Starting a blog

I have been meaning to write a blog for a number of months now as I am always going to different vintage fairs, meeting lots of lovely people, buying many beautiful things, organising vintage fairs and meeting beautiful retro models on photo shoots.   I am Victoria and I am one third of Vibrant Vintage, the other two thirds are Wayne and Kath.

I have recently finished writing a LL.M in law and now have a bit more time on my hands to write a blog.  Over the next few weeks I will also be looking at getting the website up and running as we have some lovely clothing and accessories to sell.

I am also very busy preparing for our last fairs of the year.  We are at the Mercury Hotel, Westhoughton on Sunday 7th October 12-5pm.  This is one of my favourite fairs as the venue owners are very welcoming and the fair itself is intimate with 16 stalls giving it a lovely warm and friendly atmosphere.  I always end up spending a fortune.

The our last vintage and retro craft fair of the year will take place at Haigh Hall on Sunday 18th November 10am-4pm.  This is a huge fair with a great range of vintage, retro craft and collectable stalls coming and even a pop up hair salon.  The fair will take place in the impressive Haigh Hall that will have Christmas decorations, open fires, mulled wine to get you in the Christmas mood.

Finally, the business has been nominated as a finalist to win “best vintage fair” in the Vintage Manchester awards.  I am very shocked and excited to be in the final three as the other two fairs in the category are huge fairs in the Manchester area.  If you have been to one of our fairs and enjoyed it, please do vote for us to win by logging onto the Vintage Manchester site.  Plus the best thing about being a finalist is that I have been invited to an awards ceremony.  Now all I need to do is decide what to wear.
