Review Of The Hebden Bridge Vintage Fair
Victoria Benn, Features Writer
Vintage posters at the Hebden Bridge Vintage Fair
Once again the arty and eclectic Yorkshire town of Hebden Bridge turned up the dial on the cool factor, offering visitors all the usual delights of fabulous
The lovely Kendall on cocktails
independent shops, great eateries and inspiring street theatre, plus - for one weekend only - there was the remarkable addition of the bi-annual Vintage Fair.

Hosted in the Town Hall, and with nearly twenty stalls selling a veritable treasure trove of vintage fashion, furniture, jewellery, ceramics, vinyl, lighting and art work - including many rare and original cinema posters - the atmosphere was buzzing with colour, energy and excitement.

Live music came from an Andrew Sisters tribute band, the Carleton Sisters, for whom this was a first vintage fair appearance, but which nonetheless shoppers and stall holders found captivating. Their harmonious voices and repertoire of classics from the 1940s, 50s and 60s offered the perfect backdrop for browsing and shopping. The lovely Kendall was once again to be found mixing the cocktails and 'mocktails' in the pop up bar, ensuring that everyone was greeted with a smile.

Some of the most exciting items on sale included an original Italian Some Like It Hot cinema poster, a genuine Victorian riding habit and 1960s space age style chair. A vintage rocking horse also provided much fun to younger shoppers.
