Saturday's Fair

We hope you like these snaps from Olney on July 9th, we had a lovely day.



These are pictures of some of the stalls from the first Olney Vintage Fair which took place at the Carlton House Club last Saturday.


The function room of the Carlton was a hive of activity as sellers arrived to set up their stalls. There were some lovely original vintage items and textiles, found in the UK, America, France and beyond.


Bunting was hung inside the sales room, the tables in the old style tea-shop were laid, tables bedecked with vintage finery, the front of the Carlton adorned with signs and even more bunting.


Handmade cakes are so popular at our fairs, many thanks to our friends and family who helped prepare and serve them.


As well as original vintage there were some lovely handmade creations using vintage fabrics and details.


When the doors opened at noon visitors were waiting outside, the room looked beautiful.


The stalls were a treasure trove for lovers of vintage, complemented by the music of Josephine Baker, Glen Miller and Frank Sinatra. Everyone seemed to have a great time, many thanks for the kind comments from visitors, we want to continually improve our fairs and your comments help us to do this.


There were some individual items to complement the popular vintage favourites.



Thank you to all our stall wonderful stall holders, and merci beaucoup to Charente Vintage! Your lovely vintage items made the room so pretty. Thank you to all of you who visited us, the fair will return to Olney on October 8th. Thanks to all at the Carlton House Club, you were great and helped us make the fair such a friendly occasion, its a great venue and we cannot wait to return.
Countdown to Market Harborough on August 6th has begun, we will post the flyer in the next few days and look forward to seeing you there.
