The Vintage Village Sabrina Fair

From Heaviley to Hollywood, it’s . . .

The Vintage Village Sabrina Fair!

When: Sunday 11th May 2014, 10.00am to 4.00pm
Where: Stockport Covered Market Hall SK1 1EU
How much: £2.00 entry, £1.50 concessions, under 12s FREE!

Stockport’s most glamorous export, the divine Sabrina, is celebrating her birthday on 19th May, and it would be most remiss of us not to mark this momentous occasion!

The very incarnation of classic 1950s glamour - with a breath-taking figure - Sabrina enjoyed a lavish celebrity lifestyle, was courted by royalty and stars such as Frank Sinatra, and was feted the world over as the most famous pin-up of her time.  You can find out much more about her on the comprehensive fan website at nylon.net.

We’re throwing a birthday party for Sabrina and you’re ALL invited!

As well as the stupendous plethora of vintage goodies for ladies, gentlemen and the home you have every right to demand from our fair, you will also find:

★  The 3 Graces Northwest Classic Car Club bringing their fabulous shiny motors.

★  Girls Gone Rockin DJs playing the best of rock’n’roll tunes.

★  Free Movie Matinée showing Sabrina’s 1962 cult film Satan in High Heels (please note that although this film is fairly tame by modern standards, it deals with adult themes and retains its 18 certificate).

★  We're thrilled to welcome FIVE new traders this month.  Say hello to Henhouse, Jennifer Cox, Radical Chic, Shiny Shilling and Victoria's Wardrobe.  Find out what delights they're offering in the traders list below.

On hand to refresh you is the magnificent and multi-award-winning Lord of the Pies offering gourmet British pies served hot with mushy peas and/or gravy, The Green Griddle’s ethical, locally sourced, home made food and Kandoo Mobile Coffee for all your espresso-based beverage needs (plus teas too).  And of course, we have the equally-multi-award-winning Stuart Thornley Cake Design (I think we’d have a riot on our hands if he didn’t turn up!)

LATE UPDATE!  Ginger's Comfort Emporium - purveying the best and most decadent ice-creams for grown-ups in the known world - is coming along!  Look out for their van on Sunday, and be prepared to queue (it's worth it).
