Ooh our summer calendar is really filling up now - we're going to be busy, busy, busy! We'll be travelling up and down the country bringing our travelling boutique of vintage clothing, accessories and handmade jewellery, hopefully we will see you somewhere along the way! First stop is Bristol on 14th May with our friends The Vintage Fair. Their fairs are always a great day out - you'll find the cream of UK traders offering a superb mix of vintage clothing as well as handmade items, homewares, cupcakes and a vintage salon - plus the DJs spin retro tunes all day long! We will also be joining them at Nottingham on 11th June and Norwich on 12th June, as well as some other events which you will find out about below...
The next day we'll be heading up to Stoke On Trent for Nana's Vintage Fair
, which sounds like a rocking good day out - it's in a bar, which is always a plus as you can sip a tipple of your choice as you peruse the stalls, and there is also going to be a vintage scooter rally congregating outside to add a real sense of occasion!
The next stop is FOM Fest
- our first festival of the year! The Vintage Fair will be curating a marquee of vintage shopping, and that's where you'll find us. The festival sounds ace, it's developed from a club night which started in Manchester in 2004, and has a great line up mainly featuring Manchester bands including The Charlatans
, Badly Drawn Boy
, The Cribs
and The Lightning Seeds
. We can't wait!
That very same weekend we'll be a lot closer to home too, for the first Solihull Vintage & Arts fair
- organised by the people who brought you Sutton Vintage & Arts Fair
which has proved a real hit on the West Midlands vintage scene, they'll be taking the same super atmosphere to the Methodist Church Hall in Solihull, just around the corner from Touchwood
The same company will also be hosting a number of fairs in beautiful Stratford Upon Avon
which we will also be attending, in the lovely venue Cox's Yard
. So there is plenty of opportunity for midlands vintage fans to get out and about this summer!
Our second festival of the season will be Beach Break Live in South Wales. It's a five day bonanza by the beach! Again we'll be in The Vintage Fair's marquee which will be full to bursting will vintage goodies, and we're looking forward to the line up which includes White Lies, Professor Green, Katy B and Example.
So, we'd best get busy making sure that we have the best stock ever to take to all these super events! We're thinking summer dresses, denim shorts, cute accessories, hawaiian shirts, hats and shades.... the list is endless! We'll let you know more of our summer plans when we have them!
