Come visit us at the Victoria Vintage Expo on September 30th & October 1st! This year marks our third year participating as an event sponsor. This time we’re in a new location upstairs near the cafe at Booth 51 & 52.
You don’t need a reason to stop by and say hello but we’ll give you a few…
We raffling off a gorgeous sewing machine, offering fun interactive workshops and showcasing your favourite shop items!
Vintage Themed Workshops
We’re hosting a jewellery upcycling and card making station (included with your ticket!) throughout the show. We have a team of fun and friendly volunteers on hand to help you get creative and relax from all the shopping mayhem! Our station is open to all ages and abilities so don’t be shy!
Accessories – Take old bits of jewellery combined with a vast array of beads, feathers, felt, lace and other trimmings to create new accessories including brooches, hair clips, earrings and necklaces.
Card Making – Delve into our inspiring stash of stamps, art papers, shape punches and decorative scissors to create a special card for someone you love.
We’ll be stocking a range of sewing supplies from our shop including sewing patterns, Cotton + Steel retro inspired cotton prints, laces and trims. We’re also bringing our cute 1950’s Betsy McCall paper dolls, collage magnets by Uniquely Cedra and our beloved bamboo knickers!
