Fabulous Forties, Fun and Frolics!

If you’ve ever watched “Goodnight Sweetheart” and wondered what it would be like to step back in time to the 1940’s…. then you should have been at the Meltham Memories event this past weekend! Vintage Twee had a stall in the Tea Rooms and had the most amazing experience reliving those war time days. From re-enactors dressed as American and British soldiers through to elegant ladies in their fox furs, this event had it all. We were delighted to be surrounded by treasures from this memorable era, even including being served corned beef hash at the local café! Organised by Pam Howarth (see left) from the vintage shop, Oh La La, there were tank displays, parades, singers… and not forgetting the brilliant make up artistry of The Vintage Beauty Parlour who recreated that 40’s look for so many women. Pam and her son Adam certainly had their work cut out- they served tea and cakes to over 700 people during the course of the weekend!   
Vintage Twee’s top selling products of the weekend were the Heart Posies, Recipe Cards and Tea Bag Holders. These products just keep on proving to be a hit with our customers and it re-assures us to know we are doing exactly the things you like! A top use for the Heart Posies is to fill them with pot pourri and hang in the living room or bedroom for a sweet scented experience!

On the hunt for the next live event… keep checking back for regular updates!!

The gorgeous and glamorous Joanne, working those fab vintage gloves!
