Established in 2010, the seasonal MK Handmade & Vintage Fair has grown to become one of the most prestigious events of its kind in the UK and covers Clothing, Homewares, Gifts, Accessories, Treats, Art and much more.
Every item featured at the event is a one-off, making the event the perfect addition to the broad line-up of retailers and brands at the centre.
This seasons see’s the addition of some especially unique traders including Luke Black – a nature artist/sculptor who will be doing live sculpting at the event, ‘Ling’s Things’ with Ling herself hand-making the intricate glass beads that are used in her beautiful jewellery, Dino Vescara – a real character with the very best vintage records around and not forgetting the ‘Cabinet of Natural Curiosities’ featuring an array of weird and wonderful Victoriana taxidermy displays!
Kevin Duffy at centre:mk commented: “Attracting visitors from across the region, we are excited to be welcoming Handmade & Vintage back to centre:mk this Autumn. We cannot wait to see what the craftspeople and traders bring along for our guests. The event is a real treasure trove of original, high quality, affordable treats and products, and it is great to be able to support these amazing independent businesses.”
