From jam to jewellery, a selection of vintage crafts and curios are up for grabs at Valentines Mansion this weekend.

Vintage traders are setting up shop in the mansion’s Grade 11* listed grounds, in Emerson Road, on Sunday, April 29.

Among the wares are reupholstered furniture, handmade crafts, home decor, chutneys, accessories and collectables.

A Valentines Mansion spokeswoman said: “The fair is a retro shoppers dream and offers something for every vintage taste at affordable prices.”

After bagging bargains, shoppers can grab themselves lunch or cream tea at the Gardener’s Cottage Cafe in the mansion’s grounds.

The mansion is more than 300 years old and features a recreated Victorian Kitchen, Georgian rooms and a garden and aviary in the cafe.

The fair runs from 10am to 4pm and is free to enter.
