The Stow’s Vintage Lifestyle Fair takes place this Sunday, with a Valentine’s theme. The ‘Valentine’s Fancies’ event is in the ballroom of the Orford House Social Club in Walthamstow Village.
The fair promises to be a veritable smörgåsbord of vintage. Clothes, jewellery, hats and accessories are on offer, along with rare vinyl, books and crafts. There is also music, and a tombola if you’re feeling lucky.
The fair runs from 12-5pm so will make for a marvellous Sunday afternoon. You could even head to the Castle or the Nags Head nearby for a swift one, perhaps to revel in a glorious tombola victory? Anyway, tickets are £2 on the door, under 16s get in free. Have fun!
This Wednesday The Walthamstow Wind-Up comes to Ye Olde Rose & Crown. The night features a range of DJs spinning 78rpm records, from 20s swing, 30s dance and 50s rock ‘n’ roll.
If you want to get the look as well as groove to the tunes, Frillseekers will also be there, offering vintage ladies dresses from the era. And, by all accounts BBC Radio 4 will be in attendance, making a documentary about the night as well!
Entry is free and the action kicks off at 7.30pm. Full details about the event can be found here.
