ABOUT

Cornish Country Cordials

Duchy Fairs became the working name for the fair & markets side of Duchy Vintage at the end of 2016. Duchy Vintage was set up in Cornwall, UK in 2011 as a private vintage events company.

 

We met so many talented curators and makers along the way that in 2013 we hosted our first vintage fair, this side of the business has grown and we now curate and create an array of wonderful public fairs across Cornwall, and now online, every year. Each fair has a distinct concept (from vintage to craft) and atmosphere (from cosy to cool) while staying true to our central belief in the value of buying independent.

 

In 2015 we opened up our vintage emporium selling a range of the best in vintage. A bricks and mortar shop for two years it's now an online boutique selling across the UK and beyond, visit Duchy Vintage here

  • Hey! I'm Sarah, half of the Duchy Fairs team. After a career in London working on tv, online and event sponsorship & promotion campaigns I moved to Cornwall to start a new challenge and a new way of life! Having dealt with big budget clients it's been amazing to work with small businesses and indie traders who are genuinely dedicated to what they do. I share their passion and love that Duchy Fairs can support them!

  • Hello, I'm Emma, the other half of Duchy Fairs. I was born and bred in Cornwall and after studying and working as a teacher across at home and abroad Europe I returned to Cornwall, the place I love. I've always been passionate about artisan makes, handcrafted pieces and vintage treasures and love that my role at Duchy Fairs gives me the chance to work with so many wonderful makers and talented curators.
