What: Frock Around The Clock Vintage Fair
When: Sunday 3rd November
Where: Malone House, Barnett Demense, Belfast.
Admission: Just £3!
Frock Around The Clock will be celebrating 5 fabulous years of vintage glamour at their next fair on Sunday 3rd November at the beautiful setting of Malone House in Belfast.
It’s been a while since the last fair so we’re ready and raring to go to get our vintage fix and inject our wardrobes and jewellery boxes with vintage finds for the autumn winter season.
The event will showcase over 45 handpicked, high quality vintage dealers and creative designers specialising in vintage, handcrafted and upcycled fashion, jewellery, bridal wear, furniture, homewares and collectables, scrumptious sweet treats, retro photography and vintage tunes!
Fair organiser Becky Moore has all the vintage sellers well prepped to ensure they have an on-trend edit of their clothes and accessories for the fair to delight all the Vintagistas looking for one-off finds.
“Visitors to FATC are both lovers of vintage and are super fashion-forward which our vintage clothing sellers take note of so the kind of thing they can expect to find at the November event is tartan/plaid, leather, capes and oversized outerwear, leopard print, velvet and lace – all of which are hot on the catwalks right now but FATC provides the perfect opportunity to get your hands on a vintage original which cant be found on the high street so you can be on trend but stand out from the crowd at the same time!” said Becky. “Visitors can also expect to find some fab vintage party frocks and glamorous accessories for the festive season ahead and the lingering Gatsby trend is still hot at FATC so there will be lots of bling!”
The impressive exhibitor list will include Norma Jean Vintage, who will be running a sale on original vintage wedding dresses on the day with prices starting at only £55, Tiny Tower Vintage, specialists in vintage china, linens, eiderdowns and collectible books, Loving Spoonful selling beautiful jewellery designs handcrafted from antique silver spoons and forks, The Little Cupcakery specialising in mini cupcakes baked from quality ingredients with more than a hint of TLC, B-Louise, showcasing exquisite crocheted collars, capelets and evening gloves, Emily Loves Vintage offering beautifully restyled lampshades, limited-edition eclectic jewellery and vintage collage pictures, Bluebird Fabrics who will be selling designer fabrics and crafting accessories, and The Good Room offering semi-precious and silver jewellery.
As well as many of the regular vintage sellers and designers there are some interesting new exhibitors on board so there will be lots of fresh things to see and buy. Visitors will be able to take a break from shopping with a snack in the Malone House tea room or lunch in the Barnett restaurant, and extra retro atmosphere will be provided by the great guys at Bespoke Music Solutions who will be spinning discs throughout the day.
Creative Director Becky Moore says ‘We have come a long way since we started out in 2008 – since then we have staged over 40 fabulous events in Belfast, Lisburn, Bangor, Newry and Cookstown and have appeared in hotels, a music hall, a seaside guest house, a Georgian Mansion, a stately home, a Castle and even on a barge! We have attracted thousands of visitors who have travelled from all over Ireland and have even had visitors from as far as Italy planning their trips to Northern Ireland to coincide with our events! And we’re not just all about the vintage either – our events are also a celebration of the genius crafty and cutting-edge creative talent that we have right here in Ireland and we have provided a platform for Irish crafters and small designers to showcase and sell their products to a discerning and appreciative audience. To celebrate this milestone and special occasion and to thank our customers for all their support over the last 5 years, all visitors to our 3rd November event will be entered into our exclusive prize draw for the chance to win an X-Perience Boudoir Silver Photography Package worth £195! This fantastic prize includes bubbly on arrival, professional make-up, a 2 hour studio photoshoot and 6 retouched images on disc. As an added bonus we are reducing our event admission fee, which was previously £5, to just £3.’
