BUCKINGHAMSHIRE SUMMER FAYRE

Boutique shopping for your home and your wardrobe

* * * Meet 80 amazing, small independent brands from all over the country * * *

Come and join us for a lovely afternoon or evening of inspired boutique homewares, gifts and accessories shopping and wonderful food & drink at the inaugural Humble Country Fayre, a much-anticipated event which will be hosted in the beautiful grounds of the Claydon Estate in Buckinghamshire.

Discover handpicked homewares brands, straight out of Instagram…

Amble amongst mini, open-sided white marquees in the picturesque walled gardens and browse handpicked, small independent brands selling a wide array of gorgeous, unexpected homewares from vibrant tableware including vases, glasses and eye-catching linen, to statement rugs, reclaimed wooden candlesticks, pretty throws and colourful cushions.

… Discover gifts & accessories, in a safe, summer setting

Relax with a great coffee and a delicious cake or pastry or a glass of chilled Prosecco in the June sunshine with friends or family – and enjoy the kick of uncovering the ideal gift or accessory: perhaps a handmade sterling silver bracelet, an eco-scented candle, or a fashion find with curb appeal, from comfy knits to cool-cotton kaftans.

There will be plenty of gift ideas too for Fathers’ Day on Sunday 20th – #perfecttiming

Free demonstrations and style inspiration

Throughout both the Friday and the Saturday, the Humble Country team & skilled guests will be running a number of free demos in our open air Demo Tent, sponsored by WILDFLOWER MAGAZINE, on topics including the art of sour dough bread making, the creation of scents by perfumery experts, how to arm knit, or willow weave – see programme for full info.

This is also the perfect chance to ask authentic homewares stylists, vintage hunters and lovers of rustic interiors for their own ideas and inspiration as you pick up that beautiful ‘not seen before piece’ for your home or garden.
