Anything new at GBVS……?

Well, 2020 was definitely a wash. I hope everyone has been finding vintage activities at home to keep busy. It hasn’t been the same without spending time with all our GBVS friends. Here’s hoping that 2021 brings some “old normal” back to our lives!

At present we are planning for next year’s Newport Art Deco Weekend., however it has been postponed (again!) to 2022. The new dates are June 24th – 26th 2022 and Day and Weekend tickets are on sale now. You can learn further about it at the NADW Website. Until then, we’re looking forward to seeing you at other events this summer!
