Don’t let the cold snap put you off our lovely fair tomorrow, in the main Square in Shrewsbury town centre…..9am-5pm. I have new things to show you, including little plush elephants now in the softest cuddly plush, in pastel shades just perfect for spring; opal mint, lavender and cucumber….They look adorable and feel just amazing. Some nods towards Valentine’s Day, including cards and hearts and ideas for Easter and Mother’s Day too. So if you’re about, then do come and see!
To get you in the romantic mood, here’s a vintage fabric elephant – in pink. Happy Valentine’s!
This is just a reminder about the Chronicle Christmas Market in Shrewsbury’s town square this Saturday, the 20th December. I cannot believe how quickly time has passed this year! This is my last market of the year, so do come along and see what you can find on my stall for your Christmas stockings and gifts…..A nice, big event, with over 50 stalls with crafts and delicious local food……I hope to see you and wish you all a Merry Christmas 2014! Squirrel and Owl say, ‘Happy New Year’ too!
This weekend is going to be busy, with two lovely events at which to start thinking about your Christmas gifts! I know….it seems early, but there’s no harm in picking up a few pieces early, spreading the cost and making sure you have that perfect present! Tomorrow, Saturday the 5th of October, I shall be in Ludlow’s town square for the Made in Shropshire fair, from 9am-5pm. And then Sunday, the 6th, it’s Vintage Escapades at Woore Victory Hall, Woore, Cheshire, from 10am-4pm. Lots of goodies to be had at both and it’s going to be a lovely, warm weekend too, especially on Saturday for the outside event! I hope to see you at one or both!
I shall be in Ludlow town square this Saturday, the 1st of June, for Made in Shropshire’s monthly fair…Come and see some lovely locally made crafts and food, from 9am-5pm! Then on Sunday it’s Vintage Escapades at Woore Victory Hall, 10am-4pm. It’s a clothing extravaganza! Come and pick up a new summer dress, so you’re ready when the sun comes out….surely sometime in June….
This weekend I shall be heading to Dearnford Lake Country Fayre, Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May. Vintage Escapades have a very special little marquee alongside the country fayre, where there are dog shows and displays, crafts, activities, face painting and a fairground, plus the cafe, car boot sale and other attractions. Do come along! From 10am-4pm on both days. You can find directions here to Tilstock Road, Whitchurch, SY13 – www.dearnford.com. It’s about a mile from Whitchurch railway station and easily accessible by car on the A49. See you there!
It’s the second Saturday of the month, which means it’s Made in Shropshire day! We’ll be in the Square in Shrewsbury town centre from 9am-5pm, so please do come along and take a look at all the lovely handmade crafts and local food produce. This tiny bunny is coming with me. See you there!
This Sunday, 7th April, it’s Vintage Escapades time at Woore Victory Hall, Woore, Cheshire! 10am-4pm, with brilliant crafters and fabulous vintage…with a focus on clothing this month. I’ll treat myself to something, no doubt. See you there!
I’m looking forward to this, and we are hoping that we will have waved goodbye to this dismal weather and said hello to some sunshine in time to enjoy Crafty Vintage in Bishops Castle, Shropshire on Saturday 6th April. It’s a handpicked selection of fabulous vintage sellers and amazing crafters, plus tea and cakes too, of course. Open from 10am-4pm at the Auction Hall on Station Street. It’s a small town, you’ll find us…near the bottom of the town. Spot the bunting outside! I look forward to seeeing you!
Don’t forget, it’s the very LAST Vintage Escapades handmade and vintage fair of the year, tomorrow, Sunday 2nd December! I can’t believe it’s December already. I opened my first advent calendar window this morning (it was an owl, if you want to know, behind the window flap, and the calendar is a vintage 1960’s one that I found, totally brilliant and snowy and nostalgic). Anyway, see you tomorrow! I have a lot of lovely things to show you. Pear of Peas tearoom is open, with special mince pies, brandy snaps and Christmas puddings. And Father Christmas is arriving at 11am! Splendid! 10am-4pm! Woore Victory Hall, Woore, Cheshire.
This has to be the cutest ever Vintage Escapades poster! Puppies in knitted stockings; could there be anything nicer? (Well, yes, kittens in mittens are always welcome). This month sellers will be going all out to kick start your Christmas shopping with their gorgeous handmade and vintage wares. From 10am-4pm, this Sunday the 4th November at Woore Victory Hall, Cheshire. See you there!
