Magpies wanted for Vintage & Handmade at the Lanes!


 The wonderful, long running, Gimme Shelter Fair held at The Lanes has asked for some Magpies to join their nest!

The Gimme Shelter Vintage, Handmade & Vinyl Fair, that has been running since 2009, is looking for some extra traders as they look to expand on the already popular event. The Fair is held within The Lanes, which is a cool retro style 1950’s bowling dinner inside, and a wonderful 1930’s building on the outside. A perfect location too, next to Student halls and the busy Cabot Circus. Also the free Sunday parking is another bonus!

They are looking for some Magpies to attend the next event on September 7th, and the ones to follow. You will trade alongside their regular and popular vintage traders, offering quality on-trend vintage. They have also introduced a selection of local ‘Etsy’ traders. This is a great opportunity for Etsy traders to promote their local independent businesses & for designers to show their handmade & vintage products in the ‘flesh‘.

Another corking idea is the on-site seamstress, offering alterations for items bought at the fair that day. Perfect for that vintage must have that needs a little hem snipping! Also when weather permits the have traders in the large garden, as well as live acoustic music. 

So fancy joining? We are looking for vintage traders and Etsy style handmade makers. We want on-trend vintage, as well as the classic. The handmade & Etsy traders need to be offering current and well executed wares. This market is heavier visited by the nearby student halls and the Sunday shoppers from the city centre, so a mixed audience.
