Belfast’s best loved vintage shopping event, Frock Around The Clock Vintage Fair returns this Sunday with an abundance of vintage glamour, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
A bright spot on the horizon of a long and dreary January, the highly anticipated February vintage fair promises not to disappoint with a line-up of 50 handpicked Irish vintage dealers and creative designers offering a glittering array of vintage and handmade fashion, jewellery, furniture, homewares, collectables, sweet treats and much more. Whether you are looking for a fabulous frock for a Valentine’s date or a gift for a loved one, this is the place to find something unique that can’t be found on the high street.
Ladies will love the Valentine’s prize draw that Frock Around The Clock will be running on the day in which the lucky winner will receive a fabulous Glamour Package worth £180 to include a makeover with Make-up by Alicia and a photoshoot with X-perience Boudoir, a manicure by Dazzle Me With Your Tips, hair styling at Ashby Hair Lounge, a glamorous feather headpiece from B Ford, and Mary Quant lace gloves and diamante heart necklace from Decadence! Every visitor to the vintage fair will be entered into the draw and the winner will be notified on the day. The gents will also be eligible to enter the draw so it is a great opportunity to win a fantastic prize to impress the lady in their life!
As always the event will include a selection of new sellers as well as old favourites to keep things fresh for returning visitors. Some of the newcomers are Off One who will be selling unique artworks and bespoke furniture, The Scarlet Button who specialise in vintage buttons in a wide range of colours and styles, and Finders Keepers Couture who create vintage inspired headpieces and handbags using Irish crochet techniques. If your New Year resolution was to learn a new skill then help is at hand as Studio Nineteen will be taking bookings for their newly launched sewing and knitting workshops and the Burlesque Boudoir will be on hand to tell you how you can learn some seductive moves, get fit and have fun at the same time!
