Our inactivity here is no reflection of the importance we feel for Goat Hill Fair, our community, and you friends as a part of that community. We are still here. Remaining as connected as possible at our social media sites. With no new events occurring in this year, our blog and pages at this website don't look the usual way.

Normally at this time in the fall our blog would share the del...

Of late, our pages at Facebook and Instagram sometime share vintage, and other days those posts nearly read like a news report. The community where Goat Hill Fair is housed has been greatly affected by wildfires. Perhaps this comes as no surprise to our followers - you too may find yourself dealing with the fires. 

Our home base of Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds in Watsonville has co...

We regret typing out this post.. but we need all of our supporters to know that we've had to make the decision to cancel our fall - NOVEMBER 2020 vintage fair. As it was with our spring event, the same holds true today - the global pandemic is still forcing closures.

The Santa Cruz Fairgrounds and the state of California have many stipulations that need strict and careful attention in or...

This is the time reserved on our calendars for the most darn fun a vintage-loving fan could possibly ask for. The dates for this weekend in May are still marked  GOAT HILL FAIR 

(at least on our calendars). Yet, the fairgrounds stand very still.. their staff nonexistent and our spring event on pause - waiting for fall now. 

How can we not be disappointed? This is the time we greet you at...

As mentioned on our last post... we are not hosting our May event, instead we are hoping to bring attention to our vendors online. If you go to our Facebook and Instagram sites you will find out how to shop virtually.

We are posting our vendors who've had a moment to share their wares with us. Some vendors have been selling online themselves. Some have taken to ebay & Etsy for online sho...

What we WOULD be doing at this time, two weeks prior to our vintage fair .. is definitely not what we ARE doing this particular May.  Normally all of the loose ends would be getting tied up in a bow.. or at very least in a knot (for fixing later). In years past, you would have seen calendar dates, notices and posts every.darn.day as reminders to say 'WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU'....

Since making our cancellation announcement a little over a week ago, we've not checked in here. It's not that we haven't thought of you because, believe us ~ nearly every moment is filled with contemplation and concern over GOAT HILL FAIR; our vendors, volunteers, guests...

No better day than this to blog post and say hello. We have found that on this day, April 9th, there is an official...

For the good of all... 

May 16 & 17 must be scrapped for spring!  

Hi Friends! Our waiting for answers has come to an unfortunate reality ~ "The One Where They" ... Have to Cancel The Spring Gathering. We hoped, and prayed, and waited some more, but the world in crisis has not let up. We, in conjunction with state mandates, and the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds need to do what is best for...

Like many of you this past week has thrown us for a loop. There is much to be considered and many daily life changes to make. What does it look like in your home?  You might be racing to fill a pantry. There's a good possibility you have children home from school for a few days - possibly a couple of weeks. You might be one of millions doing the WFH (work from home) deal that your compa...

Next week we'll usher in spring - formally! In the last month all across Instagram-land many people, ourselves included, have been touting springlike feelings. Oh, the beautiful blossoms everywhere! 

On March 19th the true spring equinox occurs and we'll be sending happy thoughts to a lucky follower! During next week (beginning Monday 3/16) a giveaway will be offered at our sites. Go fol...
