ORMSKIRK’S series of summer vintage and handmade fairs will come to a close on Sunday, August 25.
The final fair will see 55 stalls at Market Way and Chapel Gallery which will include a treasure trove of unique, vintage goods on offer, including true vintage homewares, papercrafts, handmade trinkets, upcycled jewellery, food created by independent producers and much more.
Councillor David Sudworth said on the success of the fairs: “We are thrilled that the handmade fairs have attracted thousands of people to Ormskirk. I would encourage everyone to continue to support our talented creative businesses and enjoy a memorable visit.”
West Lancashire Borough Council has been organising the fairs which have helped boost the careers of local creative traders, and they hope that similar events can happen in the future.
Thousands of people have flocked to attend the fairs over the past few months, and this finale promises to be the best yet for vintage enthusiasts and families to enjoy the vintage and handmade goods, musical performances and food.
The final fair will be open from 10am until 4pm and there is free entry.
