This business is all about weather-watching - well, it's about quite a bit more, but the weather is a key factor - and the forecast for our D-Day Fair spelled DOOOM!

Fortunately, we somehow escaped the DOOOM and had a rather nice sunny day.  The North West contingent of the Military Vehicles Trust rumbled up with some of their original 1940s trucks and jeeps, Maria Manchester sang her heart out, and the Homefront movie matinée was not entirely deserted!

Our visitors applied themselves to hoovering up vintage bargains with a will, and here are some of their super finds we spotted online, along with some snaps taken round the fair.

Hearty thanks to everyone who shared their shots.  You certainly are very accomplished vintage hunters!

Click on the photos to view their original pages, and you can click on the names to find out more about these tasteful and stylish contributors (of course, we bear no responsibility for the content of external sites!)

If you would like to contribute, just tweet your photo/s @Vintage_Village (remember the underscore!) or post them on our Facebook page.  If you use Instagram, please add the hashtag #vintagevillageuk so I can find your shots.

Our next fair is at Old Granada Studios on Sunday 22nd June.  We hope you can call round!

“Came away with more than I could carry this month. 50s hand painted side table from Bang on Retro. Brass oil lamp from Jim & Keith, piggy bank from Kitsch Republic & red leather gloves from the clothes stall at the very back."

[Editor's note: that's Big on Retro, and the gloves were from Garbo Antiques].
