Vintassion Uncovered - #19, 28/02/14


Hi Vintage Lovers,


We thoroughly enjoyed our first 2014 Vintassion Road Trip on Sunday to the Shepton Giant Flea & Collectors' Market at The Royal Bath & West Showground organised by Sue Ede and her hard working events’ team.  You can see below photos of several of the Stalls we enjoyed ‘browsing’, including Vintassion Seller Galontique - apologies to those Stalls we missed but there just wasn’t enough time…
As well as details of selected Vintage Fairs to visit this coming weekend, we thought you might be interested to hear about Norwich Fleamarket's next Fair on the 8th March, which regularly has over 100 stalls from dealers across East Anglia and beyond, and this particular Fair includes a special fashion show as part of Norwich Fashion Week...
... when all the clothes modelled will be available for sale to raise funds for 'Sams in the City'. 24 different sized models will showcase ‘eight classics three different ways’ to demonstrate how vintage and charity shop finds can provide high fashion on a budget.  So well worth a visit if you are Norfolk Way next weekend.

Vintassion Road Trip - 23rd February Shepton Giant Flea

Please enjoy ‘browsing’ the thumbnails below and visit our facebook album page for full size photos (with captions) of several of the Stalls we enjoyed ‘browsing’.  We also put to the test Sue’s claim that they probably serve the best pasties in the South West – find out what our taste buds thought!

For more dates check out their website Sue Ede and her team also enjoy organising other events, which are certainly worth checking out: Cooper Antiques Fairs (6 more weekends this year at venues across England); and, The 25th Bath Decorative & Antiques Fair 6-9 March
