There are currently a lot of scammers on Facebook etc who are pretending to either be running events or part of current events and asking for potential stallholders to send money.
Dolly’s Artisan Fair on Sunday 19th November and Ruby’s Vintage Fair the following week on Sunday 26th November were our last events of the year and they both turned out to be bumper fairs!
Lyn and Yvonne are working hard to bring you Dolly’s Christmas Artisan Fair at Old Basing Village Hall in Old Basing on Sunday 19th November and Ruby’s Vintage Christmas & Retro Fair at the Victoria Hall in Hartley Wintney on Sunday 26th November. There is a lot of preparation involved, not least the social media, the distribution of leaflets and banners, the finalisation of stallholders and floor plans!
The busy season is upon us! The time of year when stallholders hope that you lovely visitors will attend events and chose to spend your hard earned money on gifts and items from independent traders and small businesses rather than huge online conglomerates or (increasingly rare) high street shops.
The first weekend in July saw us back at Millets Farm Centre for our annual Vintage Village. This is really one of our favourite events of the year and although it’s a lot of hard work, we get a real buzz from showcasing the best of Affordable Vintage to visitors and friends.
It was a lovely Spring day, one of few so far this year, on Saturday 22nd April in the temperate climes of Hartley Wintney near Hook in Hampshire. In fact, it was so nice we had an old fashioned ice cream trike outside for a first taste of summer.
We welcome you back to the Victoria Hall in Hartley Wintney ready for our next event on Saturday 22nd April. We love this hall for it’s Arts & Crafts exterior and the modern facilities inside so it’s an ideal venue for Ruby’s Vintage & Retro Fair.
We had a blast at our first ever Dolly’s Artisan Fair in Old Basing Village Hall and would like to thank the stallholders for their faith in us, the new organisers!
