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

Ruby’s at Newbury College 8th March 2014


Our first Fair of the year at Newbury College took place on Saturday 8th of March and it was the first one for a while that Ruby herself was present.
