I'm trying to get to this fair, but my usual transport will be in London doing Ally Pally (with which it clashes this time). I'd much rather stall locally than travel down at silly-a.m. the day before for some fair at the other end of the country. Laughter

are there no other antique collectors in your town? I would think they'd welcome an offer to share petrol costs

I've not heard good things about trying to sell.... well, anything.... at Grimsthorpe. Bit of an uphill battle, apparently.

The fair was held in a lovely village with a lovely pub.

Naturally it was quite a small affair (about 200 stalls) but the goods for sale were interesting (to me) so I enjoyed my visit and would go again

Couldn't be any worse than Ally Pally, which was a bit of a snoozer.

Seems half of London buggered off for the weekend to escape this wedding nonsense - the roads were very much dead on the Sat night between Ally Pally & Heathrow! Shocked

I did go and agree with DantheMan. I did spend some money there too, but nothing too exciting.
