Vintage and Handmade Fairs 2012

Below are the fab new fair posters for 2012. Jo stokes is a very talented lady and so pleased with the updated versions for this year.  Please drop me a line if you are interested in a stall, we have lots of exciting new makers this year and our usual vintage sellers bringing an exciting range of yummy vintage clothing and accessories.

Also pleased to announce that I'm trying out a smaller vintage fair in Maldon, Essex. There will probably only be about 20 stall holders but I want to start off small to gage the popularity then who knows? Small but perfectly formed I feel though but most importantly 'All the tea and China' will be there with their yummy vintage tea room. Plus it's very near the high street so hopefully lots of passing trade.

Exciting year ahead and looking forward to adding lots of exciting extras to the fairs - facebook competitions, giveaways, live entertainment and vintage suprises! x x x

Vintage cushion making evening

On the 3rd of March in Burnham I'm organising a vintage inspired cushion making evening run by Sarah Barlow. I've added a few pictures of her lovely creations above/below and she will I'm sure be providing some lovely fabric for the evening. All materials will be supplied as well as copious amounts of tea, coffee and cake.

Great way to make something fantastic, fashionable and unusual for any part of your home as well as having a good old natter and a very sociable evening!

Please email me at for full details and to be kept informed of any other exciting crafty evenings in Burnham.

Leigh-on-Sea Vintage and Handmade Fair 2012

Just set a couple of dates for this year's Vintage and Handmade Fair at the Community Centre in Leigh-on-Sea - 24th March and 30th June. Hoping to confirm two other dates for this year but the future of the community centre is uncertain so will have to keep you all posted.

If I can no longer use the Community Centre then I will definitely be looking for other suitable venues in Leigh.  Any ideas then please let me know, also looking at other venues in Essex . . .

If you are interested in having a stall then contact me via my website or at Always keeping my beady little key open for cool and interesting crafts or funky vintage sellers to add to the fair.

You will also have the opportunity to have your hair styled from the Hair Aid Shelter. Tickets are £15 and available in advance from me at What a perfect way to spend an autumn afternoon . . . . x

Interested in having a stall?

The next Leigh-on-Sea Vintage and Handmade fair is on the 17th September.  Tables are £35 and if you would like more information please message me through my website or facebook page.  Last Saturday's one was lots of fun with about 60 stalls and quite a good foot fall due to lots of postering/leafleting and a fab article in the Evening Echo on Friday.

Looks like September's fair is hotting up too.  Please look at the facebook group for more pictures and comments. x x
