Stockton’s Chic Vintique Market is Heading to its New Home

Screen Shot 2015-04-01 at 13.43.37THE enormously popular Chic Vintique specialist market comes back to Stockton this month with a marquee on the High Street packed with gorgeous gifts and goodies.


Quality vintage, retro clothes, collectibles and handcrafted gifts will be in abundance at the specialist market which will take place on Stockton High Street from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 11 April.


Admission to Chic Vintique is free. While shoppers browse around the 45 stalls they will be entertained by singer Lilli De Carlo performing 1940s swing music as well as being able to sample refreshments in Alice’s Vintage Tea Room.


Shoppers visiting the market can make the most of free parking for the first hour in all Stockton Town Centre’s short stay, off-street car parks.


Richard Poundford, Stockton Council’s Head of Regeneration and Economic Development, said: “Whether it’s a gift or a treat for yourself you’ll love the range of beautiful clothing, home wares and jewellery at this popular market. There is also a vintage tea room and live music to keep you entertained whilst you browse all the wonderful stalls.


“With free parking for the first hour and only £1 for the next two hours it’s never been easier to come into the new look Town Centre.  Why not take the opportunity to visit the markets on the High Street, peruse the many independent shops, eateries and cafes which are now based here and soak up the atmosphere while taking a look at the new water feature in the centre of the town.”


Organised by Stockton Council and BR Events, Chic Vintique is part of the jam-packed programme of specialist markets heading to Stockton High Street over coming months to attract visitors and shoppers into the town and to complement what the popular weekly market has to offer.


Lovers of Chic Vintique should make dates in their diary as the market will return to Stockton Town Centre on 4 July and 10 October.
