Vintassion Uncovered - #42, 08/08/14


Hi Vintage Lovers,


We enjoyed a fabulous trip down memory lane last Sunday when we visited Miss Ivy Events' All Things Vintage & Artisan in the truly stunning surroundings of Mount Edgcumbe Park on the Cornwall side of the River Tamar opposite Plymouth.



It was great to get the opportunity to visit at last one of Miss Ivy’s lovely Westcounty events and chat to the organiser Jo Macaskie. This day was particularly "memorable", as we're originally from the Westcounty and have very fond memories of visiting Mount Edgcumbe Park & House as children back in the 70s!


There were lots of stalls of gorgeous vintage and handcraft goodies to browse, alongside Mount Edgcumbe's annual Classic & American Car Show now in its 20th year.





Enjoy browsing our facebook album for lots more photos of this lovely day, enjoyed by some 10,000 visitors.  This was the 2nd of 3 Miss Ivy Events to be held at Mount Edgcumbe, the last one this year is on Sunday 7th September.  You can check out all the details of this and other fab Miss Ivy Events yet to come on their website's upcoming events diary


A couple of lovely Vintage Fairs to visit this weekend include B2B Events Custard Factory Antiques & Vintage Bazaar in Birmingham on Saturday, and Cleethorpes 1940s Weekend - "Operation Seagull", where Vintassion Seller Lindsay Linder is looking forward to setting up Stall.
