Hi this is a quick post just too let you know what I’ve learned lately in the vintage world.
Sadly because of the Coronavirus some of the Festvals have been cancelled this year. The festivals are the ones I have mentioned in a earlier blog. These are Vintage Carnival, Dawn’s Vintage Do, Festival of Vintage and Twinwood
The Festival of Vintage York hosted a Virtual carnival online. They may do the same for September I’m still waiting to hear if the September carnival as been officially cancelled.
Lou Louis vintage fairs are going virtual I dont know yet if the Vintage Carnival, in September has been cancelled and going virtual yet. When these festivals are virtual it means the traders are selling online through the festival Facebook site etc.
Dawn’s Vintage Do has definitely been cancelled as the holiday village where it is as cancelled it.
Twinwood has been cancelled too.
The museums Chrich, Beamish and Kelham are still temporarily closed. But they are waiting for government guidance to reopen.
Although these events are shut it’s for our own safety so we can go again in the future.
Lindy Bop as gone into administration in April. Which I feel sad for as people are now out of work. I loved there clothes and it was there company I first tried for vintage repro.
People are selling there pieces secondhand on Facebook sites . And I recently sold a Lindy Bop top and skirt on ebay.
I hope the above information is useful and hopefully there is a light at the end of the tunnel eventually. Do ask me any questions if you need anymore information.
Keep going and carry on. Stay Calm and keep safe xx
Bye for now 💋oxo

Yeah, all of our events like that are canceled too. We do have an adorable little vintage shop that has remained open. I follow them on Instagram. I’ve never been to their store, but what the post makes me keep them on my radar.

We have a vintage store here in Sheffield. She has just recently reopened by appointment only. She’s got some great clothes. May go over eventually as its other side of the city. They have some pretty clothes in these stores.
