Carry Somers – a designer for Pachacuti was interviewed at London Fashion Week 2012 and we were thrilled that she said this…

Where do you go in London to seek artistic inspiration?  “Living in the Staffordshire Peak District, one of my main reasons for travelling to London is to visit vintage fairs – always a good source of inspiration for hat shapes and finishes. The Vintage Fashion & Brocante Fair in Wanstead is my favourite.”

Pachacuti is recognised as one of the world’s pioneering Fair Trade brands.

Just a note to say thank you for organising such a lovely fair on  Saturday. I know the extra effort of making things beautiful and a  bit different is very hard work, but you’ll have people flocking back  and telling their friends. It was lovely to see something new in Wanstead -  DONNA

You did such a fantastic job organising yesterday’s fair. It was  brilliant and I was really impressed with the number of people who  came. You should be very proud of yourself organising such a great  event in a really good venue.  Everything looked beautiful and your tea area was lovely. I heard some  people commenting on how fab your menus were and what a lovely set-up  it was – LJ  

Yellow Advertiser – May 2011

Thank you so much for such a lovely day on Saturday.  Lots of people through the door and SPENDING and a very pleasant atmosphere. Loved the names for  the cakes which were delicious -  DEBORAH

I had a good fair yesterday, I have never sold so many bags in one fair! Met some old and new friends – Teresa

Brilliant Fair – wasn’t it? – Paul

Just a quick thank you for a great fair yesterday, I would have enjoyed it even if we didn’t sell much, but we did have a really busy day, the time just flew and we sold lots. There was such a great collection of vintage to cover every taste. I absolutely LOVED it.  Well done you did a great job – Kay & Margaret

Just to say we loved the Vintage Fair on Saturday and came away with a few bargains too! Well done for a great event – Helen
