On Sunday 23rd Febuary is Miss Daisy’s Vintage & Craft Fair in Chorlton. With some well known traders already confirmed like Mint Vintage and Vintage Belle this looks to be an exciting addition to the vintage fair scene. Miss Daisy’s Tea Den will be on hand to offer you a break if the vintage shopping all gets too much.

The 15th March see’s Prestwich host the second of its “The Village Haul” vintage and handmade fairs. We love the kitsch poster they’ve designed for the event, their inaugural one in November 2013 we’ve heard was a real success The fair is held at the Church Lane Community Centre M25 1AJ.

Do go and support your local fairs and let us know what you think about these three new ones. I’m sure if they get enough support they might become a regular feature on our events calendar.
