This weekend we were at the second annual Vintage Festival at London’s Southbank centre that featured a whole array of vintage themed entertainment. We staged very our own tea room at the festival located within the Vintage Market to launch our very own Crown Vintage® paint range. Our tent was shared with wonderful vintage caterers, Jam & Tea, who were on hand to provide classic British refreshments to a well attired crowd. Most festival goers and press joined us to relax after spending time browsing the vintage goods on offer at the market to take a look at the full range of Crown Vintage® paint that was on display.
The Crown Vintage® colours proved popular with everyone and many singled out Enamel Green™, Mean Mustard® and Fade to Grey® as favourites. It also provided us with a great opportunity to meet our customers and provide some advice on how best to use the Crown Vintage® paints at home to gain a similar effect to those featured in our inspirational photography We were lucky enough to have festival organisers and Crown Vintage® range collaborators, Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway, join us to discuss the colours over tea and scones.
Later in the afternoon we took the opportunity to explore the festival and gain inspiration amongst the plethora of retro delights that were on show. A wide variety of bespoke homewares from across the 20th century, such as original 50s Danish furniture and lighting from the 30s was available to buy at the event. The range of goods on display was staggering and if you looked in the right places you could pick up unique pieces that would work as ideal props in a room painted with colours from the Crown Vintage® range.
