Roll up, roll up..Vintage & Handmade Fair..

After several failed attempts over the last six months due to constant work load and ..well ... life really ....Jayne from Country Cottage Chic and I finally managed to make a date to chat over coffee last week. Jayne and I had first met last Christmas when we had a very enjoyable outing at the American Museum in Bath..
Jayne and I met up again today with a chance for me to visit her lovely country cottage which if definitely tres Chic! ..and over a delicious cup of coffee it wasn't long before our conversation turned to .. blogging of course . We both felt that a Blogger's get-together would be a wonderful occasion for kindred bloggers to meet each other and have the added opportunity of showcasing and selling the wealth of handmade arts and crafts and vintage goodies that so many of you have to offer.. Sooo... with this idea buzzing around our heads we have put the wheels in motion for a Vintage & Handmade Fair © to be held on Saturday the 22nd of November 2008 at Rangeworthy Village Hall, nr. Chipping Sodbury, South Gloucestershire. 10 a.m - 4.00 p.m. Tables for the event are £10.00 each for the day Maximum 2 tables per person.
Free Admission

If you would like to share a table with someone then that is also a possibility..

There is plenty of parking for sellers and visitors at the hall and so no worries about traffic wardens and wheel clamping!

This event will be held exclusively for Blogging friends to come and sell their items at a Vintage and Handmade Fair and is open for all fellow bloggers and the public to come and buy and start the Christmas shopping frenzy...or just to meet up and chat and EAT CAKE!!

If you are interested in joining the throng as a seller.. or wish for more information ..please could you contact Jayne or myself by email. All are welcome but we are trying to achieve a variety of stalls so we have a good eclectic mix of Vintage goods and handmade items. We aim to advertise this in as many outlets as possible and of course the Blog world will spread the word far and wide we hope... Don't forget to put this date in your diary and we look forward to seeing you there.... Yee ha !!

That sounds like a fab event - what a great idea. I'd really like to come and have a stall but will let you know nearer the time if that's OK - all depends on the littlest pebble.

Hope you get a full house!

Too bad that you are not living around the corner. This will be a fun event! Have fun thinking and planning!

Ragged Roses said...

It's a brilliant idea Michele, I'm sure you're going to have a wonderful day. Good luck with it all, methinks you'll be needing vast amounts of yummy cake and cups of tea for all those bloggers who will be coming along. Enjoy and good luck

It sounds really fantastic. Sorry not to have replied to your email yet by the way. I'm very tempted to take a stall but to be honest, with my priorities changing lately and a new job to start I'm thinking that my sewing from now on is just going to be personal and not to sell. I will put the date in my diary though and very much hope that I might be able to come down and do some Christmas shopping and catch up with/meet all the bloggers.

What an excellent idea. I might just be tempted to come along if I'm down in Bristol visiting my mum around that time. I don't know Rangeworthy but Chipping Sodbury is such a gorgeous little town.

JuicyFig said...

ooh ooh! I want to come along - I will have to find out how far away it is, I have a feeling it might be out of my range - if so, there may need to be a northern version!!!

Oh to live in the West Country! So sorry that I probably won't be able to make it there in person but I shall definitely tell all and sundry about it. What a great idea and hope it'll be a roaring success. Have a slice of cake for me!

this is my patch said...

Wonder if I could convince the other half I need a couple of days away? With you and Jayne at the helm it is sure to be a great success. Lovely idea Michele, I am just miffed I don't live closer by to pop in, or even have a stall. x

Michael House said...

What a brilliant idea - I'd love to join in, but doubt I will manage to make enough stuff and get up there!

Two Crofters said...

why oh why do i live so far away......

not fair :(

Garden girl said...

What a fabulous thing of you both to organise-hurray! Not a billion miles away from me either, double hurray! Although obviously I will just be coming to buy stuff-my creative mojo has gone down the drain over recent months but hopefully by then I will be earning some money! Maybe I could set up a waffle stand...How exciting!x

Krafty Keely said...

What a fab idea shame I am so far away!

Good luck.

I live in Kent, so it's a bit of a schlepp. But you've given a great amount of notice. I'll be there with my cash to spend. Believe me... noone's going to buy anything I make!

Looking forward to meeting you.
