Vintassion Uncovered - #32, 30/05/14

 

Hi Vintage Lovers,

 

Last Saturday was our first time visiting a Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair and what a great one to start with… Judy's Birmingham’s Affordable Vintage Fair in the city centre’s vibrant “Custard Factory” was superb. The Judy's organiser on the day was their Brand & Event Manager Emily Hughes, who was very pleased with the turnout of over 40 fab stalls and close to a 1,000 visitors!  We arrived at doors opening 11am and stayed until late afternoon browsing Stalls and enjoying the amazing Vintage Tea Party...
 
 
Gill, Zeta & Viv did a fab job helping to serve everyone scrumptious cake and savouries, cooked only with the best ingredients to perfection by the owner of “Pear of Peas” Pennie Pengilly www.facebook.com/Pearofpeas. We can only add eating is believing… see and read more about the Fair in our very latest Vintassion Road Trip Album.
 
Also Last Saturday, Vintassion Seller Violet's Vintage Home set up stall at the "Vintage and Very Nice May Garden Fete" ...

Held at the foot of the castle in the picturesque market town of Arundel, West Sussex, there was a good mix of vintage homeware, clothing and craft stalls, a clairvoyant, vintage caravan serving ice-creams and refreshments served by the Blightea ladies.  Luckily the everchanging weather throughout the day didn't deter the visitors and as usual the friendly stallholders and organisers made the day great fun.  Vintage and Very Nice hold a monthly Market Bazaar in Chichester and have more dates in Arundel and Petworth over the Summer - www.vintageandverynice.co.uk/visitors
