Happy New Year to all our readers and followers!

Kicking off the event calendar for this year is Stitch & Craft Fest which will be returning to the Crowne Plaza Hotel at Shaw's Bridge, Belfast on Sunday 5th February. We will have lots of news on this over the next few weeks but for now we would just like to introduce you to a few creative folks who are either new to our fairs for 2017 or who joined us towards the end of 2016............

Big thanks to everyone who visited our event at Marine Court Bangor last Sunday! We have time to catch our breath now before our onslaught of winter events begins - the first of which is The Wonderful Winter Vintage & Handmade Fair at Malone House Belfast on Sunday 6th November. It is going to be chock-a-block with amazing exhibitors selling vintage and handmade treasures, and this week's favourite finds are all from just a few of the people who will be taking part.........
So Monday is here again and it's time to share our favourite vintage finds of the week. This little lot of lovely treasures spotted online are all from just a few of the great exhibitors who are taking part in The Fall Into Winter Vintage & Handmade Fair this Sunday 2nd October at Marine Court Bangor.
After what seems like a really long break since our last event on 5th June we are getting super excited for this Sunday 31st July when we are back with The Great Summer Holiday Vintage & Handmade Fair taking place at the Marine Court Hotel on Bangor's beautiful seafront!
With the fair opening at Noon and ending at 5pm there will be lots to see, buy and do. On arriving at the Marine Court Hotel you will be greeted in the ground floor reception by a fantastic showcase of vintage, antique and industrial furniture, curiosities and homewares from two of our favourite vintage collector dealers - The Natural Room Emporium and On The Square Emporium.
Making your way to the Ballroom on the first floor, using the lift or stairs, you will then be greeted by not only a fantastic marketplace of vintage and handmade treasures but you will also have the opportunity to participate in taster craft sessions with the lovely ladies from Crafty Teas and to get involved in an attempt to beat the world record for the largest patchwork Christmas stocking with NI Big Sock (and you don't even have to be able to sew to take part).
Not forgetting our fabulous stallholders, you will also be able to shop til you drop from a great selection of vintage, handmade & upcycled wares including clothing and fashion accessories, china and homewares, fabric, haberdashery and soft furnishings, sweet treats and artisan foods, jewellery, original art, candles, male grooming products, toys, children & baby wear, beauty products and much more. With 30+ stalls there will be something for everyone - here is a little taster of what to expect on the day...........
The Great Summer Holiday Vintage & Handmade Fair takes place at The Marine Court Hotel, 18-20 Quay Street, Bangor on Sunday 31st July. The event takes place from 12-5pm and admission costs £3 for adults and children go free.
While we have been taking something of a little break during July we couldn't help noticing that Melanie from Vintage USA has been busy collecting some fabulous new additions to her collection of gorgeous vintage jewellery, china and homewares. These are just a few of our favourites and we can't wait to see what else she will have in store next Sunday at The Great Summer Holiday Vintage & Handmade Fair!
