Would you believe it? We had a better turnout for our Happy New 2015 fair than we did for the December Christmas fair. But, blimey, it was cold!
Fortunately, we had the collective charms of the 3 Graces Northwest Classic Car Club arrayed in the Market Place to lure people in, plus their in-house super DJ team Girls Gone Rockin. And they brought along the Barracudas - who soon warmed things up - a nice surprise we only found out about three days before the fair! And the Skin City Scooter Club turned up on the day!
There were a few regular traders missing - off on Caribbean cruises and the like - but no-one seemed to notice as the market hall was nicely crammed full of vintage treasures. The new vintage centre 20th Century Stores attracted plenty of attention too - looks like its 'soft launch' was a great success.
Mr GentCyclist was the Finder of the Fair, and he turned up quite a few enticing pieces. And Vix of Kinky Melon's Retro Boutique wrote a super blog about the day.
And here's what our visitors shared online (thank you, one and all!)
