At the same time, there is a contemporary craft fair, in St George's hall. Vintage Vic is having a stall there. I shall be selling my handmade from vintage illustrations, greetings cards and my ready to frame and framed vintage illustrations.
On 30th September, Vintage Vic's will be selling all this and lovely vintage items, such as books, games, china and anything else I decide to throw in, at the Whitstable Past & Present Fair.
