Busy Busy Last Few Days! (Heydon Vintage Fair) August 06, 2015 17:12
Sorry for my poor showing of 'zero' blog posts recently ... but I sure hope to be making up for it!
Been pretty busy working on showcasing the product .... First outing was Sunday just gone, at 'The Little Vintage Lovers Fair' held once a year in a real cool little village called Heydon in Norfolk.
We were in Hertfordshire over the weekend visiting family ... so it was a 05.30 start with a quick coffee and then on the road back to Swingoramic HQ. A quick (not so quick) load of the truck and then a few miles down the road a piece and arrive at Heydon. A great big thank you goes out to 'Wake Up Little Susie' for sparing me a little prime real estate on her stall ... so brief set up and ready to roll for 09.30. Fair was scheduled to start at 10am but there were plenty of eager punters stalking the awesome display of vintage and retro wares ... both inside the village hall and around the grounds. Really fun little fair that just gets busier and busier year on year ... vintage hair and make up via 'The Cowgirls Powder Room' - a great tea and cakes stall with everything served in green Beryl Woodsware and great coffees served from a Morris Station Wagon ... you couldn't ask for more?
I brought two Thunderbird Metal Lawn Chairs (Red & Seafoam Green) they were received very well and certainly lived up to their name as 'conversation pieces'. Loads of flyers grabbed and chatted in depth with some great folk, some local and a few on vacation, including a lovely couple Fraiser and Alison from Scotland. They head up the Pre - '67 Ford Owners Club and they loved the chairs, taking several extra flyers to circulate around their annual Custom Car and Rat Rod Show they organise ... thank you, thank you!
Overall it was a great day, and enjoyed networking around, meeting fellow business and plenty of great folk!
