Vintassion Uncovered - #20, 07/03/14


Hi Vintage Lovers,


In this issue we're very pleased to feature photos of Trunk Vintage's inaugural event a Jumble Sale held last Saturday at St Ambrose Church Hall, Leyland LANCS, thanks to Vintassion Seller Jacqui who enjoyed selling from her Stall Jacqueline's Vintage.
Last Saturday we went on an impromptu Vintassion Road Trip to the Brunel Vintage & Retro weekend festival Swindon (saw the festival's Ad in the Vintagexplorer Magazine the night before), so thought we would share with you some of our photos like this one...
Now who does that chap on the left remind you of then!

The Brunel Vintage & Retro Festival - 1st to 2nd March


The Festival was held over the weekend in Swindon's Brunel Shopping Centre and was great fun and informative for everyone, what with 'Blitz Buddies' displays...
and re-enactors like the 'Mayor' & 'Lady Mayoress' ...
There was also plenty of entertainment going on inside and outside of the shopping centre ...
The traders’ Marquee was absolutely packed with lots of shoppers AND fab vintage and retro...
There was also a Saturday evening dance spectacular, again in the Brunel Shopping Centre.  The weekend left everyone saying "More, more, more..." and asking "When's the next one?".  Well done to all the team at The Brunel Swindon for organising a fab weekend.
