Hello again, hope you’re keeping well.
First Date: 10th May 2013
It is just 10 short days before the next Cuckfield Vintage Emporium (CVE) event on 10th May at The Queen’s Hall, Cuckfield High Street. Doors open at 11.00 with £1 admission charge.
All your old favourites will be there, including beautiful painted furniture, wonderful antique fabrics and old textiles, vintage homeware, the clothes rails and those lovely scented gifts. But also lookout for some fabulous new additions such as, Sarah Howe of ‘Pocket & Pin’ with her haberdashery items, the girls from ‘Giggleberrytree’ selling decorative garden-ware and potted plants plus Kate Richards of ‘Iris & Arlo’ with a marvellous array of vintage goodies.
CVE is proud to sponsor CHICKS the charity that provides respite country holidays for Britain’s disadvantaged children. The way it works is simple, for every pound our visitors give to CHICKS, CVE will match it with a pound of our own, that means doubling the donation to this great cause. So, if you can, please give generously.
There will also be the ever popular Tea Room selling Fairtrade teas and coffees and piles of gorgeous homemade cakes, savouries and soft drinks for children. So after all the searching, tracking down and finding that special something from our brilliant stallholders, pop in and have a nice cuppa – you’ll have earned it!
We would love to see you again in Cuckfield, so hope you can make it.
Second Date: 31st May/ 1st June 2013
Our sister event on 31st May and 1st June is the huge 2-day Village Vintage Country Fair at Plumpton Racecourse from 10.00 in the morning; £4 on the gate. Whatever else you are doing this spring, make sure you are there if the country and vintage lifestyle is your thing – THIS IS THE BIG ONE!
But don’t take my word for it, Etc. Magazine (widely read throughout Sussex) has describe the event as the ‘Vintage Fair of the Year’ in an article on page 138 of its just published May edition.
And what about Country Homes & Interiors magazine naming Village Vintage as No. 1 in this month’s ‘3 of the best’ vintage fairs survey!!!! (No online version available yet unfortunately.)
All this comes in addition to the praise heaped on Village Vintage by Homes & Antiques magazine (the vintage community’s bible) in April when it was placed in the top 3 in a nationwide survey of vintage fairs.
The common thread with Village Vintage is, of course, Darcy who, together with her business partner and best friend, Lucy Haywood, launched Village Vintage as a start-up 4 years ago at the King Edward Hall, Lindfield. Since then the girls have gone from strength to strength.
Don’t forget, get these dates in your diary now: 10th May, Cuckfield Vintage Emporium, The Queen’s Hall, Cuckfield and Village Vintage Country Fair, Plumpton Racecourse over 2 days, 31st May & 1st June 2013.
If you are interested in exhibiting at either event please contact Darcy direct by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
