Vintassion Uncovered - #38, 11/07/14


Hi Vintage Lovers,


Last Saturday shoppers were invited to take a step back in time for Immingham’s 1st Vintage and Craft Fair.  Vintassion Seller Lindsay Linder wanted to bring a bit of Nostalgia to her home town and succeeded, ‘I visit Vintage Fairs all over the country and thought it was about time I brought a bit home. The fairs are such friendly places and a break from the norm. Bringing back treasured memories, finding the perfect bespoke item and giving ideas for handmade projects and gifts’, enthused  Lindsay... 


Immingham's 1st Vintage and Craft Fair


with something for everyone, from vintage clothing, accessories, handmade gifts, confectionary and homewares, it was not surprising visitors arrived well ahead of time.  The tearoom provided by the venue Trinity Church kept both stallholders and visitors fully refreshed, with all the proceeds raised going towards the yearly Christmas tree display showcasing local community groups.


Check out Lindsay's facebook album for lots of fab pictures of the day.
