My Mum and I had a fabulous time at yesterday's vintage fair catching up with other bloggers and stallholders and meeting lots of new people, including a very sleepy pug/spaniel cross called Jet. Jo of Hesta and the Pugs
gave him a big cuddle and I thought she might bundle him into one of her beautiful vintage eiderdowns and take him home.
|These beautiful boys had to come home with me. One bought from Ann of Vintage at the Cornerhouse and the other from Vicki of Ticklepenny Vintage|
It was lovely to see some familiar faces; Gill The Vintage Gardener
and Mr VG, Linda of TabbyRoo
, Vicky of Vicky Loves Vintage
, Lindsay of Elsie Sparrow
, Carol of Saracarolmakes, Debbie of Vintage Wants
(who usually co-organises the fair with Ann of Vintage at the Cornerhouse
) and Wend of Ticking Stripes
. I also met stallholder Phillipa of Court and Spark
and the lovely Sue of The Krafty Cupcake
who came along with some fabulous cakes for my mum. Sorry if I've missed anybody out!
|I love this jewel like button hairclip from Vicky Loves Vintage & the cute red earrings from Elsie Sparrow|
Sharon of Clover Cottage
, who usually has a stall at the fair, came along as a buyer and designated photographer. I hope she doesn't mind but I've pinched a photo of my stall from her blog. I always forget to take pics as the minute everyone starts setting out their beautiful wares I'm off and wandering.
|My stall. Ann snapped up the vintage Marks & Spencer's child's till|
My Mum and I sampled the delicious tea and cakes and my Nan and Grandad travelled from Worcestershire to come to the fair. My Mum and Nan left with lots of purchases and I managed to be sensible in only buying a few bits and pieces. I had my eye on Wend's pink art deco tea pot but restrained myself from buying it and it was snapped up early on by another admirer of candy coloured utility china.
|Delicious looking knitted liqourice from the lovely Carol of Saracarol Makes. Carol was really kind and gave me the beautiful hand felted brooch as a gift.|
Jo of Hesta & the Pugs and my Mum found they both had a love of 'lowering the tone' and had a fine old time cracking wicked jokes at every opportunity. Jo very kindly gave me a vintage Union Jack flag after me saying how much I wanted one for my stall to tie in with the Blighty theme. She has an enviably collection of them and the one she gave to me will be taking pride of place on my stall at the next fair.
Time flies when you're having fun, as they say, and I was a suprised when it was suddenly time to pack up.

and Trevor did a fantastic job of organising the fair, with beautiful bunting both inside and outside the venue, and I'm really looking forward to the next fair in May!
Hope you've all had a lovely weekend xxx

Just popped by to say glad your parcel arrived OK.
The fair looks as though it was fab. I'm hoping I might make the next one, (to buy, not sell), that is providing new grandson who is due about the same time does not make an early appearance.
