The St Issey Fair!

Well we really did have a fantastic day at Saturdays Vintage in a Teacup, St Issey! Once all the stalls were set up and ready, we opened the doors to a loud cheer from a long queue of people desperate to rummage amongst the vintage delights that lay in side the Village Hall - and they weren't disappointed! Our stallholders really did put on a fantastic spread!

This photo was taken right at the end of the day when things were slowing down, but we had a lovely flow customers throughout the day, many of whom shared a delightfully infectious appreciation for vintage! I really enjoyed chatting to people about the things they liked, the things had been hunting out for ages and the memories that some pieces at the fair helped to evoke!

And it was wonderful to see people, purchases in hand, leaving the fair with a huge smile on their face!

Our vintage tearoom was a great success again, raising a wonderful £126.43 for Precious Lives. A big thanks to our stallholders who donated a cake each and huge thanks to our Tearoom Team, without whom we really couldn't have run the fair! Thank you to Seamus, Mark and Deb (who is hiding in the background somewhere!).

If you couldn't join us on the day, here are some pictures of our stallholders and their stalls...

So keep popping back for more information on the stallholders that will be joining us!
