at the iconic Alexandra Palace for London's largest Anitiques & Collectors Fair, where Pop Up Vintage Fairs London brings a touch of "Vintage Glamour".  Their greetings cards sold exceptionally well, to both new and repeat customers and they are already looking forward to the next fair at "Ally Pally" on 14th September when their Christmas cards will be available!
Vintassion Sellers looking forward to setting up their Stalls this weekend include on Saturday, Jacqueline's Vintage at "The Manchester Vintage & Retro Fashion Fair" organised by Decorative Fairs and Vintage Fashion Studio Durham at "Durham Does Vintage" organised by Britain Does Vintage, and on Sunday Black Cat Vintage will be at "York Does Vintage" also organised by Britain Does Vintage.   For details of these (including links to the Sellers' Online Vintage Fair Stalls and event organisers' web pages) and other events taking place around the UK this weekend see our regular section Vintage Fairs to visit this weekend
