Vintassion Uncovered - #40, 25/07/14


Hi Vintage Lovers,


Last Saturday we thoroughly enjoyed visiting nearby Hels Belles Vintage and Craft Fair - held for the first time in Stroud, although event organiser Helen Jones (below) has enjoyed organising fairs in Gloucestershire since 2012.




As you will see from all the lovely photos in our Vintassion Road Trip facebook album despite very heavy rain the fair was a great success with over 30 stall holders selling an abundance of all things vintage & handmade in the glorious setting of The Subscription Rooms with its fab retro basement cafe...


Hels Belles Vintage and Craft Fair - Stroud


Make a date in your diary for Hels Belles next Vintage and Craft Fair on the 4 October at Blackfriars Priory, Ladybellgate St, Gloucester. For details of this and more Gloucestershire fair dates check out Hels Belles facebook page.


As usual there's plenty of lovely Fairs to visit this weekend across the UK, like BR Events Home Front Vintage Fair part of the fab Leyburn 1940s weekend that offers a full festival program of entertainment...


Vintassion Seller Dawn of Vintage Glove Box is certainly looking forward to setting up her stall at Leyburn.  Another Vintassion Seller looking forward to setting up her stall this weekend is Jacqueline's Vintage at V&A Fairs popular Southport Antiques & Collectors Fair on Sunday.
