The Caterham Vintage and Art Fair

Postponement of next fair until the New Year

It was a hard decision to make but I have postponed my next fait until the new year, so no winter wonderland fair in December, that will have to wait for next year, but there will be a fair in the Spring and I will look forward to that very much. Unexpected things occur, these things happen – sometimes it’s just not right, and I am happy with my decision, I was quite quite stressed before, and I don’t believe that my dream should be turned into a nightmare.

The theme of the next fair will be something like green/nature and I very much hope to involve The Old Surrey Downs Project in on it as they do a wonderful job of looking after our chalk grasslands through their conservation work done by staff and an army of volunteers alike – if you are interested in knowing more about them then please go to:

Stall/exhibition space – From £25

The theme of the fair is:   My love of old things, vintage, romance, burlesque and ingenue style – please bear in mind that I do have eclectic taste so if you are not sure if your art fits in with this then please get in touch as you may be surprised! Pretty much all vintage would be great although if it’s 80s day-glo I will say a   no. I particularly love 40s and 50s. Small items please – clothes, accessories, books etc….again if you’re not sure please get in touch.

The Caterham Vintage & Art Fair is aimed at the local community of Caterham and surrounding areas, although anyone from further afield is welcome. If you are involved in any community projects that you think would be relevant for the event then please get in touch and I will do my best to find a way to involve you.

There will be live entertainment and a ‘tea room’ serving ration recipe cakes and cupcakes along with tea, of course!

All vintage wares and art works should be affordable ranging from under £5 to £500 at most please.

I am still looking for vintage stall holders and artists to take part so please do get in touch for further details, and/or a booking form.
