2013 sees Carmarthen-
It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like A Vintage Christmas….
Preparations are underway for the next of the popular Flea Markets organised by Towy Events at Carmarthen Showground.
The event on Sunday November the 17th from 10.00am to 4.00pm is the perfect place to buy vintage Christmas presents that won’t be found on the high street.
Vintage costume jewellery will be amongst the ‘best buys’ with a huge selection of
pieces available to buy for just a couple of pounds each. Whilst beautiful in their
own right -
Enamel flower pins and rhinestone broaches look great when strung together to make a statement necklace. Earrings too can be used to make an unusual bracelet. Vintage costume jewellery is also great for decorating picture frames and even your Christmas tree, plus you’ll find instructions on how to make all these things with a quick search of the internet.
It’s not just vintage jewellery that can be up-
Many of the exhibitors at the Flea Market also carry small pieces of furniture that offer a wealth of opportunities for giving a new lease of life. With just a coat of paint you’ll achieve the shabby chic look that’s so popular at the moment.
Meanwhile collectors will find something to interest them at every turn. From toys to military memorabilia, prints and vintage garden tools there really is something for everyone.
