HUNDREDS of people turned out to a pop-up vintage market held over the weekend.

People from across the Tees Valley attended the 'Chiq Vintique' event in Stockton on Saturday, April 6.

More than 40 independent traders set up their stalls within the large marquee on the town's High Street.

Traders from across the North-East, some of them with physical stores within towns and cities, gave visitors a taste of upcycled toys and gifts, handmade jewellery, vintage hair accessories and homemade food.

The free event, which took place between 10am and 4pm, was the first event of the year, of its kind.

A spokesperson for Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council, who helped organise the event, said the event kick-started the council's programme of events for 2019.
