Winter Fairs

Dorothy Stiven. Reclaimed Home Fair, Chipping Norton.

Now that Guy Fawkes Night is over I am feeling that we are in the run up to Christmas! My stand at Station Mill Antiques is full of treasures for your home for the winter…lovely quilts, old wooden tables for those festive meals you may be having come December, china and glass and lots of gift ideas including these sweet Russian dolls. No fairs this month but on Sunday the 2nd of December I will be at Homeworks, at the Salusbury School in Queens Park in North West London from 10- 2pm. This is a wonderful fair, teeming with designers and makers alongside some great vintage finds from Lorna ( Rosemont Vintage) and me. And, as it’s beside the Farmers Market, you can pick up some delicious artisan food products too.

Don’t forget if you are looking for something in particular just email me and I can tell you if I have it in stock.

And thanks to all of you who came to The Reclaimed Home Fair in Chipping Norton on Saturday 27th of October. It was a great day and we were so pleased that so many of you came along and bought from us. It really makes such a difference to shop small so we thank you so much for your support. Our next one is on Saturday 30 March where we will be welcoming Spring with our beautifully styled stands.

Hope to see some of you before Christmas…in the meantime enjoy the gorgeous Autumn weather.

The second Reclaimed Home Fair is almost upon us and I hope many of you will manage to get along to the Town Hall in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire OX7 5NJ from 10-4pm on Saturday 27 October as it is going to be a great day! This is the Fair I run with Heather Lawson of @hellish44 and again we have a great line up of wonderful stalls. If you are on Instagram you can follow us @thereclaimedhomefair to get a flavour of all the fantastic antiques, vintage, decorative interiors and unique hand made gifts that will be on offer. And if you haven’t visited Chipping Norton before, I can vouch that it is a great little Cotswolds town with fab cafes and shops, and, of course, the excellent Station Mill Antiques Centre where I have a stand. Entry to the Fair is only £1, with teas and home made cakes available to buy all day too.

Also we are running an Instameet from 1-2.30pm, hosted by one of our favourite Instagrammers @vintage_dahling, taking place in the downstairs hall which will be a great opportunity to meet fellow IGers in person.

So, clear your diaries for the 27th, get yourselves to Chipping Norton, introduce yourselves and find lots of unique items for you and your home into the bargain!

September has been a busy month for us selling at some really lovely Fairs. First up was Catesby’s in Exton, Rutland which was such a treat as it was in such beautiful surroundings and organised with such care and love by Jonathon and Neil. I hadn’t visited that part of the country before but was really taken by the area. Look out for their Christmas fair and do visit if you can. There will be some lovely things to buy and their cakes are utterly delicious! Then it was on to an old favourite, Queens Park Day in NW London. I have been doing this one with Lorna of Rosemont Vintage for about twenty years now and I can honestly say it just gets better and better. Just the right blend of summer fete, stalls and entertainment for all the family in one of the nicest parks in London.  Then the last Fair of the month was the Country Brocante, at Daylesford in Kingham in Oxfordshire where, despite the rain, customers flooded in to snap up all the wonderful things on sale. Another not to be missed for the future if you haven’t already visited.

So now we look to October and a big date for us…yes, Saturday the 27th October is the second Reclaimed Home Fair which I organise with Heather Lawson of @hellishdesigns.  We had our first event in April in the Town Hall in Chipping Norton and it was a huge success…fabulous stalls with a great range of vintage sellers as well as some really creative makers. We are working hard to make the second similarly wonderful so please come along and visit us in the Town Hall in the centre of the town. Entry is just £1 and we also have a little tea bar with homemade cakes. We will also have a special event in the downstairs hall during the Fair…more details to follow. To keep up to date follow us on Instagram @thereclaimedhomefair

But before then I must get out searching for treasures. I have various buying trips coming up so please follow me on Instagram @dorothystiven to see what I find along the way!

Hope to see you soon.

Summer news


I have been very neglectful of my website of late as have been posting on Instagram see @dorothystiven, but a couple of people have told me they like popping in here so I will try and remember to update more frequently! Firstly thanks to all of tour lovely customers who came to buy from me and Lorna (@rosemontlondon) at the Barnes Fair yesterday. It must have been one of the hottest and one of the biggest Barnes Fairs we’ve seen and we think we have had a stand there for at least 15 years. It’s always a great Fair for us, my only regret is that we always are so busy we never get a chance to go around an visit the other fantastic stalls! So, stock is much depleted, but don’t worry as I will be out buying over the next few weeks both in the UK and France in the run up to my next Fairs. Which, if you can make it along, are…Queens Park Day in North West London on Sunday 16 September where you will find me, again with Lorna, in our usual gazebo with our usual black and white flooring so do look out for us. And don’t forget if you are looking out for anything in particular then drop me an email before then to and I’ll see if I can help.

After that it’s the beautiful Country Brocante at Daylesford in Kingham, Gloucs on Saturday 22 September alongside the Harvest Festival. This is not to be missed! It is absolutely gorgeous day out in a wonderful location with really beautiful stands. I will give you more info nearer the time but put it in your diary now!

And another date for your diaries is the Reclaimed Home Fair (@thereclaimedhomefair) which I run with the super stylish Heather Lawson (@hellish44). That’s in the Town Hall in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, on Saturday 27 October from 10-4pm. We had a fantastic inaugural event in April and I’m totally confident the second will be every bit as wonderful… a lovely selection of stands, very nice teas and cake in a beautiful venue.

Well that’s probably enough to keep you going! I need to get on and get out treasure hunting!

Hope to see you in the months ahead.
