|Such a beautiful location!|
Katie and Annabelle have been running the Pop-Up Fairs in Sussex since April 2012 – you may have seen my post here about the Christmas Fair just before I popped! They started Pop-Up Vintage as there was a gap in the market for vintage fairs in the Hassocks area, and it’s expanded from there! You can tell they’re both completely dedicated to these fairs, and were rushed off their feet – I did manage to get a photo of them together though.

|Janet with her lovely stall of goodies!|
|Even four-legged friends enjoy a good Vintage Fair!|
|Faded Rose Vintage. Aren’t these vintage tins utterly beautiful?|
|Big Tree Little Moose. My favourite stall of the day with the lovely local Clara! More below.|
|Annabel Gordon Designs. Wonderful pictures and vintage postcards – all handmade by Annabel, who started the business as she couldn’t find anything appropriate for her children’s nursery. A lady after my own heart!|
|Crabbitt & Co. My Mutti is a big fan of Lorna’s work! Lorna is a Pop-Up Vintage regular, and is lovely!|
|Handmade & Vintage. Gorgeous fabrics and other vintage bits and bobs! Trudy is another Pop-Up Vintage regular.|
|Jessie Jumbles. Yay! I finally got to meet the famous Jessie Jumbles!|
|Annie B Vintage. Do you remember my kitsch china deer from my Christmas post? Annie was back with even more fabulous, kitsch items! I loved this squirrel bowl… I think Nick would’ve raised his eyebrows at me if I’d bought it though.|
There was wonderful entertainment from Helena Kaldalons, a fabulous jazz and swing singer.
My vintage (and handmade) wares.
Awesome pheasant dessert plates: 6 for £3. Cake is going to look even more tasty on these, and what a bargain! I didn’t get the name of the stall holder as her husband was looking after it for her.
Thelwell fabric!!! £2 for a FQ. I love Thelwell – and I can’t wait to make Busby something fun out of this. Handmade & Vintage.
Taggie blanket for Busby: £7. I had a lovely chat with the stall holder Clara of Big Tree Little Moose, and I can’t wait to check out her Etsy shop, as she had some truly beautiful items that she crafts by hand. The blanket is already a favourite in this household!
The next fair is on Saturday 13th July 2013 in the normal venue: Adastra Hall, Hassocks. You can follow Annabelle and Katie on Twitter as @pop_upfairs or find them on Facebook.
