Vintage in a Tea Cup
Saturday 10th December in St Agnes Methodist Church from 10.30 – 4.30 will be another glorious morning poring over hand-crafted vintage and retro (1920 -1980 –maybe a bit of 90) clothes, crockery, jewellery, textiles and furniture. The return of the popular vintage fair in Aggie.

Siobhan recently emailed me to tell me that they now host their fab vintage fare in Frock in Heaven in St Agnes too: 54 Vicarage Road, to be precise. Check them out there if you can’t make the fair.
The gorgeous Mother/ Daughter team, Tina and Siobhan, started their business venture this year: ‘Edith Gray’ – named after Great Granma who has inspired a love of all things vintage and craft. They began selling out of a suitcase (antique of course) at Churchtown Arts in St Agnes village, when an entrepreneurial spirit took hold and they decided to organise their own fairs to sell the wares of Edith Gray.
From 12 stalls at the first event to a now packed out venue, all the goodies are either handmade or original pieces. ‘Vintage is such an ambiguous term’, says Siobhan, and ‘yesterday’ can be only too recent or mass produced. They have thus created something that is not only totally on trend with British revival, upcycling and a love of all things vintage; but a brand that sits as a lifestyle – taking the commercial out of vintage: how refreshing.
Wayne Hemingway, fashion designer and co-founder of Red or Dead, recently put on an upscaled version of Vintage in a Tea Cup at Southbank, London; but I doubt it has as much heart as the vintage fair happening this Saturday. With a sense of nostalgia, stories galore and a history of each garment this is a micro gem in the crafty world of vintage fare.
