"Like Narnia, Frock Around The Clock can pop up in the most peculiar of locations. From country houses to city centre music halls, the fairs are known for attracting vintage magpies, fashionistas and home-makers with a taste for the quirky. Every stall will have been lovingly adorned with trinkets, treats and delights from across the eras, guaranteed to bring some opulence to your wardrobe or home. A place to meet and make friends, FATC is a jewel just waiting to be discovered" - Lucy Dougan : Whistle Bait Babies Burlesque.
"I adore shopping at Frock Around The Clock vintage fairs! As a lover of vintage clothes and jewellery I usually have to travel far and wide to visit small vintage stores to find unique pieces but with FATC they all come to me! It's not about vintage finds it's vintage found! The stalls are always beautifully displayed and the whole fair flows with glamour and nostalgia. A fabulous shopping experience" - Katrina Doran : Sugahfix.
"I have been attending the Frock Around the Clock events since they started up back in 2008. The vintage fairs have such a fantastic atmosphere - you really feel like you have stepped back in time; surrounded by pretty vintage dresses, collectible furniture and homewares, stylish jewellery from a bygone era; and even handmade goodies! I love taking my time going around all the wonderful stalls and buying some really unique gems" - Ruth Maguire : Willow Lane blogger.
"As someone who is passionate about anything vintage & handmade, the Frock Around The Clock Fairs are a thoroughly amazing day out. From the moment I step into the stunning, unique venues the buzzing atmosphere, friendly exhibitors and one of a kind treasures never fail to amaze. From jewellery & clothing to furniture & trinkets, I always come away with bags full of goodies and bargains. I highly recommend the fairs for anyone looking for something special or even just for a fabulous and fun day out" - Oonagh O'Neill at Whatsonni.
"My daughter and I are very proud of the fact that we have been attending Becky’s ‘Frock Fairs’ in all their guises since she first followed her dream to run Northern Ireland’s Leading Vintage Fairs. We appreciate the planning that goes into choosing the right venue, always providing a stunning background for the items on offer. I go along for the lovely sociable atmosphere and to view and buy from a cornucopia of beautiful, unique and affordable items from the past. Many of the craft stalls are of exhibition standard and all the vendors are talented, approachable and friendly people. My daughter loves seeking one-of-a-kind cocktail dresses, collectible jewellery pieces and glamorous vintage accessories. She frequently shops in London, especially in Brick Lane and Shoreditch Market, but we agree that our very own Frock Fairs beat them all. A local event not to be missed!" - Terri and Thayna McLaughlin, Ballyholme.
"Frock Around The Clock is now a well established, successful and very much anticipated bookmark for all the vintage and crafty followers in Ireland. The fairs are well thought out, planned and with an exciting balance for everyone - you might find vintage treasures, inspirational ideas, up and coming crafty artists, or that perfect present.
The events offer a much needed format to show, share, sell and shop in a atmosphere of friendship and fellowship - how wonderful to meet so many fellow and like minded travellers in the one venue! I suppose the success of the fairs is down to friendship, meeting new and old friends, and of course the possibility of a real FIND - those rare things or objects for which you have been searching for! Finds are becoming harder to locate nowadays, so we are very grateful to Frock Around The Clock to bring so many under one roof. OMG! This is what I have been looking for! This is it! - these are just some of the exclamations you will hear at the fairs.
The fairs are packed with stall holders and excited buyers and everyone is so friendly and always ready to show their finds, or where they bought it, or which stall might have something to suit you. As a selective vintage collector for the 1940s-50s, we at Living Vintage have never left a fair empty handed. The array of sellers is amazing with new ones always popping up. Frock Around The Clock Fairs are a most enjoyable way to spend an afternoon, in most pleasant venues with lots of delicious refreshments available. We look forward so much to the next one!" - Bridget Owens : The Living Vintage Co.
