The Great Seaside Vintage Fair is returning to Whitby Pavilion on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 July, for its seventh successive year.
Organiser Caroline Brown from Rose & Brown Vintage says, “Established in 2011 these seaside events are a ‘vintage fair with a sea view’, held in the lovely coastal town of Whitby and lasting a whole weekend, they are popular with stallholders and customers alike.
The Fair features 50 stalls of vintage fashion and vintage homewares from the 1920’s to the 1980’s. It is held in Whitby Pavilion’s Northern Lights Suite, which is perched above the beach and has enormous round windows looking out to sea – what a setting for a vintage fair! The magical atmosphere of Whitby really adds to the buzz and vibrancy of these fairs, and each time we put together a diverse, quality mix of stallholders that really works in this setting.
There will be stock ranging from Art Deco fashion to 1980’s jewellery and all the frocks, hats, handbags (and swimsuits!) in between, plus mid-Century to industrial furniture, lighting, toys, haberdashery, homewares and so much more. This year, amongst the 50 stalls we have included a very popular specialist menswear stall, two vintage vinyl stalls (and a record player / radio stall), and stalls specialising in French decorative vintage and antiques, so we do go even earlier than the 1920’s but never later than the 1980’s. It’s an event which covers the whole spectrum of genuine vintage and because it’s both days of the weekend it means you can really soak up the seaside atmosphere and spend proper time hunting the fair for exciting vintage finds.
It’s an extra excuse to spend a day (or two) in Whitby if you live further afield, and it’s a lovely event which celebrates its beautiful setting, and offers fun vintage bargains for your home or wardrobe if you’re lucky enough to be more local.
