CHRISTMAS was all sewn up at a festive vintage craft fair in Sheffield which pulled in over 500 people.

City Life carol singers and Lindy Hop dancers added some theatrics to the event - and even managed to get visitors to join them – at the Nicholls Building at Shalesmoor.

There were 40 stalls for shoppers to browse, selling everything from vintage clothing to chutneys and art to Christmas trees.

Hot roast chestnuts were also on sale.

Louise Anderson, who owns the antique, arts and craft centre, said: “It was absolutely fantastic, I think we saw about 500 people through the door.

“There was a really electric buzz around the centre and the courtyard.”

For the Nicholls Building, which opened this summer, Sunday was its first Christmas vintage craft fair.

Louise added: “The real star attraction was the Lindy Hop dancers, they were everyone’s favourite and kept pulling the audience up to dance.”

“The craft people did well as did the dealers upstairs and Red Bricks Cafe was swamped.”

Late night shopping is available at the centre every Thursday until 8pm during the countdown to Christmas.
