Popping-Up and Going to the fair!

Well we had a fantastic time at our last fair in Wadebridge and already we're looking forward to our next fair - THIS SATURDAY!!!  Time seems to be flashing by so fast at the moment.  Most likely because after the Wadebridge fair, Mum and I started planning for our first step into the world of Pop-UP Shops!  After much worrying, treasure hunting and planning, we opened our doors on Monday and will be open for five days only (until Friday) at the Miners and Mechanics Institute, Vicarage Road, St Agnes!  If you haven't already, please pop in and see us!  We're open from 9am-5pm-ish until Friday. 

We are having such fun, and are really enjoying an opportunity to 'spread out', filling a WHOLE ROOM with all our treasures - those of you that know us well will know that we always bring far too much stock with us to fairs, we just can't bare to leave things at home!!  Its also been enjoyable meeting many a vintage-lover, from Cornwall and much further afield and have been using the opportunity to spread the word about this Saturday's fair!  After we shut the doors to our Pop-Up shop on Friday evening, we'll be moving across the road to the Methodist Chapel to get ready for the fair!  Already it sounds like it will be a busy one!

And why not, since there is so much to look forward to!  As usual, we have a great mix of stallholders, with lots of your 'Vintage in a Teacup' favourites plus some new and exciting sellers for you too!

We hope that we've whetted your appetite enough for you to be tempted to join us! We really hope to see you there!
