Vintage at the Village Hall

Well dear hearts, here it is- cue the trumpets, cut the ribbon. . .
the grand unveiling of my TA-RA moment!

Quite a while back I had a hankering to hold at "at home" selling day
but living quite literally in the middle of a field,
the logistics of getting everyone down the track and safely parked
if the ground was wet made it a non-starter!

My mind wandered to our local village hall which could
comfortably accomodate a group of sellers, but the idea
of holding my own FAIR was a bit daunting.
                                     
 A couple of weeks ago while reminiscing with Shirley in France
about the "good old days" when we did fairs and had shops,
(memory certainly casts a rosier hue doesn't it!)
we both decided we needed something quite different
from our normal eBay routine and had a hankering to
sell to "real people" once again.
"Oh I'll hold my Vintage Fair then"
"Well if you do, I'll come over from France and sell!"

So I put the phone down, booked the venue and we have
TA-RA

So far 8 stands are booked, with details over on the
so take a peek, tell me what you think
(always tell me what you think- you're my "collective muse")
contact me quickly if you want to sell. . .
but most of all, if you possibly can. . .


COME AND SEE US ON THE DAY!!

Annie said...

Great news Elaine, I would love to be able to come along but it's probably just a bit too far for me and no doubt I will be at work. Can't wait to hear more about it and see the photos after the event. It looks like you have some wonderful sellers and the setting looks perfect.

Oh how I wish I come to sell, to buy, to look around I wouldn't care but alas we're just too far away..

carol at home said...

Oh I didn't just mean to bemoan my geographical position I really intended to wish you the very best of luck with this (very) exciting venture.

I promise faithfully if you do another fair next year I will travel down to Dorset and have a stand. I am so disappointed I cannot make this one, I so want to be there. The best of luck and I know it will be a huge success, so book a stand for Hesta Nesta next year and I will be down!!

Oh, how I wish you were not so far away...

Sherri B. said...

I so wish I go come. That was a grand idea and how special that you get to see a friend for a bonus.

What a fab looking village hall.

Sounds like you have a good mix of exhibitors already Elaine.
Unfortunately, Northumberland to Dorset is a tad too far for me.....Shame!

Kim said...

Hooray for you! I miss selling to real live people. I hope it goes well for you! Indiana doesn't seem to be the place to sell anything right now but I may be just mistaken. I wish I was there, I'd shop and buy!

bad penny said...

Hubby says he'll bring me - any tips on other things to do nearby on a very very rare day out with him ?

Menopausal musing said...

How exciting.... will see what can be done nearer the day! :O)

How exciting, wish I lived nearer.

Autumn Mist said...

I'm sure it will be brilliant, I only wish I was nearer, I would definitly come. Can't wait to hear all about it (which means you must find a way of taking photos on the day...

VintageWantsNotNeeds said...

Good luck Elaine, Ann told me you were planning a fair...you must be mad joining the rest of us ladies who organise these things then run around like headless chickens crossing jobs to do off our lists and worrying that poeple will not come!!!

tracey @ the vintage bothy said...

Hi Elaine, thanks for commenting about the tweed shorts conundrum!
This fair of yours sounds great, are there any stalls left?
It would probably mean a night away for us, but a day/night at the seaside is always welcome to us.

OhSoVintage said...

Oh, I wish I lived nearer. Why are all the vintage fairs in Dorset/Somerset? Good luck!

Sylvia said...

That must be exciting !
I wish you the best of luck with your vintage fair !
Nice week,
Sylvia

BizzyDays said...

OOOooooo....Just up the road from me! How exciting! I'm going to start saving now :0)
And if I hadn't just moved, I would be selling too! But that will have to wait till your one next year! ;0)
Can't wait....
Best of luck!
See you there,
Donna x

Serenata said...

So very exciting... pre TOS days, I would have been down like a shot...now it is simply far too far to drive. Best of luck!

BizzyDays said...

Re. Your comment on my blog.
Yes, that's absolutely fine! I was only thinking of you today when I was in the library at Ferndown and how you could advertise there too:)
I used to run craft fairs, so I know how hard the advertising is!
Just get in touch when their ready and I'll be happy to put them places, and on my car! Don't forget your car :0)

kirsty said...

Best of luck, sounds like my kind of event!
Thanks so much for collecting paintbrushes for me! xx

Hi Elaine
Congratulations and the best of luck for your new venture. Oh I do wish I could be there. And thank you kindly for the lovely comment (as usual) on my blog. I am glad the bunting will get an outing. I hope you get enough stalls and masses of visitors and hopefully there will be lots of piccies for us poor folk who can't make it.
