Our Vintage Fair:
Thank you for coming!
We're excited to celebrate the glory of vintage (and nautical delights!) with you at our upcoming Vintage Summer Fair! Our theme for this fair is Nautical & Nice. Think marine, ocean, anchors, sealife, stripes, boats, ships, maps and more. It's the perfect theme for Summer in beautiful Victoria! Enjoy shopping and finding charming nautical touches throughout our event.
