Are you a fan of 1940's Victory rolls and red lipstick? Or do you
love everything 50's including poodles and roses? Maybe the mod 60's
appeal to you, or are you a girl of the 70's in Laura Ashley floaty
frocks? Whichever fashion era you enjoy you are sure to find
something to delight you on the clothing rails at the Original
Vintage & Handmade Fair this autumn in Chipping Sodbury, South
If home decor is your passion then you won't be disappointed as we
have a wonderful selection of soft furnishings, small furniture,
lamp shades, pictures, quilts, china, glass and country style
Looking for a statement piece or a wonderful individual gift? We
have that covered too with handcrafted jewellery, heirloom dolls,
beautiful cloche hats, brooches and needlefelted animals.
For those who love to create their own treasures we have oodles of
vintage fabrics, haberdashery, patterns and much more.
Vintage toys and games are always to be found sprinkled around the
hall with time worn and well loved bears, rabbits and even rocking
horses awaiting new homes.
After enjoying this cornucopia of vintage treasures why not relax
with a cup of tea and slice of homemade cake and support local good
causes in our little tea room?

Jayne & Michele x www.vintageandhandmade.co.uk Stallholders:
Do you need to clear out your vintage
stash? Is it falling out every time you open your cupboards &
taking over your shed? Is is spilling out of the loft & sneaking
out from under the bed? If so, why not have a spring clean &
join us at our Vintage Jumble Sale in Rangeworthy, South Glos on the
22nd March & get your storage spaces back? (There is of course
no guarantee that you won't go home with more stuff as the stalls
& prices are SO tempting!)
We have 2 stalls available at £25 (includes the table, chairs &
unlimited cups of tea or coffee). We open from 10 am - 1pm.
If you are interested do get in touch - email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
With just a few weeks to go until the next V&H Fair - the 'February Fling', I thought it was time to give you a taster of what to expect & also to update you with the event dates for 2014.
As you can see from the photos, we will once again have many delightful stalls to tempt you!
This is just a sampling so why not come along on the 22nd February to the town hall in Chipping Sodbury between 10am & 3pm for a grand day out....and a cuppa & slice of cake or two in our fund raising traditional tea room.
It doesn't seem so long ago, when Jayne and I sat around my kitchen table and had one of those light bulb moments, that was to become The Original Vintage & Handmade Fair.. an event to be held for all fellow blogging pals who had a vested interest in the world of vintage lifestyle and design. That moment was back in August 2008 and our first fair was held in Rangeworthy Village hall that same October. We were not prepared for the amazing support and enthusiasm we received for our first event.. The queues went round the block and the messages in the visitors book begged for more of these events as they were a breath of fresh air to the many folk who had travelled far and wide to come to our first humble event. The BBC Homes & Antiques Magazine.. did us proud and featured our first vintage fair in a four page article.. and we have been fortunate to welcome them to many more of our events ever since.
The V & H as it has become known.. has gone from strength to strength and from those small beginnings we now hold four fairs a year at Chipping Sodbury Town Hall, alongside our ever popular jumble sales which are held, where it all began, in the village hall in Rangeworthy and also the village of Box in Wiltshire.
Jayne and I have been so grateful for the continued and loyal support of so many of our original exhibitors who have attended a number of our fairs over the years. Not to mention our visitors who still come from far and wide.. even from overseas.
We are rightfully proud of our event and the friends and many folk we have met along the way and would like to make it clear that we are not affiliated with any other event that uses the 'Vintage & Handmade Fair' name.. nor the use of our original logos.. created by myself ( Michele) for the Christmas and Spring Fairs that we held in 2009.
