Attendees at the vintage fair

Liverpool’s Big Vintage and Music Fair returned to the city last weekend with the promise of more in the lead-up to Christmas.

Event manager Kevin-Lee Essery hailed the event at the Bluecoat Arts Centre in the city as a big success. 

He said: “We had some of the best brands from all over Liverpool selling clothes, jewellery and homeware. We had over 40 stalls.

“We also had the clothes swap taking place upstairs which always works out really well. There was also live music playing and this time we had a fabulous, vintage-esqe performer.”

Attendees were given free cupcakes and cocktails courtesy of Harvey Nichols on arrival.

The event’s unique clothes swap allows customers to receive vouchers in return for their old clothes. They could then use these vouchers to purchase other people’s unwanted garments.

Kate Fairbrother said she loved having her stall, Pretty Little Cakes, at the event: “I am so happy to be a part of these events, the day was great and I can’t wait for the next one. I’m just happy I get to sell there.”

The next event will be held on Sunday, 10th November and will be a more festive affair in the lead-up to Christmas.

Talking about the Christmas and Vintage Festival, Essery said: “It will be along the same lines as usual, but this time we’ll have Christmas cakes and mulled wine on offer as well as a winter barbecue.

“So we’re hoping it’s going to be just as successful as the last.”
