An amazing day...

A big thank you (huge!) to all the stallholders who participated in the fair on Saturday and for supporting me in my new venture organising a vintage event! I was amazed at the variety of goods on offer and the beautiful and unique displays that you all put together so wonderfully. I really appreciate all of the time and energy this takes, but the results were so worth it!

The feedback from customers who visited (final count ~ 1200 of them!) was also amazing ~ I think that the high quality of stalls was very much noticed and appreciated and I could see armfuls of purchases leaving the building...

The number of visitors exceeded my hopes and expectations and yes, there were queues, full tea tables and a very busy car park, but all in all I'm am so grateful for those that supported us, took notice of the advertising and PR and got in their cars and drove (some quite a distance!) to our village hall in the middle of nowhere! So, an even bigger 'thank you' to our customers!

Lastly an enormous 'thank you' to Lavinia's Tea Party for managing to keep calm and provide our visitors with a steady stream of cakes, sandwiches and teas, all served on pretty vintage china, I don't think any of us were quite prepared for such a busy day!

I managed to take a few photos in the minutes before we opened, I apologise if your stall hasn't been included but I ran out of time as usual! I know that some of the stallholders including Viv at Hen's Teeth, Jo at Hesta Nesta and TabbyRoo have also blogged about the fair!



Until the next one....I will keep you posted when I have recovered from this one!

  2. I read about your fantastic fair over at hen´s teeth - it looks amazing!!!! I´m so jealous, we have nothing like that here in Denmark :-(

    I´m going to follow you here and put you on my La Vie Bohème blog roll as I love vintage stuff - I´m a textile artist and my shop is in a renovated train carriage filled with vintage furniture, my own work, antique china and vintage dresses ;-)

    How do you apply for a stall? I would love to come over and be part of the event next year!

    Many greetings, Kirsten

  3. Thank you so much Ali for such a wonderful day.
    All your hard work and that of your family paid off. I had a thoroughly enjoyable and busy day; met lots of new customers and went home exhausted. Thanks to all who bought from me.
    Hope you'll feeling like doing it all again when you've had a well earned rest
