Win a kitsch print

While her school friends’ bedroom walls were plastered were pictures of Duran Duran in the 1980s, owner of The Picture Emporium Sam Hart “had a weird collection of Victorian grannies” on hers.

Win a stall at Horsham vintage fair

Belle’s Events is hosting its first vintage and retro fair on 26 May and is offering one lucky Vintage Brighton reader the chance to win a stall for the day, plus a side-bar advert online.

Belle’s was founded when organisers Kelly and Joss Wickon started hiring out their VW Beetle ‘Belle’ to wedding parties in early 2012 and identified a growing demand for vintage events.

“I’ve been blown away by some of the divine vintage and retro ideas I’ve come across at our fairs”, says Kelly. “The wedding events have given me taste for running a more general vintage and retro fair as there is so much scope.”

The Horsham fair will offer vintage and retro fashion, accessories, furniture, kitchenalia, homewares and toys, as well a pop-up vintage tea room, beauty parlour, photo booth and makers’ craft corner.

For your chance to win a pitch at the fair (worth £48) plus a side-bar advert on the event homepage (worth £30), simply leave a comment on this post telling us about your favourite vintage fair find. Deadline for entries is 28 March and a winner will be picked at random and contacted via the e-mail address used to comment during the week commencing 1 April.

Win £75 to spend at Truc Vintage

If you’re scratching your head over what to get for a vintage-loving friend or relative this Christmas, you may just find your answer at Truc vintage.

An online boutique specialising in antique, vintage, retro and secondhand fashion, accessories, gifts and homewares, Truc takes its name from the French for ‘thingummy’ or ‘whatsit’.

Owner Lindsey Jones explains the philosophy behind the brand: “Ultimately we offer ‘beautiful old things’ of varying kinds. There are only two criteria: Firstly, they must be old or pre-loved and secondly, they must be gorgeous, unique or interesting.”

Among the treasures to be discovered are Italian and Scandinavian art glass pieces, retro kitchen and barware, quirky table lamps and vintage books. For catwalk-conscious vintage lovers, regularly updated collections are curated with a nod to the current season’s key trends, with fashion stories for AW12 including country styling, oriental luxury and purple – the colour of the season.

Found out how you could win £75 to spend at www.truc-shop.com by reading the full post…
