Visitors' Gallery August 2014

Well, it was generally agreed that we had some authentic Blackpool weather for our Blackpool Rocks fair: lashing rain!

But nobody let that put them off, and it was business as usual, with our hawk-eyed visitors busily combing the stalls for treasures.  And, as usual, they found some very tasty items, as you can see here.

DJ Jamie el Muerto entertained us with his fairground-tastic rock'n'roll and pop tunes, Maurice the pop-up caravan shop welcomed numerous curious browsers, and the knobbly knees competition finally happened (about an hour later than scheduled) after the heroic recruiting efforts of Ellie and her megaphone.  For more photos of the day, check our Facebook albums here and here.

Our effusive thanks to everyone who shared their photos online.  We love seeing them, even if they make us a bit jealous!

If you would like to contribute, just tweet your photo/s @Vintage_Village - don't forget the underscore! - or post them on our Facebook page.  (It's nice if you can namecheck the traders too, ta!)

If you use Instagram, please add the hashtag #vintagevillageuk so I can find your shots.  Please note that we don't have a Vintage Village account on Instagram, so any '@' tagging will go to someone else!

Next up is our Fourth Birthday Fair on Sunday 14th September - you can't possibly miss that!

We've had a blast at the Blackpool vintage village! Even with the rain! We've got loads of great things from lots of stall holders. The little vintage trailer out side was a treasure trove of vintage delights! A few bits and bobs for my new dollhouse from All our yesterday's! And, two vintage dresses from kinky melon! Wish I could remember all the stall holders names! As always a great time!
