Organised by Maxine Stonehill, Pop Up Vintage Fairs pop up in London at Wilton’s Music Hall, IACF Alexandra Palace, St John’s Church in Hackney, Walthamstow Assembly Hall and Old Hampstead Town Hall.
The Grade II-listed Hampstead venue in Belsize Park is now a community hub. It will attract a host of vintage fashion lovers thronging up the grand staircase as the organisers take over the building for the day on Sunday, December 4, with an opening time of noon.
Rose & Brown Vintage
It’s the 15th anniversary of the Saltaire Vintage Home and Fashion Fair, “dedicated to true vintage since 2007”, says organiser Caroline Brown of Rose & Brown Vintage. The event is held in the World Heritage village of Saltaire, near Leeds in West Yorkshire with the next on Saturday, December 10, at the Victoria Hall.
Brown adds: “The fair has grown from the original 22 stalls to an always fully booked 44. I’d say it’s loved for the variety and quality of the genuine vintage stock – nothing post 1989 – brought by regular and new stallholders as well as the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful setting.”
Clare Antiques Fairs
The two-day antiques and vintage fair in the small Suffolk old wool town of Clare, near Bury St Edmunds, has its last outing of the year on Saturday and Sunday, December 3-4.
Run by dealer Pearl Gee, who took the fair over last December and who also organises an antiques fair in nearby Long Melford, Clare Antiques Fairs are held in the town hall with around 30 stallholders.
