A feast for the senses
Every first Sunday of the month the main High Street area of West Norwood celebrates the West Norwood Feast, hosting food, retro, artisan and gardening markets. We were selling as part of the 'Retro Village' where there was around fifteen stalls selling everything from vintage clothing to glassware and kitchenalia, vintage toys and books and retro posters.
Retro Village held in Rosebery Auction Rooms Courtyard
It was colder than it has been recently, but we saw lot's of faces old and young venturing around the retro village and I think it's the friendliest place we've been yet!
Lindy Hop Dancers in the Retro Village
Not only are there stalls to excite your senses, but also entertainment and workshops going on too.
Check out the video we recorded above of dancers doing the Lindy Hop, a popular dance in the 20s and 30s. There were children's entertainers and a great fancy dress parade and competition, for the small ones to take part in and a fantastic steel band playing outside St. Luke's Church.
Our stall at the November West Norwood Feast
We were selling women's vintage clothing, as well as shoes, bags, scarves and jewellery. We also had the odd dash of kitchen ware with old biscuit and flour tins, and some beautiful scarlet 1960s short glasses and Poole two tone pottery.
Our collection of vintage shirts, jumpers and blazers
We can't wait to come back again when we're not selling to fully view and enjoy the entire market.
