  • vintage and handmade craft fair, Blackpool North West Sept 10th 2011

    This Fair is different, unique and special, it brings together handpicked designers, crafters and vintage dealers who either make wonderful Handmade items or sell gorgeous Vintage treasures.

    If you love Vintage and Retro items and appreciate the love and time gone into creating unique items, then the vintage and handmade craft Fair is for you! We want to be different and stand out from the normal type of fairs where the standards range from a bit naff to really good, we only want really good stalls and for everyone to have a great time.

    Also there will be a cafe area serving delicious homemade cakes as well as a selection of teas, chicory drink and coffee on vintage tea ware. We also cater for dairy free and gluten free dietary needs.

    This is going to be held at Claremont community centre, Claremont Road, Blackpool, Lancashire, UK, which is a great space in a lovely area, the building opens out onto the park. If it is sunny we may even have a marquee outside for extra seating and stalls. Please do come along and support us, free entry. There is on site free parking.

    If you would like a stall please get in touch with a link to your website or a photo of what you do.

    Stalls are £10, set up from 12.30. You get a table and 2 chairs.

    Blackpool Fair, 10th September

    Hello, I would possibly be interested in this fair, the website I looked at - crafty vintage - was pretty. I can either come as a stall holder, selling what we make, or what I have been doing very sucessfully and that might give you a different angle, is running craft workshops for customers, so they come and spend half an hour with me tutoring them in a project. We have an established program. The only query I have is that is it just a 1 day event? and does it really only set up at 12.30?
    Let me know, my company is CoolCrafting and the website is (mod edit - Sarah, please read the rule about urls in disguise) have a look around, but if you want to see an example of the workshops at a Vintage event, go to the vintage village hall post. Sorry its not letting me post proper URL's
    Thanks, Sarah Peel
    However I just found you can put in your signature!

            Hi, my wife and myself have recently started to make homemade cards and think this venue would be an ideal place to start selling some. We live in Cleveleys so wouldn't have to travel far. Please could you send me any information as we would to book a table. My email address is [email protected].
            Thank you very much.
