The venue, Cairn Bay Lodge is a beautiful 1930s Guest House on the Ballyholme Bay in Bangor, the view over the bay is lovely. On a clear day you can see Scotland on the horizon! The house is full of original period features and just a perfect place for a vintage fair.
Stalls and sellers were all scattered throughout the downstairs rooms. We were set up on an antique sideboard in the dining room - how different from our usual market stall! Outside, the outhouses and beautiful garden hosted more sellers and an old-fashioned lemonade stand, with afternoon tea complete with vintage china and cupcakes. I managed to get a sneak peek around the fair before the visitors arrived.
