Entry is £1 (free for under 16s) and we will be having our usual vintage inpired tea room, with a selection of delicious cakes being served on our vintage china. We'll again be donating a minimum of 10% of our tea room takings to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Military Patients Fund, having already donated £350 to the charity this year.

The New Blighty Boutique Vintage Fair Flyer!

Hi everyone, thought you might like to see the new flyer for our Blighty Boutique Vintage & Handmade Fair Jubilee Special! It gave me a chance to showcase some of my ever growing vintage Royal ware collection.

We can't wait to don our red, white and blue and will have Union Jack flags and Jubilee themed paper crafts for our young visitors to the fair.
My Stall at the Sutton Fair
I haven't had chance to blog since the Sutton Vintage & Arts Fair, but Mum and I had a fantastic day! I came home with hardly anything and have been busy buying more stock for up coming fairs that I'll be selling at. Thanks Sabina and Eva for holding another fantastically organised and thoroughly enjoyable fair!

Jubilee Excitement!

I know the Jubilee weekend isn't until the 2nd June but I am already super excited! I love the Royals and all things Royal and have a growing collection of Royal Memorabilia; mostly cups, beakers and tins.
National Portrait Gallery
Like most collectors my collection has outgrown its cabinet after only a few months of having built the cabinet and I'm now considering having my spare room as a 'Royal' room so that I have even more space to keep collecting!

Part of my growing collection
Being a lover of the Royals, and of course of parties and dressing up, we've sheduled one of this year's Vintage & Handmade Fairs for the Jubilee weekend Come along to Hatton Park Village Hall on Sunday June 3rd betwwen 11am - 4pm and drink tea, eat cake, peruse our seller's lovely wears and check us out in our red, white and blue ensembles! There will also be children's jubilee crafts taking place outside...fancy sticking some sparkles on a golden crown or building a Queen's guard out of paper? I'll be the one sat colouring in a Union Jack....

We've only had a hint of spring and....

.... I'm lusting after a convertible. My absolute favourite is the convertible Morris Minor.

Shame I have no skills for tinkering with old cars and can only drive automatics eh! Oh well, I can still gaze at them in wonder.

27 Tomorrow!

I'm amazed to say that I'll be 27 tomorrow, I'm sure I was only 22 a year ago. I had a lovely family pre-birthday meal on Tuesday and my Nan & Grandad bought me these.

These are also brightening up the living room. A liitle burst of sunshine, a bargainous 50p a bunch from M&S.

Blighty Boutique Vintage & Handmade Fairs latest flyer!

Hi everyone, the Blighty Boutique Vintage & Handmade Fair's new flyer for the March 4th Fair. I will of course be creating a button for you lovely people to share with others on your blog. Excuse the shameless plugs on the blog, but the fair's are such a big part of my life that it seemed only right that they were featured on both the Fair's own blog and my personal blog.

The button will be up just as soon as I've mastered the technology of it all! I struggle every time and think, 'aha, that was all I had to do. I'll remember that for next time...'. I swear by Serendipity Child's Grab My Button tutorial. I've just searched back in Helen's blog to find it and have tucked the post away in my 'favourites'. I use it every time I need to make a blogger button!

The back of the flyer

On the Fair's own blog page I will be setting up and event page too.I'll be setting this up in a week or so and you'll be able to find it using the Facebook Event icon in fair's blog sidebar, which will be active once the event page is set up. You can already follow Blighty Boutique using the Facebook icon in the fair's blog sidebar!

Thank you for the lovely comments on my last post and sorry that I haven't responded to them yet! I'm hoping to get back to blogging properly again soon...well I have bought myself a new camera (it's my birthday tomorrow) so it'd be rude not to use if for blogging purposes wouldn't it!

We Love Dogs!

A selection of vintage dogs sat on my living room dresser

It'll soon be time to distribute our flyers for the March 4th fair, and the essential ingredient in our flyer picture? A dog! Those of you who know my Mum and I will know that we're massive dog lovers and have four between us.

Our first flyer 2011, featuring a little grey vintage dog

We pick something with a vintage doggy theme for each flyer, whether it be an image of a dog on a tin or postcard, or a figurine, there has to be a four legged friend within each flyer image!
