    ...Last year, our Vintage Fairs raised £30,000 for the Hospice and this year, the event will be bigger and better than ever before, with extra stalls in our marquee, by the entrance to the event.

    For those of you that haven't been to our Vintage Fair before, we sell all of the vintage, retro and collectable goods that have been kindly donated to our 19 charity shops around Leeds. You'll even find the odd antique, if you're lucky.

    We also host around 30 stallholders, selling their own, quality vintage treasures.

    You will find vintage clothing, fabrics, accessories, jewellery, furniture, bric-a-brac, books, music, artwork and much more, all dating between 1920s & 1980s.

    In March, you will be able to see a fantastic display of items donated to us by the family of Mr. Joe Taylor, who moved to Alwoodley, Leeds, in 1963. Mr. Taylor spent his National Service working in signals and telecommunications. He collected a wide array of electronic artefacts throughout his life and his family has kindly donated them to us. You can see pictures of Mr. Taylor on our event poster.

    It is donations like these that help to make our Vintage Fairs the unique and interesting events that they are.
