VINTAGE vultures, retro rooters and clever shoppers looking for something contemporary and handcrafted all  have a festive treat in store at an indoor market taking place in Blackpool town centre on Saturday, December 18, and the Happy House will be cashing in on the action!
Staged by RetroSpective,  the daytime event  Contradiction - Contemporary and Traditional  at St John's Church , Cedar Square, Blackpool,  from 11am-4pm, is  a spin-off from the highly successful series Indie market, unique gift and local artist fair evenings  which are becoming a regular attraction at local bar Scrooges.
It  will feature all sorts of everything from new to old including indie designers, hand-crafted goods, shabby chic, recycled, vintage, retro, collectibles,  fashion, jewellery, toy and games, local artist and craftspeople and cupcakes! The fair organisers have asked Children of Watamu to be their charity partner and all the donations collected on the door will be given to the Happy House project . They are also giving us a free stall where we can sell bits and bobs, including our Happy House Happiness Kits made by Kathryn Pidcock and friends and Christmas gift certificates, plus  dishing out promotional material. It's a welcome chance to get our message to a new audience.
Co-organiser Gary Palmer said: "We were looking for a charity to support and were incredibly impressed by the work being done by  Sue  Hayward and  the charity in Kenya."
