The Royal Wedding and other important events in April
With Prince William and Kate Middleton set to walk down the aisle on April 29th many of us have started to plan what to do with our time off over the bank holiday period and we at TMV have some suggestions:
If you are lucky enough to be off work between Easter and the Royal Wedding/May Day weekends then come along to the vintage fair at the University of Essex Colchester Campus on Thursday 28th April. It is open to all (not just students) and costs just £1 each to get in. Inside you will find an array of stalls selling all kinds of loveliness including Truly Madly Vintage and our lovely friends from Make, Do & Mend and Sparrow and Nighingale. We're all really looking forward to it so make sure you say hi when you see us!
On the Friday we will no doubt all be glued to our television screeens (those of us who are not going up to see the procession anyway) eager to see the events unfold and to see the most important thing of all - Kate's DRESS! With so many rumours abound about who has designed it we can't wait to see what future-Queen Catherine has chosen, knowing that the whole world is watching she is sure to have chosen something spectacular yet classic.
On Saturday 30th April the celebrations continue with the Chelmsford Vintage and Handmade Market at the Shire Hall on Chelmsford High Street. If you have not come along before then make sure you don't miss this opportunity to find out what our regulars know - that this is the best market in Chelmsford with a fabulous range of vintage clothing and accessories for men and women, gorgeous handmade jewellery, bags, greeting cards, candles and much, much more! You can also stop for a rest and enjoy a lovely cup of tea in a beautiful vintage tea cup and a slice of deicious cake in the vintage tea room - lovely!
Check out the website for the Truly Madly Vintage and Truly Madly Vintage Home opening hours over the bank holidays and come along to see us to join our celebrations in store where we will have some great limited time offers to mark this very special Royal Wedding.
