The Vintage Home Show, Chiswick

The venue for this show was ideal; the lovely Chiswick Town Hall which is a listed building with ornate stained glass windows, overlooking Turnham Green. Considering it was a Sunday morning, the traders were lively and there was a nice atmosphere in the air....there was even a vintage tea room serving refreshments in old tea sets!
There was a refreshingly different selection of stallholders from similar fairs that I have been to recently. I really liked the presence of old glass, vintage textiles, pottery and several robust typewriters! I came away with a tea-cup and saucer!
There was a £4 entry fee to this show - something I am never keen on - being charged to shop! Perhaps this could have been reduced to £2. How ever the prices inside were reasonable. Future shows planned in Manchester and Birmingham. For a full calendar, please see www.vintagehomeshow.co.uk
