Bungalow dwellers often grapple with the best way to accommodate small spaces, odd corners and furnishing their homes with an eye toward the past.

Historic Seattle’s Bungalow Fair is designed to offer ideas and information on just those issues. The fair showcases antiques and work from artisans and craftspeople, and educates visitors on 20th-century architecture and design.

Lectures will be presented by experts such as Megan Thomas, the metalwork curator for London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, who will talk about the arts and crafts of Charles Robert Ashbee. John Burrows, a design historian, will speak about “Old Colony Style,” and Margaret Minnick will speak about “The Perfect Fit: Proper Furniture for the Proper House.”

For those interested in a hands-on approach, there are workshops on arts and crafts embroidery and stenciling on walls and fabric.

The fair runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 30 and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 1 in Town Hall at Eighth Avenue and Seneca Street in Seattle.

Admission is $10, and lectures cost an additional $10 each. Register at www.historicseattle.org, or call 206-622-6952.
