Festive shopping with bells on!

Love Christmas? You’ll adore the Southwell Vintage & Handmade Fair – Magic of Christmas Fair!  Friday 11th and Saturday 12th – get your skates on!!

We’ve brought an exquisite and eclectic mix of all things festive to East Bridgford Hill, a beautiful Georgian country house in the heart of Nottinghamshire. So you can tick off your ‘To Do’ list, while enjoying an irresistibly Christmassy day out.

As well as selling our vintage wares, vintage tea sets, vintage styled candles & vintage china cake stands, Darby & Joan Ltd will be styling the Orangery & the festive demo programme too. We are also supplying around 200 of our vintage tea cups, saucers & cake plates for your use, together with masses of our vintage cake stands & other christmassy bits. Phew!

We haven’t forgotten the guys…

Forget the last minute dash down the high street on Christmas Eve ─ or the online purchase that doesn’t arrive on time. One trip to the Magic of Christmas Fair is all you need to win your partner’s heart with a truly gorgeous gift. You’ll also find some great speciality beers, sloe gins and seasonal liquors, pungent cheeses and more, to help Christmas Day go with a swing!

This event is supporting Cancer Research UK. Proceeds from Ladies Day is going to the charity & collections will also be made on Saturday 12th.

So many lovely things – I have a feeling I might not be able to curb my spending…
