In pictures: Lancashire Vintage Market

The vintage market is in full swing with stallholders selling everything from glass shoes to a Zorki 4K 1977 Russian camera.

Stallholders have been telling us how popular the vintage market is in Preston. Jan from Kath’s Fabrics runs a regular stall through the week in Preston and she said: “We didn’t have a stall last year but saw how successful it was so thought we would see how it goes with our more detailed-vintage style prints.”

The vintage market is a great way to promote the creative minds of Lancashire and encourage customers to be involved in something a little different. Caroline Finnigan from Carry Yarn Stitching wants to inspire people to be creative: “I’m a crafts teacher and specialise in knitting, amongst other things. I have a passion about crafts and want to encourage people to take up a craft”.

One stall that stood out to us was Walking on Glass, run by Alexis Valentine. Alexis was keen to design glass specifically for the Preston vintage market. He has created glasses fit for a king and queen, as well as a glass shoe, which is the kind of eccentric piece of clothing you imagine seeing at London Fashion Week.
