@sillygillyvintage:
Such a lovely weekend, the highlight of which was the 5th Anniversary of the wonderful Vintage Village in Stockport. Gorgeous car display out front and electric atmosphere as always. Highly recommended for vintage clothes, jewellery and homeware. Second Sunday of every month in Stockport! Loads more pics to come. #vintagevillageuk #vintage #cars #clothes #clothing #fashion #style #jewellery #homeware

[Editor's note: thanks for the lovely testimonial, sillygillyvintage!]



@gemsbitsnbobs:

My Japanese Honey Jar I love his eyes, I had to bring him home

[Editor's note: Fiona was our Finder of the Fair in April]





We had sunshine, we had music - courtesy of the Girls Gone Rockin - we had lots of glossy and lovely classic cars - tip of the hat to the 3 Graces Northwest CCC - and we had tons of amazing vintage to go at.  I can't think of a better way to enjoy our fifth birthday!

Plus we were presented with the most extraordinary birthday cake from Stuart Thornley Cake Design, garnished with a selection of our flyer designs from the past five years.  No wonder the man is a legend in the world of cakes! 

There was a revival of our popular Random Gift Giveaway involving highly specialised technology (that would be the egg timers set at random intervals on the doors) only this time we let the winners decide what they wanted with £5.00 gift vouchers.

And we asked visitors to vote for their three favourite traders on the day.  Thank you to all the voters, we will be presenting the winning traders with their awards at next month's Strawberry Studios Fair on Sunday 11th October.  Of course, all the traders deserve a round of applause!

It looks like everyone else enjoyed the day as much as us, judging by the amount of photos they posted online.  This is, officially, our biggest Visitors' Gallery ever!  Huge thanks all!

If you would like to contribute to our Visitors' Galleries, just post your photos on Twitter @Vintage_Village, or on our Facebook page.  If you're on Instagram, please add the tag #vintagevillageuk.

See you next month!
