Isle of Wight to host pop-up fair

A pop-up fair is set to be created on the Isle of Wight as part of an island student's project.

The vintage fair will be put on by Rosie Drake-Knight, who is just about to start her final year at Falmouth Art College, Cornwall.

According to a report by the Isle of Wight County Press, the vintage-style fair and 'pop-up' shopping experience will form part of the student's dissertation.

"I have secured some of the best of the island's boutique shops, with designers and makers, home craft, haberdashery and a pop-up tea room," Ms Drake-Knight told the newspaper.

She added the idea of her project is to educate islanders and those on Isle of Wight holidays on the benefits of shopping locally and "the joys of make-do-and-mend".

Rosie Ribbons' Vintage Fayre will take place on Friday (August 24) at Bembridge Village Hall.

Also taking place on the Isle of Wight this weekend is Rhythmtree Festival, which was set to be held at Three Gates Farm in Calbourne earlier this summer but was postponed by bad weather.
