Lancaster’s Victorian rooms will burst open with vintage crafts as the sixth independent market comes to the city.

On Saturday November 21, for one day only, the Storey building will host the Handmade and Vintage Festive Market.

Organised and curated by Suzy Jones and Kit Abramson, The Handmade and Vintage Festive Market, gives freelance creators, small businesses, vintage enthusiasts and artists a platform for their work and an opportunity to test their market, as well as providing a boost for the independent sector.

Designers will showcase an array of homemade, pop and vintage influenced gifts, knick-knacks and curiosities.

Almost 50 stalls spill from the first floor providing a special festive shopping experience in one of the most historic buildings in Lancaster.

Up and coming artists, designers and makers from across the North West will sell original, affordable goods.

Last years event offered customers a wonderful array of vintage object d’art, bags and hats alongside jewellery carved from buoys, intricate pinhole photographs, stunning tweed textiles, historic prints, exquisite embroidery, graphic novels, artisan silver, folk art, contemporary ceramics and perfectly designed stationery.

Some of this year’s highlights includes beautifully screen printed home wares by illustrator Teresa Kirk, 
bespoke poetry writing service, sweet trinket toys and giant colouring posters for children and laser cut jewellery.
