Last weekend December 5th & 6th was Open Cultures Winter Arts Market . Held at St. Georges Hall in Liverpool City Centre.
St Georges hall is a grand venue and the 200+ artists and makers filled the venue from the main hall to the concert room ,which is where C&V Boutique had our stand.
The Concert room was filled with lots of Vintage delights from established vintage brands including Mary Jones Vintage & Glamour and PillBox Vintage . There where vintage inspired stalls and my particular favourite ,vintage china up-cycled into pin cushions ,bird feeders and traditional 3 tier cake stands.
The weekend was really busy and I’m looking forward to next years market already.
