With just a week to go, the cogs of the Vintage & Handmade enterprise have been whirring that little bit faster and there is a discernible buzz of activity coming from our wonderful team of members who are all doing their bit to get ready for the Spring Fair on Saturday April 9th.
It has been busy here too at The V & H HQ, making sure that we keep the publicity machine stoked, as without the help from the glossies we cannot be complacent and just expect folk to turn up on the day. Every little whisper helps and the magazines have done us proud again with a mention in these various publications.....our faithful friends and supporters BBC Homes & Antiques Magazine who will be attending the fair in person, a nice mention in Bath and Bristol Magazine, The Boundary Magazine, Sodbury Gazette, Parish Magazine.. and numerous websites..... Family Soup, Where Can We Go, Vintage Network, UK Handmade, Sodbury Online..
Illustrated above is the lovely mention we have in the Vintage Issue of Antiques Explorer, a paper with a huge circulation amongst the antiques trade. So with all this fabulous publicity we hope to draw a bumper crowd to this next fair. We will have copies of this magazine available for you to take away for free - look for it in the tea room upstairs.
There will be a fine variety of stalls including our regulars... Donna Flower, Lizzie Van Hasselt, Daisy Darling, Sal's Snippets, Hen's Teeth, HenHouse, Acorn and Will, Country Cottage Chic, Cowboys and Custard and many many more, with some exciting new members joining us such as Vintage Inspirations, Hesta Nesta and Beyond France.
Our stirling team will be serving endless cups of tea and cake throughout the day .. and best of all.. admission is FREE as is parking in Chipping Sodbury.
Hope to see you there!
