Two Days To Go - Olney 9th July


We visited the Carlton House Club to complete the final preparations for the fair which is only two days away. Many thanks to Richard and all the staff who have been very helpful and friendly, it's a great venue in a beautiful town.


This is Mabel from Nicopoka who will be having a stall at the fair on Saturday, Nicopoka  is a lovely shop on the High Street in Olney selling flowers and vintage items.



On the other side of the High Street in Olney is the Nest at No. 9 where you can find some wonderful vintage and shabby chic style homewares and gifts. Thank you for displaying the flyer for the fair.


These display boards received their first coat of varnish at 1.15am last night, although it has been showery for the last few days the forecast for Saturday is for a more settled day with some sunshine.

Tomorrow we will be busy gathering together the handmade cakes that friends have kindly prepared for the fair. The 'Old Style' Tea Shop is such an enjoyable part of our vintage fairs, drinks are served in lovely vintage china, tables covered in cloths decorated with embroidered flowers and crinoline ladies, accompanied by music from the 1920s-1950s.

Visit the fair this Saturday, everyone is welcome, the venue has disabled access. Parking is available on the street, in the various public car-parks (free) and at the rear of the Carlton House Club, accessed from East Street.
We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.
