Pop Ups & Events
So events and shows are back up and running after an almost 18 month break and we are chuffed that we've got a couple of amazing events lined up for this Autumn and Winter (and others may be added!)
We’re looking forward to taking part in this legendary event! If you are going – please do come and say hi – we’re ‘Over the Road’ on stand 235. We’ll be there from Thursday at 4pm and open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 7.30am-10pm. If you want a decent conversation though, perhaps come after 8am once the coffee has kicked in. We’ll be bringing a stack of our different products – for makers, menders and growers. There will be plenty for motor racing and car enthusiasts to buy from toolboxes and petrol cans to Carhartt and Tinker and Fix overalls. And, especially for the show, we’ll be expanding the range of King Dick tools that we offer. As well as selling Imperial and Metric spanners and sockets, we will be also have an extensive range of Whitworth for pre-war vehicles. We will also be taking along various items from their brilliant heritage range – including their filled tool rolls which are period correct and great for replacing lost ones from show cars.
The Burghley Christmas Fair - November 25th to 28th, 2021
The Burghley Christmas Fair is a great event - it's traditional and spectacular. And it's close to home being just on the outskirts of Stamford. We've even got our own chalet - so you can come and do your Tinker and Fix shopping in style (and out of the weather if it's inclement)!
Our semi-permanent home is a 'pop up' at Market Harborough EcoVillage. The Eco Village is a collective of businesses driven by the two Beth's, who wanted to look at retail in a different way. The Eco Village is a new venue featuring carefully selected small local businesses, each with an individual focus on sustainability. They are working to establish an alternative to the supermarket: a place where you can enjoy your weekly shop with the reassurance of knowing that the goods on offer will be as low impact as possible. You can stock up on your zero waste supplies from Refill Revolution or some of the other amazing local suppliers, you can buy some great stationery or gifts, or some amazing plants from the lovely Susie at WindowSill Plants. Or you can just sit down for coffee & cake - the food on offer is delicious (and you can even buy 'take-aways'!)
