Saturday Night, Sunday Morning and Next Week's Fair in Harborough
|The Three Swans in Market Harborough|
This water-colour of the Three Swans hangs in the foyer of the hotel, I noticed it when I was in Market Harborough last Friday. I had travelled up to complete some last minute 'postering' which principally involves asking various local businesses to display posters for the forthcoming 3rd Market Harborough Vintage Fair. As usual people were very positive and helpful and I would like to say thank you to Costa, Joules Yard, Emmerson & West and GorGeous Shoes.

The Three Swans is a very historic and very old coaching inn, situated 21 High Street, this magnificent wrought iron sign hangs outside. The fair will be taking place in the Fairfax and Cromwell Suites. The fair starts at 11am and will close at 4pm, tea and cakes will be available throughout and there will be lots of stalls selling original vintage items from the 20s - 60s and handmade items made from vintage fabrics.
|Saturday 11th February 11 - 4|
I visited the indoor market hall which on a Sunday provides home to the well established weekly antiques market, and decided that I would take a pitch later this weekend.
|St Dionysius & The Old Grammar School|
As Saturday progressed I checked the forecast and snow seemed likely and finally started in the evening and continued for hours. Anyone who has tried to drive a rear wheel drive automatic in snow will understand why I decided not to go to the market!
We are really looking forward to the fair in Market Harborough and hope to see you there.
