That’s right, oo arh! is branching into the fun filled world of vintage!
Fo a while now many of my customers have recommended vintage fair to me as a fantastic place to trade and that I have a vintage-ey feel anyway so seemed like a natural step.
I did some research and there is some much going on in the vintage scene I didn’t know where to start!
I had a personal recommendation to try and get into the very oversubscribed and sold out MK Vintage Fairs in Milton Keynes – unsuccessful on my first attempt but fingers crossed for this upcoming one in September!
Some fellow traders I have met over the years spoke highly of Lou Lou’s Vintage Fairs – they have fairs almost every weekend up and down the country, so wherever you are there is probably one coming up new you and I cannot recommend them enough (if unique and vintage clothes, collectables, swing music, retro hair dos, amazing tea and cakes are your thing!).
So far I have been to Cardiff and Swindon with their amazing team and have not been let down by their marketing and advertising for their events, their organisation and helpfulness cannot be rated enough!
The customers are really lovely too – there to browse and chat and have a great day out and so complimentary! It is nice to be offering something different, with a fresh feel and something which you cannot get on the highstreet!
I wish I could do one every weekend but family commitments and other events have meant that I have not done one for a while – I’m having vintage withdrawal symptoms! Nevertheless I am booked into the Bristol at the end of April and cannot wait!
Finally, I have gone one step further and combined my old love of festivals with my new vintage obsession and we are thrilled to announce that we will be attending the Vintage Nostalgia Festival at the end of May – a whole weekend dedicated to all things vintage and fun, what a way to start the festival season!
Stay tuned for more vintage exploits!
