Celebrating 4 years of vintage glamour

Pioneering the vintage way since 2008, Ireland’s longest running vintage fair, Frock around the clock, will be celebrating 4 fabulous years of vintage glamour at their next event taking place on Sunday 4th November at Malone House, Belfast.

The event will showcase an extravaganza of timeless glamour, reminiscence and vintage treasures for sale from 45 handpicked, high quality vintage dealers and creative designers specialising in vintage and handcrafted clothing, fashion accessories, jewellery, bridal accessories, furniture, homewares and collectables, gifts, scrumptious sweet treats, retro hair & beauty, and vintage tunes! With all this under one roof it will be the perfect place to start shopping for Christmas and to find unique and quality gifts that can’t be found on the high street.

The impressive exhibitor list will include Norma Jean Vintage with vintage dresses and bridal wear from the 1950s to 1980s, Ruffled Ruby, specialists in handcrafted bridal bouquets, Papillon offering beautifully restyled furniture and vintage homewares, Life Is Sweet specialising in scrumptious American baking, Strictly Vintage, showcasing high end American costume jewellery from the 1920s to 1960s, Lizzie B Vintage selling beautiful vintage teacup crafts and floral arrangements, and Strombolitwo with exclusive fashion accessories upcycled from vintage kimono silks.

Creative Director Becky Moore says ‘To celebrate this milestone and special occasion we will be holding Frock around the clock at Malone House, which most of our followers will know as the home of our vintage bridal fairs, but this will be our regular Frock around the clock Vintage Fair so there will be something for everyone. We decided to move the event to the beautiful Georgian mansion house as it provides the perfect backdrop for the fabulous vintage treasures showcased by our exhibitors, and another advantage is that there are lots of free parking spaces available.

As well as many of our favourite vintage sellers and designers we will have some interesting new exhibitors on board so lots of fresh things to see and buy. Visitors will be able to take a break from shopping with a snack in the Malone House tea room or lunch in the Barnett restaurant, and extra vintage atmosphere will be provided by the great guys at Bespoke Music Solutions. As a thank you for all the support over the last 4 years all visitors to this event will be entered into our exclusive prize draw for the chance to win an afternoon tea party hamper worth £150, so that one lucky winner and their friends can have their own celebration courtesy of Frock around the clock. This prize will include a vintage china cake stand, vintage tea set, table linen, bunting, cupcakes, speciality teas, table confetti and more!’

The Frock around the clock 4th Birthday Vintage Fair will take place on Sunday 4th November from 12-5pm at Malone House, Barnett Demesne, Belfast BT9 5PB. Admission costs £5 for adults and £3 for seniors and students which includes entry into the exclusive competition. More information on the event and the exhibitor list can be found at and
