Fun at the Fair - Feb 2016 Vintage Fair
On Saturday, February 27th, we were thrilled to participate once again in the VintAgeous Vintage Fair at the Fernwood Community Centre. Friday evening marked the opening night of the show, and to kick things off, Vintage Fair Victoria organizers set up a by-donation photo booth to support Women In Need. The booth included a selection of fun props, and customers walked away with a four shot printout. All monetary donations to WIN go to support local women in becoming self-sufficient through bursaries for training or to help develop a small business.
The event atmosphere was electric with the up-beat music, friendly vendors, excited shoppers and not to mention the incredible selection of clothing and goods. In the spirit of Vintage, both vendors and shoppers donned their best retro apparel, including pieces from the Victorian era, right up to the early 90s.
The day was a great success drawing thrifters, crafters and collectors alike from Victoria and surrounding area. WIN's booth saw a steady stream of traffic throughout the day.
We would like to send out a huge thank-you to Vintage Fair Victoria for having us again this year, and for the complimentary boutique space and photo booth fundraiser. A big thank you also goes out to everyone who supported WIN through their purchases and donations.
We look forward to many more vintage fairs to come!
