Vintage and antique event heads for Burnett Arms


A much loved event, missing from Banchory now for many years, is set to make a highly anticipated welcome return this weekend.

ChicRetro Events Banchory are to hold their first antique and vintage fair this Saturday, April 12, at the Burnett Arms Hotel in the town’s High Street.

There is already a lot of interest, including internationally with people from multiple states in the USA already confirmed that they will visit.

The event’s facebook page has been a great tool for ChicRetro, whose talented but modest moderator, Brian, has received accolades from the online and business community.

ChicRetro’s facebook provides a weekly business feature which offers information on selected businesses, local or of similar interest which has proven to be a successful addition to normal event postings.

Over the last few weeks in the run up to the fair, ChicRetro have provided via their page a series of postings/details relating to stallholders attending the event at their new venue.

Lindsay Clark, of ChicRetro, said: “Brian has done a wonderful job.

‘‘He’s dragged me kicking and screaming into the 21st century with this. I had no interest in social networking before but the way you can use it to connect local business together is fantastic...I’ve been amazed by the response and am excited to see people there who might not normally think this type of thing was for them.”
