Blaenavon Winter Wonderland

This weekend Blaenavon are holding their annual Winter Wonderland weekend. It promises to be a dry crisp weekend and great fun for all.
Vintage Vision shop in Blaenavon has a vast amount of vintage stock and if you can't find what you want in the Abergavenny shop, this would be a great opportunity to visit Blaenavon and call in on Lydia who will be delighted to help you find what you need.

8.15 Sunday morning, both my camera and I were bleary eyed, when I spied Lydia with Janet and her husband (hardworking new volunteer) putting the finishing touches to the Market Hall.

We are very sad to say Goodbye to Tracey and her family this year, as they are unable to provide and serve delicious cakes in our cafe area in the future due to work committments. Thank you so much for all the hard work you have done for Vintage Vision and good luck for the future.

K Shoes by Clarks of Street.

The 1960s made a radical break with the past. when London began to swing 'with it' or 'fab' places being Carnaby Street in the West End and the King's Road, Chelsea.
The 'sensation of America' came to Britain in 1961 when Chubby Checker's record 'Lets Twist Again' stayed in the Singles chart for 30 weeks. The Twist became the most popular dance of the decade - now couples danced separately.
These 'funky' 60s K Skips shoes by Clarks would certainly have been worn during these fab times and we have several pairs of them up for grabs at our Vintage Fayre in Abergavenny Market Hall, this Sunday.
