and in answer to all the requests. . .

The time's simply flown since my first post telling you I'd booked the hall!
In answer to the questions you've asked. . .
The hall will be open for setting-up from 7.30am.
Quite a lot of dealers have asked me about early trade entry. I very much appreciate trade coming to buy, but I feel early entry is not right for this fair. The fair opens to all at 10 a.m
Double stalls have two 6ft tables and as many chairs as you need. There's also room for a card table and clothes rail.
Single stalls have one 6ft table and as many chairs as you need. There's also room for a small card table OR small clothes rail.
If you want to bring items of furniture or something that might not fit on your stall, I'll try my hardest find a space for it SOMEWHERE in the hall. There's a small raised stage which I've kept free for "extras", so if you have room in the car bring it along!
Tables should be covered with cloths that reach to the floor.

Not having set up shop for such a long time, I confess I'm feeling a tad apprehensive about re-creating the "look" that used to flow so effortlessly twice a week on my round of regular fairs.
Rummaging through the linen cupboard for inspiration I found the scrumptous string of polka-dot and shabby floral bunting that I won in the Winnibriggshouse Giveaway earlier this year.
Handmade by Jenny, it even has my name embroidered on it, so how perfect is that. . .and what better colour scheme to use on the stall than red and white!

Uncannily, the photo on the flyers really DID capture the feel of the fair!
Thankyou Lizzie; even though you've been so busy with The Bazaar and your many other commitments, you still took time to display
Vintage at the Village Hall advertising on the front desk. . .and "heartfelt thankyous" is what this post is all about.
I've been so touched by all the interest and help promoting my fair and want you to know it's really appreciated. So much has come from people I've never even met!
Stallholders at The Bazaar, and other antique fairs and markets who have taken stacks of flyers
Shopkeepers, Antique Centres, all the workplaces, business premises and community centres who have displayed posters and flyers
Advice and The Voice of Experience from other Fair holders!
My lovely stallholders who have done, are doing and are going to do posts for the fair on their blogs
Our local printer for displaying the poster in his window and photocopying it foc for a lady who enquired about the details!
Emails I've received from fellow bloggers around the county offering to distribute flyers. . .
the list goes on and on, and there's still 4 weeks to go!!!

ooooooh I just LOVE this quirky vintage 1930s theatrical prop mannequin, her linen body is covered in Union Jack flag bunting!
Now, the dilemma is. . .do I get to keep her :))). . . or will she go to the Village Hall??
For me or not for me. . .that IS the question!
