THERE was a wave of quirky nostalgia as Crafty Vintage hit Hoghton Tower.

Stall holders shared their classic collectibles, retro wares, handmade items and fine foods for visitors to peruse and taste.

Revellers also enjoyed a pop up cocktail bar and live music. Youngsters were also kept amused with entertainers, a magician and free face painting.

Organiser Laura Johnson said: “I want to say thank you to everyone who came along and helped out at our event. It was a huge success.

“People enjoy it because it is a social gathering for like-minded people. There is something for everyone, with a crafty corner, and pop up magic shows for the children.

“I started the idea of for vintage fairs five years ago and it has grown and it is very popular.”

Crafty Vintage will now visit Brockholes Nature Reserve on Saturday and Sunday July 2 and 3, from 10am until 5pm.
