottingham Does Vintage - Saturday 15th February


As Britain Does Vintage the organisers of last Saturday's Nottingham Does Vintage rightly claimed "Vintage lovers can while away the hours browsing through rail after rail of fabulous one-off vintage finds. Students looking for cheap, stylish bargains won’t be disappointed either!"  


Certainly Vintasssion Seller Zoe found it was a bustling event with lots of vintage goodies being purchased off her Stall Psychotic Monkey ...




as well as all the other hand picked Stallholders who were offering everything from Vintage clothing through to accessories and home wares, and of course there was the obligatory vintage tea room keeping everyone refreshed with their lovely cakes and drinks.




Don't feel too bad if you missed out on this one, as you can still browse Zoe's online stall Psychotic Monkey and don't forget Britain Does Vintage have plenty more fairs taking place in Yorkshire and further afield throughout 2014 - Britain Does Vintage fair dates
