Seven years ago Paul and I signed the lease for the shop. Since then it has evolved from (what was intended to be)an 'Antiques and Collectables' shop into it's current 'Nostalgic Mix of old and new'.
We've had such fun and made lots of new friends.
We have added greetings cards and wrap, assorted gift lines and the ever popular stocking fillers for grown ups.
In 2010 I started up Nostalgic Mix Fairs with one in 2010, two in 2011 and already have two planned for 2012 when there will be two more Nostalgic Mix vintage fairs.
Paul and I have decided not to renew the lease and will be closing at the end of January. It took us a while to come to the decision but it's the right one for us.
I will, at long last, have time to really concentrate on the blog plus some selling on line.
Also, in addition to our own fairs I hope to be able to book in for others. This'n'That will be at Lizzie's Vintage Rag Market in Frome at the end of June and hopefully we will be at the Vintage and Handmade Fair in Chipping Sodbury in December.
I hope that you will continue to follow the blog and that your patience will, at long last, be rewarded with regular posts!! Yes Helen really!!
Hopefully many of our friends will be able to call in before we close.
There will be a sale in the shop in January and lots of our gift and card lines are already discounted.
(Booking forms for the 2012 fairs will be winging their way out after Christmas.)
