In a fabulous Mother’s Day celebration, there will be 20 fabulous stalls of vintage clothing, accessories and home-wear, a fantastic live swing singer, Steve Conway and an on-site vintage hair salon, Le Petit Salon from the Caversham Retro Rooms, to leave every lady feeling pampered to perfection. And as an added treat we want to offer every mother who comes along with their daughter, half price entry as our way of celebrating you on this special day. Then to top off a lovely afternoon in Henley, take your ticket from the fair to Hot Gossip to a get an offer of buy one hot drink, get one free.
Each of our 20 stall holders is an independent local business with a passion for all things vintage, who want to share a slice of their world with you all. So if you’re looking for a last minute gift or just want to treat yourself, you’re bound to find something great. Every dealer brings something different and individual flare for their collections. Visitors will find an array of ‘one of a kind’ items spanning from 1900 to 1980. Whether it’s 60’s chic, 80’s accessories or a 40’s tea party that you’re after, Ritzy Vintage Fair will not disappoint. Vintage fashion is a great way to develop a totally unique personal style which is something everyone seeks, so Ritzy is striving to give you all something no one else can.
After the success of last years In Vogue Fair’s, it is exciting to have it back in the town. The fair is a new Henley venture of local fashion student Mary Skinner. “Vintage has always been a passion of mine and since graduating from a degree in fashion in 2014, I have been working in the industry. I have always been excited by finding a vintage gem and love spending the day rummaging through rails at fairs. My love of attending fairs led me to organising my own. It’s really exciting to now be on number four and to have met so many interesting people who just as passionate about vintage as I am. The support from the local community is always important so we are extremely pleased to have Lorraine Hillier, the fantastic Mayor and Vintage Queen of Henley, officially opening the event. Join us for a great day of vintage treasure hunting.”
