The original vintage and handmade fair........



Have I a treat for you all today.  With the success of the vintage fair dates last week  I have some more for you but also a piece written about them by Jayne.




The first & Original Vintage & Handmade Fair was held in the village hall in Rangeworthy, South Gloucestershire in 2008, the result of a 'lightbulb' moment between two friends, Jayne Soule & Michele Chivers.

The events had to be moved on to bigger premises in Chipping Sodbury to accommodate the demand for stalls. 6 years on, visitors to this fair, held four times a year, come from far and wide and are treated to a selection of good quality vintage goods, along with some original and exciting stalls showcasing work from U.K artists. The fair has a loyal band of followers as well as many new converts who come to each fair and delight in the variety of goods on sale, from tip top vintage fabric & haberdashery items, millinery, kitchenalia, vintage clothing, vintage toys, unique handmade silver jewellery pieces, brocante pieces.. there is something to be found for every collector, maker & lover of vintage lifestyle.  
The first 50 visitors of the day are treated to a free goody bag. Space is donated free of charge to local fund raising groups to run a fabulous tea room which is always well supported, although that isn't hard as the home made cakes are so delicious!In addition to the fairs, a few years ago we came up with the idea of holding Vintage Jumble Sales where we and our stall holders can clear out old or unwanted stock & these have proved to be very popular with vintage bargain hunters -
