First Craft & vintage Fair of 2018

Well I hope you all had a lovely rest over Christmas and the New Year. We haven’t held a Craft & Vintage Fair since November so it will be great to get back into the swing of things this year. As before, we’ll be holding these fairs for handmade and vintage items on the last Saturday of every month 9am-1pm – the same time as the Higham Ferrers Farmers Markets. We have around 20 stalls and it’s free entry for customers. We sell refreshments and they’re half price 9-10am for those early birds who enjoy visiting first thing. I’m still taking bookings for February 24th (we’re not holding a fair in January)  and for throughout the year so please do get in touch if you’re interested in making some bookings. We’re a friendly bunch and we’d love to meet even more stallholders this year. My email address is rainbowcraftevents@yahoo.co.uk I’ll look forward to hearing from you! Louise
