The fair at the winter gardens was amazing, the best one yet, there was so many amazing stalls, acts and customers, we had a blast. There seemed to be a different feel to the fair, more relaxed and calm. We had some new entertainers too which went down a treat with the public and stallholders including belly dancers, a 1940s trumpet player Ricky Hunter and singer/songwriter Karima Francis. The regular entertainers from Preston came too including Baxter Rhodes, Jamie Brewer, Bill Orrick, Katie Ryan and Mobius loop.
There was some new food stalls too including Old fatty Jones who makes unusual jams and preserves, his monkey butter was a sure fire winner with customers, The Real Thai pie company who had the most delicious thai curry pies, I tried the beef and the veggie option, great pastry, lovely filling, all british meat too. As always the Love Cheesecake boys and Cupcake were there selling the best in sweet treats.
We was super busy in our vintage tearoom, in fact I had to set more tables up!
We had a new set up this time to with Hazel Tyler on vintage hair and make up make overs, The Vintage Wardrobe providing clothes and Claire Griffiths taking photographs, our vintage photo booth was a big success.
There was new and regular stalls, too many to mention but all wonderful.
We had a raffle to adopt a donkey and the winner Christine Jennings won an array of handmade and vintage treats all provided by our kind stallholders.
If you missed out this time on visiting dont panic there are two more dates for this year, 29-30th June and 30th Nov-1st Dec at the winter gardens.
