The show at Great Barrington Village Hall on Saturday 3 May was outstanding! Three ladies had organised it and it was their first event. The setting was stunning I have to say and the sun was shinning and warm. When you drove around little country lanes to the Hall, there were car park attendants in the field opposite, and then all you had to do was just walk across the road and a little way along.
The Village hall itself is enough to make you happy but when you walked through the gates with lots of lovely vintage stalls outside as well as filled to the brim inside with lots stall holders all selling wonderful vintage goodies, well you were in vintage heaven.
You had to pay £2 entry fee which was going to charity and then you had a choice of pink champagne or elderflower fizz ( these were complimentary) in addition there was a stunning hamper that you could buy a ticket for to win in a prize drawer later in the day.

The roving Oxford and Cotswold hills shone in the sunshine and greeted the hoards of vintage lovers.

By now my husband and I decided after the journey from Bournemouth we would go to the little cafe inside and sample a piece of cake each and a coffee, there was a choice of cakes and flapjacks and they were making soup for anyone who wanted it at lunchtime. There was background music playing and the tables were up on the stage part so you could look at all the inside stalls and soak up the lovely atmosphere.

We would like to thank all the wonderful stall holders at The Art of Vintique and the organisers and every one we met along the way!
