Timeless classics will be on sale at a three-day vintage fair featuring Laura Ashley dresses and Savile Row suits rolling into Westhoughton next month.

The clocks will be turned back for people wanting to get their hands on one-off vintage pieces to add to their collection at the Timeless Treasures event - an extravaganza of vintage and vintage inspired second hand items.

The fair is being staged by The Children's Society to support the work it does.

There will also be a selection of bric-a-brac, jewellery, music and books, this event is the perfect opportunity to pick up something special without spending a fortune.

This free event will be held across three days from Monday April 29 to Wednesday May 1, 2024, at Bytes, the retro gaming arcade in Westhoughton, (41 Market Street, Westhoughton, Bolton, BL5 3G).

The Bolton News: Read some of our top stories:

Timeless Treasures was thought up by Nicola Ashton, shop manager at The Children’s Society Shop in Westhoughton.

She said: “It all started when we got some old vintage clothes donated to the shop.

The Bolton News:

“I’m always doing some sort of fundraising and vintage is really popular right now, so I thought, ‘why don’t we try a special vintage event?’.

“Everyone really loved the idea and when we got the go-ahead, we began saving everything that we could.

The Bolton News: “We’ve had some great items donated and the volunteers are all really excited.

“If it’s a success we hope to do more events like this in the future, because the more we can raise, the more support we can give to young people.”

Refreshments, including tea, coffee, cakes, and juice will be available on each day.

All the items have been saved for more than 10 months in preparation for this unique event and include some gorgeous 1970s Laura Ashley dresses and a couple of 1980s Savile Row suits.

The Bolton News: Men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing, along with homewares, jewellery, and toys and games will be sold at the event.

The Children's Society has charity shops across the country and money raised from sales and donations from the event will go towards supporting some of the most vulnerable children across the country facing abuse, exploitation, and neglect.
