Visitors' Gallery May 2015

Stockport Market Place and its environs was positively swarming with visitors for the VE Day fair!  The Vintage Village had joined forces with Stockport Market, Stockport Museum and Stockport Creates to collaborate on their VE Day 70th anniversary weekend, so there was an awful lot to see and do on Sunday, as well as take your fill of prime vintage goodies within the market hall.

The result is a bumper crop of photos for this month's Visitors' Gallery, for which we thank you kindly.

All photos link back to their original page, and the usernames link to the contributors' accounts (apart from personal Facebook accounts).  We also love to credit the traders whenever possible, so if you can remember who you bought your treasures from, all the better!

If you'd like to see your picture in our next Visitors' Gallery, please tweet them @Vintage_Village or post them on our Facebook page.  If you're on Instagram please add the hashtag #vintagevillageuk so we can find them (we don't have a VV Instagram account so don't tag us!)

Vintage Village at Stockport Market Hall was fantastic yesterday. We sold lots and came home with a few fab bits of vintage, too. A fab dressmaking pattern from my friend Lisa, another poodle for the parlour from the best trading neighbours ever, A Vintage Affair and three psychedelic beauties from the ace Retro Fit. Can't wait till next month.

Cactus Vintage's stall at Sunday's VV. They had some fab stock, and that lucite block desk tidy was destined to be mine (it's fairly hard to spot here!) #vintagevillageuk

Very restrained at #vintagevillageuk yesterday. Just a Ladybird from All our yesterdays and a German cheese cleaver from a new, unnamed stall. And salted caramel brownie from @stuartthornleycakedesign - best cake yet!

[Editor's note: the new stall may have been Cactus Vintage, a name they came up with on the spot.  This might change, but it will do for now!]
