Welcome to Handmade & Vintage, a regular pop-up market in Stony Stratford, Milton Keynes. We are two mums with creative pasts, Nichola is a trained jewellery & surface pattern designer & was a visual merchandiser for Habitat and Shelly used to be found treading the boards in that there London. Then we had kids.

Several years later we emerged blinking into the sunlight & realised that the shops were filled with things we didn't really like but there was a wealth of artistic talent on our doorstep, so Handmade & Vintage was born. Our premise is simple, if it's handmade or vintage then it'll be at our market. A percentage of any profits will be donated to a different local charity after each event, so if you know of any worthy local causes then get in touch.

Our first event is:
Saturday May 15th 10am - 3pm
York House
London Road
Stony Stratford
MK11 1JQ

We'll have two floors of fabulous stall holders there, jewellers, feltmakers, Manga art, childrenswear, gorgeous vintage goodies from mid century homeware to American clothing. There will be a proper old-fashioned tea room complete with beautiful vintage china, so when you're shopped out you can put your feet up and have a cuppa & a slab of homemade victoria sponge to recouperate. We also have Betty, the coolest 1950's ice-cream van ever to grace the streets of Milton Keynes, selling locally made ice cream. Come by and say hello & see what unique treasures you can find and get that warm fuzzy glow that you're supporting local independent artists, crafters, sellers & charities.
