Something Old Something New Vintage and Handmade Market , you can witness demos, taste Vintage teas, and maybe pick up a few vintage and handmade goodies along the way. Join us on Twitter or Facebook to join our discussions on War Brides then and now, and also what did you have for something old, something new?
Craft and Design Month is a ‘not for profit’ initiative launched by craft&design magazine. The magazine’s editor, Angie Boyer, explains: “There are many thousands of craftsmen and women who manufacture and sell their products in the UK and to the overseas markets who are completely overlooked by newspapers reporting on the demise of domestic manufacturing.
“Crafts is incredibly important to the economy but also to our wellbeing and way of life. If we don’t use the talents of people on our doorstep, they will disappear forever. We hope that by shining the spotlight on the skills of craftsmen and women throughout the country, the general public will think twice about who to go to when they need something for the home. If we succeed in that, Craft and Design Month will have served its purpose.”
