Hello & welcome to Ruby’s Vintage & Retro Fairs…
Ruby's are fabulous Vintage and Retro Fairs in the South East!
Hello and welcome to Ruby's Vintage & Retro Fair
We run regular fairs in the Old Town Hall in High Wycombe, the Beacon in Wantage, Millets Farm Centre in Frilford, nr Abingdon and now Wokingham and Warwickshire.
Each fair is full of vintage, retro & unique object d'art, jewellery, clothing, homeware, vintage and upcycled furniture and everything in between. No two fairs are the same which is why we have such a loyal following of visitors.
You can also sit down for a vintage style tea at our pop-up tea room.
We look forward to seeing you at our future events & do hope that you enjoy the vintage finds & many treasures as much as we do.

The day dawned bright and sunny with a beautiful vintage car parked outside the Beacon in Wantage to welcome our visitors … but it wasn’t Ruby. Instead Rita the Rover P5 who belongs to Jenny and Steve Storey of Hidden Treasures was stood up as Ruby failed to start despite running like a dream the day before. However, working on the basis that Better Late than Never, she turned up to keep Rita company but missed the pretty Austin A10 which arrived mid morning
Plenty of brave people made it to the Old Town Hall on Saturday 16th April despite the very wintry weather but they were assured of a warm welcome from everyone at Ruby’s.
We had our Ruby Regulars such as Anne Byard of Carnation Collectables with her always popular Ertswilder jewellery as well as hand made circular skirts and matching waistcoats for the chaps, Marie Amor and Pat Chapin with a stall each of sparkly jewellery and other accessories, Sharon Brown with loads of vintage handbags, more fabulous rhinestone jewellery from Marianne at All That Glitters as well as a very fine selection of true vintage dresses from Sue MacGibbon of Paper Petticoats. If that perfect vintage dress was proving elusive, then Frilly Chantilly had modern reproduction vintage dresses in lots of sizes.
Saturday 19th March and Ruby had made the journey to Millets Farm Centre near Abingdon the evening before, getting up to 50mph on the A34 – not bad for a lady over 70.
She parked up near the entrance to the Lakeview restaurant, where the first Ruby’s Vintage and Retro Fair of 2016 was being held. It was an extremely cold day, no hint of Spring but that did not deter visitors flocking in to the first fair we have held at this wonderful attraction.
(Lyn) Some of you may know that I am lucky enough to spend a fair amount of time in the USA, mainly Arizona and I am able to bring back various vintage items from my shopping trips to consignment stores, thrift shops, antique malls and the like.
We would love to hear from you!
