watching the tv while adorned in vintage
ok ok easily distracted now back to business
It must be 2 years since I went to any kind of fair, now that is shocking ~ considering it used to be my business ~ I used to do antique fairs all over the south of England including regularly attending vintage textile fairs in London. I do miss doing them.
Well last Saturday I felt the call to visit one, I set off to the Vintage and Handmade Fair
and it felt really good to be back in step again.I took my eldest, youngest and little'un to a sweet olde worlde place called Chipping Sodbury (what a name) . Situated between Bath and Bristol
It was the most beautiful hot gorgeous day and the drive up to this place was a breeze and FREE parking ... unheard of!!
Found some other great stalls too. Loved looking through some fine vintage laces and trims and fabrics, buttons, old shop stock (and I mean old, just perfect condition too) .
Isn't she sweet. Found her on Lizzie's stall. (aka Washerwomen ) Lizzie sells a large collection of vintage textiles and other related goodies and does a lot of fairs.
I will be using it for reference ~ I plan to create my own ribbon work
and so apt .... a pretty little ladybird ...... I do love them.
catch up soon Ginny xx
