Vintassion Uncovered - #39, 18/07/14


Hi Vintage Lovers,


With the eagerly awaited Summer holidays fast approaching there's plenty of fab Fairs to visit this weekend to help you get a bit more relaxed before jet or sail off, or stay and enjoy the UK.  One taking place this Sunday that we enjoyed getting along to on our first Vintassion Road Trip of 2014 is the Shepton Giant Flea & Collectors Market at The Royal Bath & West Showground, which has been running for some 10 years and always offers a huge choice for vintage hunters and collectors alike...


... not surprising with over 200 stands inside and many more outside, including one that probably serves the best pasties in the South West - well that's what our taste buds thought!  Shepton Flea is held 6 times a year and as usual Vintassion Seller Galontique is looking forward to selling their lovely antique textiles, needlework, braids and hangings...


Another Vintassion Seller looking forward to setting up stall this weekend is, Bejas Classic Threads at the Suffolk Showground Antique & Collectors Fair...
