Vintage Lifestyle Fair this Sunday

Vintage Lifestyle Fair flyerThe 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!
