More than 1,000 people turned up at Worth the Weight’s vintage fair.

Steam put on the event, which saw its rails of clothing and accessories quickly thin down at the popular sale.

Customers were charged by the weight of their items and no single item cost more than £15.

Victoria Abbosh, 37, came from Cirencester: “I love second-hand clothes and vintage clothes and I heard about the sale and thought I’d come down. I found a denim skirt, a nice jumper and a dress. I’ll definitely come again.”

Hollie Gough, 21, of Upper Stratton, said: “I saw it on Facebook and I thought it would be fun. This is my first one and it’s really cool. The weighing of the items is really good because it can usually end up being expensive.”

Kirsty Munday, 33, of South Marsden, went to help her sister shop: “I’ve spent a lot of money on myself, a mix of things like sports stuff and dresses.”

Event manager Barry Watson said: “This is the first time we have been to Swindon. It has been fairly successful, we saw a stream of customers. Our Early Bird tickets were sold out and we have a steady procession of customers.

“I would suspect that we would return to Swindon. My instinct tells me that we will.”
