Middleton Hall goes all handmade and vintage

Date Posted:20/10/2015

MK Handmade and Vintage Market31 OCTOBER - 1 NOVEMBER, Middleton Hall, in front of John Lewis in centre:mk, will be once again transformed into a treasure trove of 128 colourful indoor market stalls, a paradise for lovers of the unusual and unique. For savvy shoppers who aren’t slaves to high street trends and prices, the event offers an eclectic mix of thousands of craftsman-made and vintage items you won’t find in the shops... And this is the Christmas special!

With its high reputation for quality, originality and affordable prices attracting visitors from across the country, this quarterly event invites the cream of our region's independent craftspeople, vintage/retro sellers and artists – an eclectic mix and an exceptional range of talents.

Forget Brighton or Camden – this huge market is right on our doorstep, it’s indoors, and every item is unique - bought-in retail goods are not permitted.
For those who haven’t visited before, it’s quite a spectacle and a day out with a great atmosphere. Uniquely for an event with exhibitors of this calibre, there is NO admission charge either!

Event organiser, Jacqui Lewis ... “ Our standards are high and our carefully selected mix of exhibitors offer everything from furniture to fashions, from jewellery to jukeboxes; the gorgeous, the cool and the quirky – all exhibitors passionate about what they do and ready to take bespoke commissions.
This is our final event of 2015 so this is the opportunity to buy a whole Christmas shopping list all in one place. For those who want to make their gifts extra special and unusual this year and want to buy at the best possible prices ... this grand finale event to the year is the opportunity!"
