Celebrate vintage traders at Judy’s Vintage Trader Awards
Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair and Old Spitalfields Market are joining forces to honour innovative British vintage traders at Judy’s Vintage Trader Awards.
Judy’s Vintage Trader Awards held at Old Spitalfields Market will celebrate the best that British independent retro retail has to offer, showing recognition for the traders, who painstakingly source, collect, design and make vintage fashion, homewares, furniture and collectables.
The awards are set to celebrate inspiring nominees in all areas of trading and managing a small business; from the ‘Audrey’ award for most best fashionable stall to the ‘Eames’ award for the most spectacular furniture stall.
Handmade crafts, homewares and the best brand will also be awarded, with the public also encouraged to come forward and select one stall as their champion in ‘The People’s Choice Award’ category.
With street stylists and bloggers integral to the success and reputation of independent traders and brands, top bloggers from Retro Chick to Frock N Roll Vintage will also be on hand to provide their mark of approval in the ‘Digital Thumbs Up’ category, celebrating London bloggers’ top stall choices.
With all categories scrutinising stock, affordability, creativity, merchandising and customer service, prizes for the overall winner and runners up – as voted for by the public – have been kept practical, from free pitches at markets and fairs across the UK to free advertising in the likes of The Vintage Guide To London, all chosen to support the longevity of British independent traders and keep them in our marketplaces, cities and towns.
