For the last 5 weeks, The Little have been hosting ‘Vintage Mondays’ – they have been great fun and really successful, but we’re changing the way things work so that we can make them even bigger and better!
As of Monday 2nd April, The Little will hold ‘Vintage Mondays’ in the cinema, and the ‘St Michael’s Centre’ next door will be hired for a vintage/retro night market! (It’s a great vintage location with tea/coffee making facilities, toilets and a beautiful bay window.)
This means that you can get dolled up, potter around the market, have a vintage make-over, head in to The Little to see a film (with old-fashioned uniforms, usherettes and intervals) and then pop back into the market for tea/coffee and cakes! What an evening!
There is currently space for 10 stalls, each pitch having space for one large ‘catering’ type table (c. 2 meters) and space in front to provide depth to your stall. The market itself will run from 5pm-9pm for the public, but is open from 4-5pm for setting up, and 9pm-10pm for clearing away.
Although there is no parking, there is space for unloading to the left of The Little (next to the Thermae Spa) – so after unloading, you will have to find a space to park your car for the evening.
The pitches are currently only £6 each for our first market, which is an extremely competitive price, and although subsequent stalls may be priced slightly higher, we aim to keep each pitch around £10 or under.
We are looking for a range of vintage and retro stalls from the 20s, right through to the 70s, hopefully with a range or clothing/accessories, ceramics, glassware, bric-a-brac, fabric, kitchenalia, books, jewellery and small furniture pieces. (A selection and variety you’d normally expect at a vintage/retro market.)
If you are at all interested in booking a stall, or know someone who might be, please do not hesitate to contact me.
NB. We may also need a couple of volunteers on the night to serve tea/coffee and cakes – so if that sounds like something you’d like to do to get into the vintage/retro scene and meet the guys at The Little, please give me a buzz!
(I am an employee of The Little but will also be a stallholder on the night – a good ‘go-between’!)
