After the fun Pip & Pantalaimon Lingerie had at Vintage Nostalgia festival a couple of months ago, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get out for a weekend at Retro Festival in Newbury, especially as it’s only half an hour from our HQ in Oxfordshire.
The weekend began on Friday afternoon with glorious sunshine and an exciting buzz around the site as enthusiasts, traders and exhibitors filled the showground and began to set the scene for a very enjoyable weekend. We set up shop in the enormous Vintage Village tent selling our vintage and retro inspired lingerie direct to you lovely lot!
Once Saturday came around the festival was in full swing, there was an amazing show of cars and the sun was shining.
We managed to get away from the stand for a few minutes to watch the RAF Spitfire fly past and the Tigers children motorcycle display team.
By Saturday afternoon the great British festival weather set in and it turned wet, however the rain couldn’t dampen spirits as the vintage style lingerie shopping, dancing and general merriment were in full swing. Our brand new Biscotti Corselette was a huge success, as well as our new seamed stockings. Several sizes had sold out by the end of the weekend!
The buzz and excitement carried through the weekend fuelled by the outstanding live performances in the Spitfire Pavillion, the Black Hanger and the Ricky Tick stage. We met so many fabulous customers, new and old, as well as pin up beauticians and stylist and true vintage aficionados!!
If you’ve not been before then get your tickets booked and come and see us next year where you’ll be able to touch and feel our retro style lingerie in the flesh, meet us and chat all things vintage and lingerie. See you next year Retro Festival!
