Coffee & Tea – 29th July

29th July 2017
Posted by Tyler

Happy Saturday!

Tyler back with you for another 3 hours today – and as per usual – they flew by! No Producer Jack this week as he was moving house up in Rugby. So what happened this week?

I spoke with Trevor from Hallmark Fairs:

You may or may not know this – but there’s a huge antiques fair going on in Southend tomorrow. Hallmark Fairs have been around for decades; and they’re coming back to The Cliffs Pavilion this Sunday in one of their regular events.

Today on the show, I had the pleasure of speaking with Trevor from Hallmark Fairs / Chalkwell Auctions about the event. You can see the promo poster below:

Hallmark Fairs - Cliffs Pavilion Event - 30th July

From what I spoke about with Trevor – it’s actually not what you might expect. With an increasingly younger crowd – it’s an event for all of the family. With a variety of stalls from all over the country – there will be something to suit all tastes.

So, if you’ve got something in your house that you suspect may be of value – go down to The Cliffs and get Chalkwell Auctions to value it for you; and go grab yourself some INTERESTING decoration for your home.
