The Greerton Village Vintage & Retro Fayre was held in Greerton Village on Saturday with over 40 stall holders selling a wide variety of vintage and retro items.

The public was encouraged to dress up in Vintage or Retro style and join the Best Dressed to Theme Competition with radio host Mark Eagle as MC at the Greerton Village School rotunda.

Jolene James from The Breeze, Karen Smylie, captain of the BOP Vintage Car Club and Tauranga’s Deputy Mayor Kelvin Clout were the three judges of the best dressed competition.

“I had the pleasure of being one of three judges for the best dressed competition at The Greerton Village Vintage Fayre,” says Kelvin. “Some splendid outfits! Well done to Sally Benning for a well organised community event.”

“It was so nice to see all the lovely ladies dressed up and their men looking very dapper,” says Donna Williamson, owner of the Wildflower Aromas stall. “Great sounds, great vibe, awesome people and an all round fun atmosphere. Thanks Sally for all the work you put in to organising this event. We had a great time.”

High tea was served, much to the delight of a visiting group of Red Hatters with live music from the Cleverwood band playing old favourites from the 60s and 70s. The Waihi Troupe Roving entertainers performed amongst the crowds and there were classic and vintage cars and motorcycles on display.

Selected stores ran a competition with a prize of a seven night trip for two to the Gold Coast up for grabs. The winner will be announced by Mark and Jolene on The Breeze on Monday morning.
