Well, first of all a very Happy New Year to all! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year, it feels like a long time ago now! I’ve got off to a busy start this January with the Craft & Vintage Fairs in Higham Ferrers and have been making lots of bookings for all of this year’s dates. There are still a few spaces at each event so please do let me know if you’d be interested in coming along.. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
On Saturday 28th January, we will be holding this year’s first fair at the Working Men’s Club on Westfield Terrace 9am-1pm, at the same time as the ever popular Farmers’ Market. We have a great selection of stalls – lots of lovely handmade items and a growing selection of vintage which I’m really pleased about. I’ve noticed that some craft stallholders have also started selling some vintage items so there’ll be plenty there to suit all tastes! L & D Vintage will be bringing a fabulous range of vintage clothes, jewellery and handbags, while Heritage Vintage and Retro will be bringing lovely vintage and upcycled furniture. Polka Dot Craft, Gift and Vintage will also be selling vintage and handmade home accessories which I’m looking forward to seeing.
We have a great range of handmade items this month including Scrabble pictures, button heart pictures, handmade jewellery, knitted items, yarn and needles, fabric gifts plus lots more! I’ve been busy making cake stands using beautiful vintage plates, cups, saucers and bowls, magnetic pegs to pin photos and pictures to the fridge, felt ball garlands and felt brooches so there really is lots on offer!
9am-10am is HAPPY HOUR! All customers can have a FREE hot drink so it’s worth getting up early and coming straight over! Please do help spread the word about these fabulous Craft & Vintage Fairs by inviting friends on the event page and sharing posts if you like them. It really does help and is much appreciated! I’ve had 6 extra road signs printed as well as 5000 flyers. I gave out 1500 to schools and nurseries this week and am planning to give out about the same next week.
In February we will be using the DOWNSTAIRS of the Band Club on Wharf Road (opposite the Junior School) – we’re not using upstairs any more so no more long flights of stairs! Yippee! At this venue we have more flexibility as we can use the inter-joining rooms. So we will be using the back room as a gift room – selling items which are not handmade or vintage such as Scentsy products which will make a welcome addition. Please do get in touch if you’re interested.
Well I will hopefully see you on January 28th – remember it’s a great opportunity to buy unique gifts for Valentines Day – not long to go now!!
