The Vintage Village No Sleep 'Til Christmas Fair

What’s that jingling sound I hear?  It’s . . .

The Vintage Village No Sleep ’Til Christmas Fair!

When: Sunday 13th December 2015, 10.00am to 4.00pm.
Where: Stockport Covered Market Hall SK1 1EU.
How much: £2.00 entry, concessions £1.50, under 12s FREE.

Who doesn’t love Christmas?  The tinsel and sparkles, Santa and his sleigh, the sack of presents, the joyful children, the groaning dinner table laden with food, the groaning bellies afterwards, the rubbish on telly, the credit card bills in January. 

Ok, maybe not everyone loves Christmas, but you’ve got to love a good vintage fair or you wouldn’t be reading this!

Our multi-award winning fair is the ideal opportunity to gather some unique and stylish gifts to delight your hard-to-please family and friends.  Or just buy something nice for yourself - and bah humbug to all that Christmas palaver! - from up to 70 stalls heaped with dazzling arrays of genuine vintage items for ladies, gentlemen and the home.

✭  Live DJing from the immaculately cool Club Interzone (not Twisted Sisters as previously advertised, apologies).

✭  UPDATE!  Cancer Research UK (Withington Branch) will be holding a raffle for a fabulous fabric flower picture handmade by Jodi-Jo-Retro.  The draw is at 2.30-3.00pm, and all proceeds go to CRUK.
