Colchester has been missing the unique style of The Secret Vintage Fair while we went on a secret vintage hiatus for a few months (see what we did there!) hatching plans for the future! But we are announcing our dates for the coming year now- kicking off on with our first full event in Colchester Saturday 23rd August as well as exciting news about our expansion.
The founder of The Secret Vintage Fair, Lucy, has relocated to Cambridgeshire and will be launching The Secret Vintage Fair in Cambridgeshire/Lincolnshire/Northamptonshire this year, while Janine, is focusing on events in Essex & Suffolk. And we are thrilled to welcome on to the team Hatty in Essex and Charlie in Cambridgeshire, both of whom will be supporting the newly expanding fairs.
Hatty says “I’m really looking forward to getting involved with the Secret Vintage Fair, I've had a stall at nearly every one of their fairs and love how they run things, so it’s exciting to be involved with the secret”. Hatty runs the successful local vintage business “What’s Your Tale Nightingale?” and actively supports Colchester's indie businesses. Charlie has a huge passion for vintage homewares and a love of a nostalgic/vintage lifestyle and interiors, as she’s finished renovating her period home, and is looking forward to working with Lucy on their second territory, Cambridgeshire, with plans to also expand into Northamptonshire, and Lincolnshire too. She says: "I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to expand on my passion for all things vintage and can’t to wait to have a hand in helping these lovely ladies with the amazing Secret Vintage fair!"
BACK IN TOWN
The Secret Vintage Fair is returning to Colchester on Saturday 23rd August to a central Colchester venue which we have not visited before! As always we promise it will be BIG, have full entertainment schedule, activities & workshops. As always the event location is kept strictly under wraps, until a week before the event, being released first to those on the Secret Vintage mailing list and our social media followers... so make sure your first to be in on the secret and follow both our main Secret Vintage Fair page as well as our NEW Essex& Suffolk page for all the latest news (Cambridgeshire/Lincolnshire pages and events coming very soon!). As always the event will be supporting a charity with a proportion of the door fee, a charity raffle and other activities. We will be announcing the charity soon.
Entrance to the event is £3 free for accompanied under 16s. Traders applications are open, those interested in having a stall at the event should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
On top of that The Secret Vintage Fair are popping up at 2 events before we do our next fair. You can find us at The Great South Feastival on 26 & 27th July at Thorpe Le Soken, and at Folk East on 15, 16 & 17th August. We were thrilled to be asked by both festivals to join them and we will be launcghing a competition on behalf of both events soon.
