Join us:

Crafty Vintage has been established for over 12 years and is one of the leading craft, food and vintage fair organisers in the North West.
We go to great lengths on marketing our events and pulling out all the stops to ensure our exhibitors are looked after before and during our events. We have a fantastic visitor following all across the North and exhibitors are selected carefully for their produce and/or products.​

We choose castles, towers and old mills, prestigious and stunning locations to showcase your products. Our "family festivals" are very popular, with live entertainment, artisan and streetfood, magic and circus shows, sometimes theatre productions too!



Meet our team:

Anchor 1

We had a little idea back in 2011 to hold a small fair in a Church Hall, to bring together friendly and creative folk to sell their collections of vintage, retro wares, collectables and handmade delights.

There are so many talented people out there, that we soon needed larger venues to hold our fairs and our Crafty Vintage Weekenders quickly gathered momentum. We now produce many events across the North West that attract thousands of visitors per day and host areas within other events across the UK.

Founded by our family team, Laura, Dave & Dan Johnson, Crafty Vintage was formed to create the perfect retail environment for small independent traders to flourish. Typically in spectacular and interesting venues in which the whole family can enjoy.

Over the years, additional elements have been introduced including a varied lineup entertainment, live music and DJ's. Street food is also very much on the menu, with an array of trucks presenting international flavours.  


We're always open to exploring new ideas, locations and working with cool creative folk.
