The distinctive SMP number plates on our vehicles are a familiar sight most weekends at events around the UK and occasionally on mainland Europe. From local meetings to major fairs we will always come if the date is free.
Don't forget we are only able to come if you invite us.
We always attend in person.
You can meet us at the National and all major Regional Fairs.
However, we cannot have the entire stock with us and if you have a particular requirement just give us a phone call and the goods will be reserved for you to look at without any obligation to buy. We will also store your purchases until you are ready to leave.

Each September the Lace fair at Bonheiden
is organised by the
local lacemaking group Ordinaaltje.
Many traders attend with stalls both in and outdoors.
You arrive early because admission is free
and it is very busy.
