Vintassion Uncovered - #26, 18/04/14


Happy Easter Vintage Lovers,


We hope everyone is able to have a relaxing and enjoyable Easter Bank Holiday weekend and fingers crossed for the good weather continuing.
Thought we show you first our new flyer designed by Period Promotions (thank you Ian) that's just arrived hot off the press, some 5,000 copies...
If event organisers are able to put some on the entrance tables at your Events etc, that would be absolutely great thanks; just email ( and we'll pop a few in the post. 
Thought you might like to see the fabulous Norwich Fleamarket in action last Saturday, which was was a another buzzing fair with dealers coming from as far afield as Holland to buy, buy, buy! You don't have too long to wait until their next Fair, it's Saturday 10 May. 
Fancy visiting a Vintage Fair or two this Bank Holiday weekend, well there's a great selection taking place around the UK.  So for example, if you're Derbyshire way Saturday you can visit the Littleover Vintage Fair, then on Sunday moving down the country how about the Shepton Giant Flea and Collector's Market, and then Monday head back Northwards to AdVintageous Vintage Fair at the The Spa Scarborough.  We ourselves are looking forward to setting up Stall at Vanity Fairs' Antique, Vintage, & Collectors' Fair near Gloucester on Sunday.
