Also on 29th September in Brum … Oxfam’s Virtuous Vintage Fair


Birmingham’s vintage vixens and retro revellers are in for a treat, as the city’s Oxfam fundraising team brings its first Virtuous Vintage Fair to town.

Taking place on Saturday 29 September 1-5pm at The Rainbow in Digbeth, the event will see a whole host of stall holders from across the region selling everything from stylish homeware to trendy trinkets.

Alongside numerous stalls will be a vintage inspired hair and beauty stylist, on hand to create cool and classic looks.  In addition, there will be a clothes customisation workshop, offering shoppers top tips on how to get the retro look for less.  On top of this will be a live DJ set, as well as a complimentary welcome drink and raffle taking place throughout the day.  

For fashionistas looking to really bag a bargain, the Virtuous Vintage team will also be running Oxswap between 2-4pm – a clothes swapping extravaganza, offering visitors the chance to exchange three of their own washed and ironed items, for those  brought by other shoppers. 

Sara Fernie-Jones, event coordinator for the Oxfam Birmingham Fundraising group, commented: “We wanted to organise an event that people would really enjoy, while raising much needed funding for Oxfam.  All of the money that we raise through the Virtuous Vintage Fair will go straight to Oxfam, allowing people in developing coutries to help themselves & achieve a better quality of life”

Entry into the event will be £3 per person.  For more information on the Virtuous Vintage Fair, as well as forthcoming fundraising events, find our page on Facebook at ‘Oxfam Birmingham Fundraising Group’.
