Once again the Vintage and Handmade fair was a fabulous event. It was all go from start almost to finish, though there was a small but welcome lull around lunchtime and towards the end of the day. Once again the quality of all the stalls was superb, and it was lovely to see some new stallholders.
As always, by the time I had finished setting up I had precious few minutes left for shopping, never mind taking photos. I did manage to snap a few but mostly they are blurred so I will have to direct you the Jayne's Flickr group where, if you haven't already, you can see lots of great pictures of the day.
A big thank you to everyone who visited my stall, for your lovely comments and your purchases. Much of the time there wasn't an opportunity for much chatting to customers, so I'm sorry that I didn't get a chance to say hello to fellow bloggers who visited.
I would like to say Hello to one reader I did meet - Susanna from Italy, who was over with her husband, and had been to visit my unit in Lechlade too, earlier in her trip. Language was a bit of a barrier but a kiss and hug speaks a thousand words! And another hello to Pooh, who was over from Thailand!
In the few odd moments I managed to run around the other stalls, I bought a few lovely bits for myself, of course. Pretty fabric scraps, ribbons, lace and beads for crafting.
I loved these sweet handpainted bath salts bottles, still in their original box - very kitsch.
And this lovely kitschy plastic box, I thought it was a rosary box, but looking at the picture it was probably intended for rings.
There were so many lovely things to choose from, many tempations, but I like to linger and consider over purchases and having my own stall is a major distraction to relaxed shopping.
After a good rest yesterday - I literally did nothing all day - comes the unenviable task of unpacking and restoring order in the house - wish me luck!
