We had a fantastic weekend at Stowford Meadows, near Ilfracombe on 20/21 September.
Buzz had worked really hard with Gary to get the cab of the motorhome looking amazing.
Pip from Devon Custom Trimming worked her magic once again and the red leather seats looked awesome. It was great to see her at the show too. We had the tan seats on display as well as the red in the cab.
Our pitch was next to Ian and Nadine from South West Classic VW’s so there was a lovely chilled vibe to the weekend. We decided to camp with the family on the Saturday night and were joined by some other friends from the North Devon VW Club.
Saturday morning was really busy and we had lots of interest in the motorhomes. It was great to get some “live” feedback and chat to so many people. We ran a free competition to win a Retro Tourer T-shirt and are currently in the process of contacting the lucky winner.
Yummies of Braunton, supplied us with a fab selection of retro inspired sweets to give to our customers over the weekend. We have hidden the fish bowl style glass jar of sweets in many of the photos so see if you can spot them!
Marion had a lot of ladies looking at her Lindy Bop dresses, many of them reminiscing as they owned similar styles “back in the day”. They were surprised at how reasonably priced they were.
The banners and flag came from the Bannershop (www.bannershop.co.uk), they were designed by Steve from Design Monster in South Molton (www.design-monster.co.uk) and taken from the original design by Mike Turney. We were really impressed with how great they looked.
We thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and are thrilled to be invited back again next year. The site put on free food, drinks and music over the weekend as well as classic car and tractors on display as well as the caravans and motorhomes that are for sale.
Hope to see you there next year!
