Dee has been a hobbyist collector/ trader for over 30 years and a shopkeeper for nearly 10 years.
Having assisted her husband Joe in his event security business security for 30 years also, has a wealth of experience in not only trading, but in many different events.
The organiser of the Jukebox and Retro fair at Brighton (now approaching it's 9th year), www.jukeboxandretrofair.co.uk and the newer Chessington fair of the same name. This is now a good, well established fair and with the emphasis on rock n roll, rockabilly continues to be a fun filled event.
We both used to love Merton Abbey Mills weekend market before the developers moved in and with this in mind along with the fading antique fairs, it was decided therefore not to specialise at this particular monthly event, but instead hoping to bring everyone a cheaper, nice, regular marketplace of varying goods, to provide a show case for local talented craftworkers and cottage industries (that all too easily get overlooked in the mass commercialism in this country). With Chessington World Of Adventures a short walk away, Vintage Zoo is our chosen name for this variety fair.
We have a separate website for this fair which is www.vintagezoo.co.uk
We hope you share our vision for this.
The Psychic and Holistic fair is somewhat of an indulgence as apart from being able to sell my own shops stock of beautiful incense and new age items at this fair, ( as I run a new age shop with my son Rick called Budworks on Stoneleigh Broadway). I am also a spiritualist.
It is with this in mind that I wanted to to organise a fair that's intention is close to my heart, whilst Joe this time gets to do the meeting and greeting of our customers!
Again, in trying to organise a more climatically suited reasonably priced fair, I hope the stallholders will adopt the approach of working alongside me to bring the customers a nice fair, and accomodate their clients needs within.
The website for our psychic and holistic fairs is www.psychicandholistic.co.uk
I have been quite blunt and to the point regarding the fairs info on the relevant pages, but this is to clarify many questions previously asked, and to help you also.
I will do my best for you and I hope you enjoy the fairs being organised.
Vintage Zoo Fairs are held monthly.
Psychic & Holistic Fairs are every four months.
Jukebox and Retro Fair is twice a year.
