Ephemera Society Special Fair


Crikey, December already eh?

That means it's time for another of the Ephemera Society's Special Fairs - taking place this Sunday, 6 December, from 11am to 5pm at the Holiday Inn on Coram St, WC1N 1HT (here's the Google map). The special fairs are the larger versions of the more frequent Bazaars, and are a great chance to pick up really unique Christmas presents for the design geek in your life.

At the last event we picked up a stack of rather fantastic 1930s invoices for Manchester firm Butterly & Wood - check them out on Alistair's Flickr set.
