One down - lots to go!

My first fair of the year under my belt and I had a lovely day.  It being February and given the recent weather conditions, no one was very sure how the day would turn out.   But the weather was good and lots of visitors came through the doors, many more than expected I think.
Trusty friend Jane and I managed to set up my stall in good time, but then as usual I was faffing about with it and ended up running around with my camera at the last minute.  Most of my pics came out blurred, so just a few here that were useable.

My stall had a very spring-like theme to it, not intentionally but I was pleased with the way it turned out.  I've really missed the buzz of the fairs and hope to do lots more this year. 

Thank you to everyone who admired and made purchases from my stall, it made for a perfect day.

I did snap a few pictures of the other stalls - this was part of Niki's display, which are always stunning.

Clearly everyone had worked very hard to produce some wonderful displays, all very tempting.

Thank you too to Jayne and Michele for organising another wonderful fair, looking forward to the next one already!

(love that jewellery display box in the bottom right corner!)

My next event will be the Vintage Jumble at Rangeworthy on 22nd March.  All events organised by Jayne and Michele can be found on the Vintage and Handmade website here.

Vintage and Handmade February Fling

This Saturday 22nd Feb, I will have a stall at the Vintage and Handmade February Fling Fair in Chipping Sodbury.  I have really missed doing the fairs over the last year, I did a few Vintage Jumbles but none of the main fairs.  Things are more settled at the shop, we have a work routine which leaves me time to engage in more vintage activity so I am hoping to get back on the 'fair circuit' this year.

It's a bit embarrassing that I haven't blogged for such a long time, I think the best thing is to gloss over that fact.   Below are a few of the things I will be taking on Saturday.  Hope to see you there!
