As the fair is just before Mother’s Day, why not pop on in for a browse for an unusual gift.  The Mercury has recently been refurbished and the venue looks fab (I had my 30th Birthday Party there).  The entrance fee is just 50p and you can spend as long as you want looking round.  We look forward to seeing you at the fair

The Mercury is situated on the A6 just off junction 5 of the M61 (540 Manchester Road, Westhoughton, Bolton, BL5 3JP).  The fair will start at 11am and finish at 4pm

Our little shop

Well, Vibrant Vintage have had a hectic few months.  Just before Christmas we decided to move from Westhoughton market into a shop in Westhoughton.  On Saturday 12th January we opened our doors but have spent the following weeks doing lots of little jobs to finish the shop off, we still have lots more to do.
