Frock Around The Dock

Here are some photographs from the 'Titanic Vintage Affair' event Arbee Cards took part in on Sunday 1st April. The vintage fair was on the lower deck of The Barge, which is permanently moored on Belfast's River Lagan. An unusual venue for a vintage fair - but a wonderful day!

The lower deck of The Barge, packed with visitors and vintage sellers.

The theme of the event was both to celebrate Belfast and the Titanic anniversary, with lots of vintage, Edwardian/Steampunk inspired art, fashion & crafts and all things Maritime. With the venue being short on space, there was only a handful of sellers (including us, lucky enough to get a chance to take part!) but the talent and standard of design was incredible.

Rua Rose's Land Ahoy telescope necklace - a miniature that works!

The event was organised by the wonderful NI's Decadence Vintage, who created the Frock Around The Clock fairs.  I'm not a natural boat lover but loved every minute of this one off Frock Around The Dock special event!
