We are two vintage-loving friends who back in 2012 decided to take a break from our corporate lives to start an event which we would enjoy selling at. Ruby’s was named after Lyn’s 1938 Vauxhall 14/6 car and she will sometimes park outside the venue to advertise the event and add to the atmosphere for everyone. We currently organise fairs in Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Hampshire & Buckinghamshire. Our stallholders sell a wide variety of vintage and retro items including clothes, homeware, jewellery and furniture.
