Ruby went to Hastings

On Sunday 16th August Ruby’s Vintage and Retro Fair was at The White Rock Theatre in Hastings and didn’t we have a beautiful day for it!

The sun was out most of the day and there were people queueing to get in when we opened at 10am. The event was publicised by the White Rock, both in their brochure and online plus posters in the foyer, we advertised in the local papers as well as nationally for the first time in Homes & Antiques magazine no less! read more

Ruby says Goodbye to the Abingdon Guildhall (temporarily….)


The sun shone and it was a party atmosphere at the Guildhall in Abingdon on Saturday 6th June when Ruby arrived in town!  Ruby herself fired up her engine and made her way to the archway facing the market square where she parked to help publicise the Fair.   Just as well as the banner belonging to the Guildhall was cut down and removed! Fortunately our banners outside the Guildhall and on Tesco’s roundabout remained. read more

Ruby’s at Abingdon Guildhall 7th March

Friendof Ruby

Saturday 7th March saw some welcome sunshine and lots of happy sunny vintage lovers made their way to the Guildhall in Abingdon to shop in two rooms chock full of glorious vintage.  We had some stallholders follow us from their first Ruby’s at High Wycombe including Susan Baxter of Vintage Mabel who offered us high-end vintage clothes and Martin Hendry who takes unloved, unfashionable pieces of furniture and gives them new life and new style with clever use of paint and wall paper.  Check out our Facebook page for links to his website. read more
