A big hello to all the hardy individuals that we met at Petworth Christmas Fair this past weekend. The weather might not have been in our favour at times (we even saw some snow during set-up!) but we can honestly say that we had a fabulous time chatting to you all and showing off some of our finest smaller items. Please feel free to give us a call in the coming weeks if a particular item caught your eye (or a loved ones eye!) as we may still be able to help you find the perfect gift, and remember that it's the Christmas light switch on in Emsworth on Friday, so we will be open late with another opportunity for you to browse our Christmas stock!
Being the child of an antique dealer can be a mixed blessing - you get dragged around more than your fair share of trade shows and on bad days you have to wait out what seem like eternities at auctions, but...... on good days you become Chalcrafts' vintage-toy-tester-in-chief!
So yesterday was definitely a good day, with Henry being allowed to test out all the vintage toy stock for our stand this coming weekend at Petworth Christmas Fair.
You'll find us in the outside stalls with a festive selection of occasional furniture, gorgeous glassware to brighten the Christmas table and a large selection toys of yesteryear. From cars to trikes, robots to rocking horses, you can be assured that they have all received our new expert's seal of approval!
Arriving in the post this morning were these leaflets reminding us that yet again we are hastily arriving at the festive period.
That time of year that promises so much, yet so often, can leave you deflated and disenchanted. With this in mind, here at Chalcrafts, we are making it our aim to bring the fun and wonder back to your Christmas shopping.
We have yet again been squirreling away our choicest stock to bring you best of vintage and antique shopping at one of the circuits most enjoyable
Find our stand of Christmas loveliness and treasures at
