All is fair at the Kootenay Chicks Vintage Faire

The Hart Hall is full of vintage lovers and there is an abundance of quality treasures waiting to accent your home today and Sunday.

It’s all things lovely at the first ever Kootenay Chicks Vintage Faire in Nelson today. The Hart Hall is full of vintage lovers and there is  an abundance of quality treasures waiting to accent your home. Whether it be vintage, farm house, antique or made from reclaimed material, everything in the faire was juried by organizers Robin Gallant, Laurel Colins, Jenna Cowan and Holly Jordahl.

There are over 20 vendors, mostly local and one from Kelowna.  The fair has been a huge success in the first two hours with seemingly hundreds of people crossing the Hart Hall threshold. People have come from the Okanagan and many from Sandpoint, Idaho specifically for the event.

Birch n’Burlap owner Robin Gallant sponsored the event and is very happy with the high number of people who are showing up.  “I was hoping for this type turn out but I wasn’t expecting it. I’ve already had people ask to sign up for next year’s event even though the date has yet to be set.”

Gallant was the master mind behind the fair and as a group of four, their combined creativity seems to be a grand hit.

If you’re feeling peckish, there are scrumptious cupcakes and sweets plus high quality tea and coffee.

The fair is open until 6 pm tonight. Vendors will be restocking their shelves to open again Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. located in the Hart Hall at 501 Carbonate Street in Nelson.
