The New Textile and Decorative Marquee at Newark
The organisers of The Newark Antique Fairs have been incredibly helpful over the past few weeks. They have given 4 of us our very own marquee! We had all been finding it difficult to sell textiles and vintage clothing at such a huge fair as there is just so much to see over a large area and customers do not always find us.
We knew the formula worked well at Ardingly, where 4 of us are grouped together in one place. Like-minded customers now know where to find us (near the refreshment stand at Ardingly)
At The Newark Fair we are in marquee 9A, which is near the shippers area and The Lady Eastwood. The 4 of us at Newark are Michele (above 3 images from her beautiful stand at Shepton Mallet last week)
Maud from Beyond France with her fantastic range of linen, rugs, bags and much more................
My stand will have an eclectic mix of Vintage costume, vintage knitwear, textiles, trimmings, buttons and French Treasures.
Alan brings from France more wonderful goodies. Anybody who has seen his stand at the Bath Fair will know that his stock is extensive. Vintage shoes jostle for space with fabric covered boxes, piles of wonderful fabric and trimmings.
The next Fair in Newark is on Thursday the 7th of April to Friday the 8th. Click on the website link here for details of opening times. It is one of the largest fairs in the country, so not to be missed!
