    Happy belated new year everyone! I am happy to tell you 2013 has begun with a very busy start for Violets Attic. So far we have photo shoots, Vintage fairs, Bridal fairs, birthday parties booked and a lot of hen party enquiries.. very exciting! I have been lucky to meet some lovely people and one of which is Becky Moore who is the owner of the vintage business, Decadence.

    Whilst doing some research I came across the Decadence website or Frock around the Clock as some people may know it. Decadence is the creation of vintage enthusiast Becky Moore. Her visits to different vintage fairs in London were enthralled and Becky was keen to bring a similar vintage shopping experience Northern Ireland.  This is when the idea for Frock Around The Clock was born with the first vintage fair taking place November 2008.

    On Sunday we were lucky to be part of our first Valentine’s Vintage Fair at the beautiful Clandeboye Courtyard. We worked along side Vintage Rocks and created a pop-up hair and beauty parlour which turned out amazing! The day was packed with fun and wonderful people and by the time they left the pop-up parlour, they all looked stunning.

    We are looking forward to next months wedding fair at Malone House on Sunday 3rd March. For anyone getting married you will find the Violets Attic girls there promoting our hen party ideas and packages. I also hope to have a look around the fair myself to maybe find some jewellery and a head piece for my own wedding this year!

    Well ladies, that is our latest update..until next time.

    Violet xx

    Hello Alison,

    Here at Violets Attic don’t actually organise the fairs, we only attend any that are happening in the area. At the moment we haven’t any planned at the minute over the summer as the attic is very busy. I will be sure to post up the next date on Facebook and the website coming into Autumn. :)
