Another weekend, another fair. I wish I could have had time to snap more than our stall but we were inundated from start to finish.
This was the women's rail shortly before being decimated by bargain-hungry buyers. I spent most of the day crawling around on the floor picking everything back up. Anyone who thinks vintage fairs are full of tea sipping, cake-eating ladies in reproduction dresses have never been to one of our events, it makes some jumble sales seem civilised.
Handily located next to the tea stand our menswear rail had one of the best days ever.
|Merino wool jumper (Salvation Army, £1.20), 1950s wool trousers (Cancer UK, £1), Oxblood brogues (jumble sale in 2011, 40p), Tootal scarf (one of many from a 30-odd year collection), Flat cap (had since before we met)|
Saturday was the first time in a week I'd woken and actually felt human so after a much-needed workout I headed off to a jumble sale (we don't want those rumours restarting) and was back in time for the postman to hand me a parcel of joy from goddess, Desiree, sending me some much needed Aussie sunshine.
|Pretty 1970s Spring midi dress, Beautiful Sassy Vamps headpiece ready for Glastonbury, the most delicious smelling hand-made soap ever, a sexy minx vintage postcard and some fabulous feathery earrings - I LOVE it all!|
Most of our jumble finds are still drying - blasted Arctic weather - but Stephen Squirrel took an instant fancy to this 1970s mustard wool shawl by Jaeger and claimed it for himself before I had time to chuck it in the wash.
Just in case I get accused of favouritism here's Polly Piglet on the blanket my Mum crocheted in 1966.
and Jacob - almost out of hibernation - eating from an Edwardian baby bowl.
I'm not the only one living and breathing vintage in this house!
|1960s chiffon jumpsuit (Etsy, under £10, back in 2011), Barry M Spring green nails, heaps of bastard jewellery and a massive bindi.|
Watch this space, I'll be back with my jumble finds and vintage finds shortly.
In the meantime I'm linking with Patti and the gang over at Visible Monday.
See you soon!
