I think it's fair to propose that buying second-hand or vintage is following in the wartime spirit of economy and making do, and at this month's 2WW-themed Yanks in Stockport Fair, there were plenty of splendiferous pre-owned bargains to be had. You can see the evidence to back up this claim on this very page!
We've also included a few super photos from around the fair because we want to (and we make the rules around here!)
Many thanks to everyone for sharing their pictures on Twitter - it's always such a treat to see them! Don't forget that if you want your picture included please tweet it @Vintage_Village so we don't miss it, or post it on our Facebook page.
