Vintassion Uncovered - #25, 11/04/14


Hi Vintage Lovers,


Apologies for the delay with this issue, it's normally timed to shoot down the fibres at 6am, but we've made a change to our emailing system, which meant for this week it's out in time for a browse over 'High Tea' - we trust it will add a bit of icing on the cake!.
Last Sunday we had an enjoyable ~300 mile Vintassion Road Trip, first to the Nantwich Annual Spring Vintage Fair in Cheshire, then a shorter leg to Vintage At The Dome in Buxton, Derbyshire…
Impressive eh!  Well wait to you see some of the photos later of both of these truly fab events and in different ways as you’ll see.
Looking ahead to this weekend Norwich Fleamarket have a dozen NEW stallholders, so there’s going to be an even wider range of stock on offer from some 100 traders.  For more details of this and other events have a look at the lovely selection of Vintage Fairs you can choose to visit up and down the UK this coming weekend.

Vintassion Road Trip - Sunday 6th March


An enjoyable ~300 mile Vintassion Road Trip starting from Vintassion HQ in Gloucestershire travelling first to the Nantwich Annual Spring Vintage Fair in Cheshire…
 then a shorter leg to Vintage At The Dome in Buxton, Derbyshire…
We were kindly invited by the organisers of both fairs to come along and say hello, browse their sellers’ lovely stall and soak up the oodles of atmosphere. In fact going to the Dome was a 2nd return visit because we loved it so much going to this iconic venue last July.
Both events were truly fab and in different ways as you’ll see from these montages…

Vintage At The Dome
Take a peek at our facebook album for all the road trip photos with captions and contact details of the lovely Stallholders we had chance to have a chat with.
Well done to organisers Stella & Ian of Period Promotions and Gemma & Allison of The Vintage Suitcase and all their helpers, and not least their Stallholders and Entertainers for putting on great Vintage Fairs. Well done also to Gemma for coming up with the lots of fun Easter Egg Hunt game for the kids (and parents...) having to collect clues from Stalls.
Must also mention the brilliant FRIENDS OF THE 40s website for which Ian is the Editor...
It offers a second to none guide to everything 40’s including, upcoming events, clubs & organisations, entertainers, traders, and venues and attractions.
