Lincoln Does Vintage - 3rd May


Vintassion Seller Michelle of Black Cat Vintage enjoyed another great day at "Lincoln Does Vintage" organised by Britain Does Vintage, with so many familiar faces offering a wide range of lovely vintage goodies, including fashion, home and kitchenalia. Here's Michelle's Stall...




The Drill Hall as usual provided a wonderful venue and the vintage tearoom upstairs was really lovely. Unfortunately entertainer Jayne Darling arrived late due to a breakdown on route, but still gave a great performance.


Michelle's next Fair is "Sheffield Does Vintage" this Saturday, but no worries if you can't make it because she has plenty more lined up over the next couple of months, and of course you always visit her lovely Online Vintage Fair Stall at anytime...


which offers lovely original vintage, retro and upcycled clothes and accessories, and other clothes made to original vintage patterns, as well as handmade bags using some wonderful designer fabrics.
