We are running our first Vintage and Handmade Fair this Saturday (18th June) in Shalford, a little village about a mile outside of Guildford.
We're really excited about the fair and so pleased by the number of amazing stallholders (you can see some of them here: http://www.vintagepixie.co.uk/fabulous-event/shalford-near-guildford-june-2011) who have wanted to take part.
There really is something for everyone, everything from handmade gifts and jewellery to vintage clothes for kids and adults, from beauty products to vintage makeovers. We'll even have a vintage VW Camper van selling fabulous retro hampers outside! (Weather permitting)
We've been working mega-hard to make it as good a day as possible for everyone involved and now we're just hoping that lots of people will come and make the day a success for all!
If you're at all near the area forget your local high street for the day and please do come along between 11 and 4 for the opportunity to shop with some unique sellers!
Here's a copy of the leaflet we've been distributing all over the place! :)
Our aim with the fair was to give everyone a 'little extra' from the norm:
So we have a dedicated section on the website for the stallholders - their details will remain up online after the event, so people who missed them on the day/saw them but have forgotten their details, can remind themselves and hopefully help to generate business and value for the stallholders after the fair itself has passed.
The stallholders also get free tea and coffee all day, we know how much tea is needed during a long day at a fair!!
For the customers: Entry is free, they will be getting a little goody bag with stallholders info and some retro sweeties (while stocks last!), they also get a voucher for money off their first order in the tearooms!
The tearooms will be serving cakes, cupcakes, cake pops and cake sandwiches, as well as some savoury sandwich choices for the less sweet-toothed! :)
The tearooms (run by Jumbly Crumbly Kitchen) will also be home to a foosball table, so those who don't want to browse can entertain themselves while their companions shop!
For the little ones the tearooms will be running a 'create a cupcake' workshop (although bigger kids also welcome :)
If you are in the area please do call in. Last minute Father's Day gifts will be available!! :o)
