Another new exhibitor to our Seaside Frock Vintage Fair this Sunday is Bangor artist and businesswoman Shelley Cave and her husband Colin with their interior design and decorative art business, Juniper and Stone. Regulars to our events will have met Shelley at our very first vintage fairs at the Wellington Park Hotel in 2008 and 2009, and then again at our Retro Rooms Show earlier this year.
Shelley says 'growing up in an arty, crafty home, it’s no wonder that scouring antique shops, junk shops, auctions and skips has led to a life long passion for old, unique, vintage items with a story to tell. Nothing pleases us more than being able to breathe new life into these wonderful but unwanted items making them beautiful and loved once more. At Juniper and Stone we love all things vintage, not just furniture, and if it’s not perfect just as it is, we’ll turn it into something else like our cushions, handbags and corsages, bunting, table runners and napkins. They’re all made from vintage and vintage inspired textiles. Recycling at its most creative and fun'.
Juniper and Stone will be taking over one of the outbuildings at Cairn Bay Lodge this Sunday so if you are looking for something beautiful, unique and unusual for your home, be sure to come along early to catch the bargains.
