It was a bit cold, and the whole of Greater Manchester was a little quieter than normal due to some football match or other, but it was still a fantastic January Vintage Village at Stockport Market. We had a great day for sales – so good first thing, in fact, that I hadn’t fully unpacked the stall before I’d sold both a red and a cream 746. It did leave the stall a bit monochrome for the rest of the day – although that’s not a bad problem to have!
Just like the last time I was there, the best thing about the fair is talking to the customers and other stall holders – the atmosphere is always friendly and welcoming. It was also lovely talking to a couple of satisfied customers, including the man who got this red Ericofon for Christmas.
We also had a lot of interest in our 70s-style holiday cabin, Caban Casita, on which we were giving a 10% discount to any VV visitors. Pop over to the Caban Casita website to see what the fuss is about! (It’s probably the 70s retro stylings and stylish vintage furniture, and fun books and games).
Of course, the most important thing about VV isn’t what we were selling, but what we bought – and it was a fine haul this month! I’ll do a proper post later this week, but between me and my partner Jen it involved a clock, Doctor Who, great typography, the Mitford sisters, dixieland jazz and, inevitably, amazing cakes.
