oundle and market harborough fairs

The Oundle Vintage Fair was a lot of fun last week. My stall was overflowing as usual!

And there were lots of other goodies as well...

These Fox's Glacier Mints tins were hard to resist!

And I'll be at Market Harborough this Saturday...

lost property finds

I had some fun finds this weekend. I can never resist an interesting book, particularly those full of helpful advice. The AA Members Handbook from 1963 will keep your car running, whilst Girls Growing Up will keep your daughters on the straight and narrow! Meanwhile, Ward Lock's Wedding Etiquette will make sure you don't make a faux pas at social gatherings - and it has a fantastic pink and white strip cover.

I also came across this sweet little toy ironing board, made by Triang, and a lovely Woods Ware teapot.

The Cadbury's chocolate tins are also great fun. The tin on the left is in the shape of a stack of books, all Charles Dickens titles. And I've not come across the Roses tin before - the design hasn't changed a huge amount over the years, but the colourful flowers are really pretty.

Most of these will be on my stall at the Stamford Jubilee Vintage Fair tomorrow!

lost property finds - jubilee edition

Summer has arrived and I'm in such a good mood! It's amazing what a difference blue skies can make. This weekend is the Vintage Fair Jubilee Garden Party in Northampton - I'm all packed and ready to go!

I've even found a few jubilee-themed items for my stall. Amazingly, I've come across these all this week.

There are two coronation glasses (I love the blue) and an unusual biscuit tin. They'll both be joining me at the fair.

emerging from hibernation

Hello there! I've missed this space, and after a busy couple of months can finally check back in. There's been lots going on - most recently a couple of vintage fairs. I'm really enjoying the fairs - lots of lovely people and amazing vintage goodies. I managed to resist buying too much at first, but gave in this weekend!

Yesterday was the Olney fair in Buckinghamshire. I'd heard good things about this one, and it didn't disappoint. The beautiful old church hall was packed with stalls and customers.

My favourite item on my stall was this gorgeous vintage picnic set. It was bought as a wedding present, so I'm pleased it has gone to a good home. Just peaking into the left of the picture is a fab 1950s atomic coat rack, which I am tempted to keep!

Last weekend was the Oundle fair. It had been pouring with rain for a couple of weeks before, so I was a bit worried people wouldn't want to leave the house, but thankfully the skies were clear and the fair was busy all day.

I brought along a rail of clothing for the first time.

Next up is the Jubilee Garden Party at Northampton on 26th May, followed by the Stamford fair on 2nd June.
