Celebrate in style

The Make and Mend Market is now the grand old age of two and to celebrate we’re having an extra special market event this Sunday 28th March. This will be at the new time of 12noon - 5pm in our homeland of the Star and Shadow Cinema, Ouseburn, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 2NP, UK.

We’ll have 20 stalls of goodies for you to feast your eyes on from some of the best creative local talent as well as a host of vintage and 2nd hand traders offering you some retro bargains. Heres a sneaky peek at some of the sellers we’ll have this time round:

  • Black Flame books will be in residence with a huge variety of 2nd hand literature for all you book worms out there.
  • Pinnies for Hinnies will be offering their handmade retro chic aprons for the domestic goddess in your life.
  • Dolls and Molls offering their super-cute kitsch accesories and jewellery.
  • Artist Emma McClaughlin offering her beautiful original artwork.
  • Alan Edge will be bringing his great taste in music in the form of all things vinyl.
  • Louise Bradley will be setting up shop with her enormous array of uber-cool retro and vintage homeware.
  • Vintage fashion from Coco Love Boutique.
As well as the usual fab stalls we’ll also be bringing some nibbley snacky things to get you in the party mood. Plus we also have a number of guest musicians playing which we're really excited about. Phil Tyler & friends will be serenading us with their beautiful brand of alternative folk and we've just had confirmation that Emil Friis from Copenhagen, a wonderful Folk / Blues / Country artist who is currently touring the UK will also be doing a set.
Also we have some members of the Monster Ceilidh Band giving us a tune as well as Staggering' John Lee and his guitar. The bands will be on some time after 2.30pm.

Entry is free as always so people can come see some fantastic bands as well as scope out the local creative talent an grab a 2nd hand retro/vintage bargain.

  1. Print out pictures of your dream kitchen, bathroom, etc. immediately. Find out right away where they get their granite, cabinets, lighting, etc. and what their standard options are. Visit the stores/suppliers immediately too and figure out if you want what they offer or if you want to pay to upgrade. Builders will say they give you a lot of time, but to them that could mean 5 days to decide and these are big decisions.
