A Vintage Fair held in Bradford on Avon raised more than £300 for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
The Retro, Vintage and Nostalgic Fair, on Sunday, had over 30 stalls offering products reflecting a bygone era.
Made in Bradford on Avon supported the event, which featured clothing, make-up artists, gifts, wall plaques, traditional sweets and cakes, fabrics, bric-a-brac and photography.
The organiser, Wellie O’Driscoll, said: “The day was a great success, with visitors coming from all around the area.
“It was great to see so many people supporting such a great cause. We raised money for a local charity, visitors browsed around and shopped.”
Some of those involved included Bradford on Avon’s Allan Clifford, with his paintings, Matthew Neal of Calne and his Heritage Picture Room, and Warminster’s Niki Carpenter. There was also doll’s house furniture, art deco paintings and vintage Christmas decorations.
Made in Bradford on Avon is a co-operative project highlighting local industries and talent.
