Looking for some DIY things to do in London this weekend? I'm hoping to pop down to Bethnal Green to check out Valentine's Love-A-Fayre (wish me luck, last visit left us lost and angry). With over 30 designers, makers and vintage dealers, it promises a room crammed full of twee treats, naughty nonsense and unique goodies that are all vintage, handmade or handpicked.
Date: Saturday, February 5th and Sunday, February 6th, 2011
Time: Noon to 6:00 p.m.
Location: 44 Pollard Street, Poplar, Greater London E2 6 (nearest tube: Bethnal Green)
