Day Of The Fair

The 4th Northampton Vintage Fair

It was a beautiful spring day
We had been hoping for good weather during the week leading up to the fair and it turned out to be a lovely sunny day. Bunting was hanging all around the long wall which surrounds St. Matthew's and by 12 noon a queue of visitors had formed at the door, waiting patiently in the warm sun, the church bell began to strike and the fair began.



The previous two hours had been frenetic as the stall holders arrived, some having driven for over 60 miles. We had a great day meeting up with old friends and meeting lots of lovely new sellers and customers.





As usual the tea room was very popular, serving wonderful homemade cakes and tea and coffee from vintage china. The tables were decorated with vintage coronation china and cheerful bunches of daffs.




There were a great range of stalls selling vintage home wares.




Vintage Wants was selling some beautiful vintage American home ware and ephemera.




Elsie Sparrow uses her vintage bike to display her lovely hand made children's items.




Tilly Rose joined us again with her pretty array of hand made lovelies.




Love Tracey joined us as a new seller for the first time.




Jo from Hesta Nesta had a beautiful display on her stall as always and had her usual mouth watering range of vintage textiles.





There was something for everyone including pretty cup cakes and piles of vintage fabric.
Many of your favourite sellers are returning for the fair on May 21st along with some exciting new additions. Looking forward to seeing you there.
