Thank you!


A huge thank you to everyone who came to our May Bank Holiday market last weekend. It was a great turn-out and a special thank you to everyone who was involved in our brilliant charity Dog Show!

We are super excited to announce that we are back on Saturday 6th June at Hornsey Town Hall in the heart of Crouch End. This is our second market in this iconic building and this time we will be in the fantastic main hall - see photo.



We think this provides the perfect setting for our vintage goodies! This building has recently reopened to the public so its a treat to be able to see inside such an amazing time-warp - and even better to hold a vintage market there!

We will be showcasing over 45 carefully selected vendors - a lot of our regular favourites as well as a few newbies...


Our market also coincides with the excellent Crouch End Festival. There will be heaps going on all day - arts, music, drama, spoken word, poetry, photography and workshops - so why not make a day of it?

We really hope to see you there...

Call for doggies - Sunday 3rd May!



We are back at St Mary's Parish Hall on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd May. On the Sunday we are really excited to be hosting our third annual Dog Show in aid of North London Hospice!

Last year's event was a runaway success with dogs of all shapes and sizes and plenty of local media attention - as well as raising some great funds for a really important local charity.  

Please support a great cause by coming to watch and donate from 2.30pm on Sunday 3rd or, even better, entering your pooch for the Show!

Our four categories are:

 - Best Turned Out Dog and Owner
 - Best Attitude
 - Best Rough Diamond (our favourite!)
 - Best Puppy (under one year old)

To register, please email your name, your dog's name and your chosen category to lucywelsh@yahoo.co.uk. You can enter more than one category if you wish. 

You are also welcome to turn up on the day with your doggie to enter.  

There is a suggested donation of £3 per dog. We will have a selection of brilliant prizes donated by local businesses including 2 x tickets to see a play of your choice at the excellent Park Theatre in Finsbury Park. 

Please do spread the word about our Dog Show to any canine lovers and owners who might like to come along.  

Save the date and hope to see you on Sunday 3rd May!

Back at The Stable Yard, Hatfield House Sunday April 26th!

Thanks to our 40 fantastic traders and all the punters who braved the rain to pop along to our second fair in our new satellite venue The Stable Yard, Hatfield House last weekend! 


We can't wait to be back in this atmospheric historical location on Sunday April 26th from 10-4pm, bringing with us another 40 superb vintage traders selling everything from ceramics, fabrics, clothing, lighting, posters and prints, furniture, kitchenalia, gardening ware and lots more from the early 1900's to the 1970's!

Don't forget, we're an indoor market and will be over two floors at the beautiful Riding School venue in the Stable Yard meaning you can get warm if the weather takes a turn, or sun yourself in the courtyard if the Spring rays decide to come out! The Stable Yard shops, boutiques and restaurant will all be open too, and Hatfield House and grounds will also be open to the public, meaning you can make a day of it!






Hope to see you there - Sunday April 26th 10-4pm!
