The annual Vintage Ideas market is around the corner and this year visitors can expect a celebration of iconic women, who have influenced style trends over the years.  From 29 April to 2 May, the elegant Simondium’s Country Lodge will be transformed into a vibrant market with exhibitors offering extraordinary gems.

The lodge presents more than 1,5 hectares of covered exhibition space for vintage collectables ranging from décor, jewellery, glassware, silver, fashion and accessories, kitchenalia, garden accessories, irresistible bric ‘n brac and precious antiques.  Inspired by style influencers such as the inimitable Frida Khalo, Argentinian first lady Evita Peron and Hollywood starlets such as Audrey Hepburn, this year’s market will unlock the treasures from yesteryear to add colour and elegance to your home and cupboard.
