"Nostalgic Mix Fair" Totnes, October 9th in the Civic Hall, High Street, Totnes

Introducing the "Nostalgic Mix" fair ... featuring a mix of vintage, retro and handmade delights!

Since starting blogging I have been inspired by the posts detailing all of the lovely vintage fairs and by my visits to the Vintage and Handmade fair in Chipping Sodbury and so ...... after much deliberation and helpful conversations with friends ..... Totnes is to have its own fair arranged by This'n'That!
It will be in the Civic Hall on Saturday, October 9th. That is the hall which spans our open market so it's really handy for the centre of town, exploring the market stalls and shops, enjoying the town's great foodie places and it is just across the way from the main car parks.
I will be sorting a plan and table prices early next week and fortunately already have some names on a provisional list. If you would like to receive details and/or go onto the list please email me on the link on right column of my blog.
I am going to set up a linked blog with info on the event, places to stay etc. once I've got the booking paperwork sorted.
I know that so many Totnes folk go all over the place to buy or sell at vintage fairs and I thought it about time that we had one of our own :-)

  5. How exciting Lesley. Good luck with it all. Shall keep a look out for all the information but sadly doubt if I'll be able to get there.

  6. Hi Lesley

    Plan chest is now sold but I think it was somewhere around the £350/£400 mark. Not absolutely certain though!


  7. Hi Lesley, thanks for stopping by, I'll wait to see your info on the Nostalgic Mix blog, but I think this will be a bit too far for me to go :( Sounds fantastic though, all the best with it!
