Thank You From Saturdays Fair

Many thanks to our stall holders and everyone who visited the fair at St Matthews on Saturday. We hope you all had a lovely time. There was a long queue of people waiting for the door to be opened, both sales rooms looked amazing full of beautiful stalls.
This lovely stall greeted visitors in the reception area and gained lots of admirers. A lot of people came to the fair for the first time, we do hope we will see you again. And a special thank you to those of you who were revisiting the Northampton fair, or had seen us for the first time at the fairs in Olney and Market Harborough earlier this summer and decided to come along.
It was also a first time at the Northampton Vintage Fair for seven stallholders, so in addition to established favourites there were some new collections of original vintage and handmade items. Judging by the positive comments received in conversation and from the new 'customer feedback' forms the blend of stalls seemed just right. The fair was busy throughout the afternoon and the four hours seemed to fly past.
The rooms were bustling right from the start and the there was a very friendly feeling about the fair, we spoke to visitors from Leics, Bucks, Beds, Warks and beyond and we received some great suggestions from the completed feedback forms, we are already planning to visit some of the locations mentioned! Thank you to one of our friends and stall holder who kindly designed and printed them for us, we think they looked great and will help us to improve the fair.
By the end of the fair all the lovely cakes had been eaten, the flowers from the tea shop taken home to remind us of the day.
These Christmas creations herald the 7th Northampton Vintage Fair which will be at St Matthews on 10th December, we are really forward to it, having planned the date way back in January.
We managed to find some lovely vintage treasures to buy and will share these in a posting later this week. We looking forward to seeing you again soon, you can find us in Olney on 8th October and Market Harborough on 19th November. 
Again thank you all so much for making the 6th Northampton Vintage Fair special.
