We’re delighted to see many of our favourite stallholders back again this year, and to welcome a host of exciting new exhibitors for 2016. Joining the vintage jamboree for the first time this year are:
Francine Owens Vintage Beauty
Francine is a freelance hairstylist and makeup artist who knows her way round a Victory roll and can give your eyeliner some fabulous extra flick. Hell, this woman was even a hair and makeup assistant on Poldark and has powdered Aidan Turner’s manly temple in her time. So, pop along to her pop up parlour and get your vintage glam on with a makeover from Francine.
Nick Pearce Photography
Once you’ve been preened and pampered by the fabulous Francine, make your way to Nick Pearce’s Pop Up Vintage Portrait Studio for your free vintage vibe portrait. There will be authentic props to pose with, from boas to bowler hats.
Nick specialises in vintage wedding photography, so if you are a bride-to-be with a vintage bent, he might be the photographer for you.
The Curious Tinker
Love vintage clothing but find too often that the sizing is on the small side, the seams are starting to go or the fabric is fraying?
The Curious Tinker specialises in making new, vintage-style dresses using original fabrics and sewing patterns. You’ll find lots of lovely ready-to-wear retro clothing on this stall, but Cathy – aka The Curious Tinker herself – also offers a made-to-order service and takes bridal commissions. Her range includes garments for gentlemen and children, too, so the whole family can get in on the vintage action.

Susie & Russell Needham Textiles
This exciting stall will be laden with fine antique, vintage, contemporary and tribal textiles and costumes. Make your way here for one of the largest specialist stocks of vintage fabrics in the whole southwest.
Come this way for fresh, quirky and unique items, handmade from start to finish using new and vintage textiles on a 1947 Singer sewing machine.
Vintage Warehouse 13
These guys are specialists in sourcing vintage, mid century and up-cycled furniture, objects and lighting.
Scandinavian By Design
This is a family-run business specialising in Scandinavian furniture and lighting from the 1940s to the 1970s. Their network of Scandinavian-based suppliers mean they are able to source some of the best and rarest must-have pieces, directly from the heartland of midcentury modern.
We love the way these guys re-purpose and re-vamp old, unloved lights. They use old music stands, cymbal stands and reclaimed timber for their lamp bases. You’ll find an array of vintage and recycled lampshades made from aluminium, enamel and even vintage jelly moulds.
