Apologies…

After much consideration and lots of thought over the past few months I have decided that I am unable to continue holding the Higham Ferrers Craft and Vintage Fairs. Now that I am working full time, my weekends have become increasingly busy trying to juggle other family commitments. I just haven’t the time or energy to host these events in the way that I feel they require.
I have absolutely loved holding these fairs over the past few years and have met so many wonderful people who I know also really enjoy our monthly get togethers. It has made this such a difficult decision as I know there will be many disappointed stallholders and customers.
Maybe with time I will be able to restart them but for now I feel it is best to have a bit of a break. I really do hope you all understand. Hopefully I’ll still see you all around Higham. Take care and have a lovely summer, Louise xx
PS Any stallholders who have already paid for events are of course due a full refund. Please get in touch via email so we can arrange your refund rainbowcraftevents@yahoo.co.uk

What a wonderful morning!

A massive thank you to all the stallholders for all their hard work this morning. The selection of stalls this morning was fantastic and many people commented on the high quality of items and friendly atmosphere in the hall which is always great to hear. We were fully booked so it was fab to see the hall full to the brim with handmade and vintage goodies including vintage cruet sets, fudge, body care products, crochet, wooden gifts, bath products, paintings, cottages and plenty more. Have a look at the photos and see for yourself!
Thank you also to all the customers who visited today. Many stallholders commented on how pleased they were with their sales today so thank you to the customers for buying so many lovely things! While I was at the market handing out flyers, several came and showed me all the bags they had which were full of things they’d bought at the fair!
Feedback was really positive this month so I’m really pleased about that. A few mentioned the possibility of having a hot food van outside which is a great idea – however I’ve not had any joy getting one booked so far. If anyone knows of anyone who may be interested please send them my way! My email is rainbowcraftevents@yahoo.co.uk
Lastly, Happy Easter everyone. Enjoy the rest of your Easter weekend and we’ll see you on Saturday 28th April 9am-1pm for the next Craft & vintage Fair.

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
