Hay Does Vintage returns for another year. Bigger, more tempting, and even more vintage. Town of Temptation begins June 30th, and is an event not to be missed. 

Hay Does Vintage returns to Hay-on-Wye with an even bigger vintage event, ‘Town of Temptation’ on Sunday 30th June.  This time Hay Does Vintage will be taking place in four separate venues, a marquee in the Market Square, the Buttermarket, St John’s Place and the Parish Hall all within a short walk around Hay.  Jo and Naomi, the founders, are also keen for people to appreciate the huge choice of antique and vintage shops that the town has to offer.  ‘Hay has been quietly building itself a reputation as a centre for vintage excellence for some time and we want to highlight that to a wider audience in a fun and light-hearted way’ says Naomi.

What is offered

Apart from encouraging visitors to wander between the four venues, aided with their ‘Town of Temptation’ map, there will be an interactive fashion show with models in charity sourced vintage clothes styled by Hay Does Vintage intern and local fashion student Lucy Scott.   Like last year, the charity shops will be open on the Sunday and reserving their vintage stock to sell on the day.
