Vintage treasures could reap rewards for Grove House's popular fashion fair
PUBLISHED: 12:01 15 January 2011
IF you have any vintage fashion or accessories stored in your loft or the back of your cupboards, Grove House needs you.
The Vintage Fashion and Accessories Fair comes back to Harpenden Public Halls on Sunday, February 20, for the third time and this time Grove House will also benefit.
Along with up to 40 specialist dealers from around the UK, Grove House will be selling good-quality vintage clothing and accessories, both men’s and women’s, from the 1920s through to 1970s.
Accessories can range from belts, shoes, ties, scarves, jewellery, hats, gloves and bags to home and kitchen ware.
If you have any interesting vintage items hiding in your attic and you would like to donate them to help raise money to support local people living with cancer, please ring Liz Hizli at the hospice on 01727 731008 email@example.com to arrange a convenient time to deliver them.
Liz requests that donations come to Grove House in Waverley Road and not to the hospice shops. Items will be gratefully accepted before Thursday, February 17.
The Harpenden Vintage Fashion and Accessories Fair has proved a massive hit with visitors from across the area. It is one of the events organised by Hertfordshire Vintage Fairs, a company which provides the county with its vintage fix and claims to be as good as London-based vintage fairs.
Proprietor Jenny Titmuss said: “Grove House is personally very close to my heart and if the success of my fairs can help the hospice raise money, then I’ll do anything I can to help.”
The vintage fair runs from 10am to 4pm and admission is £2.50.
