Kizzy Lou Vintage specialises in 1930s-1950s clothes jewellery and accessories, some original and some new items made from vintage and retro materials.

We have other stalls that will be selling vintage and retro items from the 60s, 70s and 80s as well as some craft items with a retro feel.

Entry to the event is free for buyers and there will be a small pop-up retro tea room selling tea, coffee and cakes.

We hope, in bringing this event to a totally new venue, lots of people will experience the Vintage scene for the first time and have a fun shopping experience, with a vintage vibe.

It will also give people, who haven’t yet visited City Arts, a chance to drop in and look at the plans for transforming the building, and pick up a programme of workshops & events.
