TinTrunk is always in attendance at The Vintage Village at Stockport Market Hall. Find me at Room at the Top Vintage Goods, upstairs at The Produce Hall directly opposite the Market Hall.
I have lots of fabulous items that haven't been listed online yet, plus plenty of treasures that are impractical or bothersome to ship.
We've gone totally Anglomanic for ...
The Vintage Village WESTWOOD HO! FAIR
When: Sunday 14th April 2013, 10.00 am to 4.00 pm
Where: Stockport Market Hall SK1 1EU
How much: £1 entry, under 12s FREE
Dame Vivienne Westwood, we salute you! And we're claiming her as one of our own since she was born in Tintwistle in 1941, at that time within the county borders of Cheshire. And it's Vivienne's birthday on 8th April - two jolly good reasons to dedicate our April fair to her.
Our suggested dress code for this fair is Westwood pieces if you are lucky enough to have any! Otherwise, we'd love to see some tartan, Harris tweed, sheepskin, sharp tailoring, punk styles, and, most of all, ingenious and artfully careless combinations of any of the above. Make Dame Vivienne proud with your heroically original ensembles!

Movie Matinée Vivienne Westwood: Art Lives
Presented by Stockport Market
Hourly, from 1.00 pm, in our pop-up cinema in the Produce Hall
This 1990 documentary "features interviews with Westwood, McLaren, Terence Conran, Peter York and various others. It is a career-spanning retrospective that follows Westwood’s extraordinary story from the little village in Cheshire where she was born, down to London and through the turbulence and confrontation of the punk era, right up to the moment where her designs, perhaps ironically, grace the walls of an exhibition in a locale synonymous with Britain’s artistic establishment, the Victoria and Albert Museum."
AND we're thrilled to announce that the resident DJ at Peter Hook's Fac 251 nightclub, Señor Jamie El Muerto, will be playing a specially tailored, late 70s - early 80s set of the hippest sounds from that era for your listening and dancing pleasure. Catch him from 12.00 pm to close in our Food Court at the front of the Market Hall.

Even fashion folk get hungry - although they like to pretend they don't - and we've got that covered in fine style too. Revive yourself with an award-winning gourmet hot pie from Lord of the Pies and please give a warm welcome to VV newcomers Honest Crust, who promise to serve us "hand crafted sourdough pizzas made using the finest local and Italian ingredients all baked in 90 seconds in our mobile wood fired oven."
Kandoo Mobile Coffee will be on hand with their top quality espresso-based beverages, and it wouldn't be The Vintage Village without Stuart Thornley Cake Design providing something sweet and delightful for afters.
