The Grand Vintage Fair

On Saturday I spent the day trading at the Grand Vintage Fair in St Albans. It's held 5 times a year in the Jubilee Centre.

The fair starts at 10 and runs till 4. Set about 5 minutes walk from the town centre it's perfect for calling in for a wander and a slice of cake.

This small but perfectly formed fair is made up of local vintage traders and crafts people. Debbie the lady who runs the fair picks the traders so there aren't too many of the same stalls.

There's a lovely selection of traders including Vintage Vi. She creates cameo jewelery and can even turn your own picture into a piece of wearable art.

Also trading was Bec from The Rocking Cow. She's the lady in charge of our trade table at my WI (Herts Belles WI). You can find her at the Alley Cats Emporium in Fleetville. 

Divinely Vintage were also there with a £5 sale of lots of their dresses. They specialise in vintage and second hand curtains. You can find them on Facebook.

So many lovely things to purchase. I came back with some beautiful vintage fabrics and some new earrings from All That Glitters. The fabrics came from a lady who was clearing out her Nans loft. She had some beautiful pieces. Can't wait to make something up in these.

Here are a few pictures of the day. There was even a pop up parlor.

I had to stop myself going home with more patterns!!
A few of the dresses I had for sale on the day.

Next fair for me is Moore Vintage at the Royal Masonic Girls School in Rickmansworth on Sunday 16th March. Over 40 traders, live entertainment and tea room. This fair is one of the biggest in the area and not to be missed. Free entry and parking too!!

Hopefully see some of you there, Emma Xx
