York Does Vintage 14th October 2012 – it was epic!

So, were you part of York Does Vintage on 14th October 2012?

It really was one of the best fairs we’ve ever had.  There was such an upbeat mood all day and we had an amazing 1600 people though the door!

Thank you to all of you who came along, because not only did you have a good day, but you helped our stallholders to have a good day too.  By shopping at our fairs you’re supporting small businesses, proving that even in these hard times that we can have success!  You’re also helping the environment by buying second hand and recycled items.

So, the public, our stallholders and the Now & Then team can quite rightly feel proud of how well it all went.  It was lovely to see so many happy people enjoying the day.

We had some wonderful entertainment in the form of Phil Lyons, who kept all the crowds entertained singing vintage style big band tunes.

Our Lindy Hop dancers were there all day running workshops. What’s so great about them is even if you don’t join the workshops they’re so fun to watch.

Plus, we had the fab Louise Jakobsen, from the Jewellery Channel running craft workshops to make some beautiful rings.

There were lots of cool stuff for sale!  There were gorgeous glove, beautiful bags, fab fur coats, and lovely lace collars!

Did anyone have a vintage make-over, or a photo taken in the photo booth? There really  was something for everyone!

Our crafts people brought some creative handmade goods to their stalls.  So many talented people have stalls at our fairs.  There were items made from vintage fabric, such as purse cushions and pin boards, you could buy knitted mobile phone cases, button hair grips, and really unique jewellery.

Oh and I haven’t even mention the cakes!  Every good fair needs good cakes, and we had such a choice on offer in the tea room.

If you’re now looking forward to our next fair, then we’ve back in York for a spectacular Christmas event on 2nd December 2012.

If you can’t wait till then, our next fair in North Yorkshire will be Harrogate Does Vintage on 10th November 2012.

What better place to do your Christmas shopping than Yorkshire Does Vintage?
