Hi, I’m Jill and I run Alfie Robot Retro, a vintage company based in Burley-in-Wharfedale near Ilkley, West Yorkshire. I run my own vintage fairs in Ilkley and Burley, sell at other fairs across the north, through Instagram and Facebook, and at Space in Harrogate.
My stock comprises everything from vintage homeware to classic toys. I also sell furniture, Pyrex, Tupperware and much more. I love seeking out new items, which I then clean up and fix before taking them to fairs or placing them online. It’s the best job ever, and fits around looking after my two small children.
Ilkley Playhouse Vintage Fair
I run the Ilkley Playhouse Vintage Fair twice a year. It is usually on Easter Saturday (although not in 2019) and the last Saturday of October, but check the Events page for exact details of the next fair. Find out more about this friendly fair in a gorgeous West Yorkshire spa town on the Ilkley Playhouse Vintage Fair page.
Wetherby Vintage Fair
Wetherby Vintage Fair is my new fair, held at the brilliant Engine Shed in the town. The first fair at this new venue takes place on Saturday 11th May and you can find out more at the Wetherby Vintage Fair page.
Burley-in-Wharfedale Vintage Fair
The Burley fair is always a lovely occasion. It generally takes place on the first Sunday of Burley Summer Festival in August. The village is always buzzing on the day, as there is also a classic car show, food festival, craft market, donkey rides in the park and more going on.
