Had a great time this afternoon hunting for treasures at the monthly Bicycle Basket Bazaar. Debbie and I often have a bike there ourselves to sell our own vintage and handmade goodies. It is well worth a visit with a wonderful array of decorated bicycles selling assorted vintage and handmade goods. It has a vibrant and friendly atmosphere and there is always something new to see. I bought a lovely altered art picture as a present for someone and found this wonderful vintage Triang pram and carry cot just like one I had when I was a little girl. I also found a lovely old brass desk calendar.
I live in the middle of England with my husband and teenage daughter and our naughty dog Josh a bearded, border collie cross and two chickens.I live in a corner house which is a 1920s semi near the centre of town. I love old houses and my last house was typically Victorian but I have grown to love the style of the 1920s and 1930s. My
passion for hunting out vintage treasures at flea markets and in charity shops means that I constantly add to my collection. I love vintage eiderdowns, textiles, tins, kitchenalia, ephemera and home wares from the 1930s through to the 1950s.
I work full time in a very demanding job so my hobby keeps me sane and allows me to relax and switch off from day to day pressures.
My husband runs the Northampton vintage fairs which gives me another excuse to indulge my passion for vintage.
I enjoy reading a number of blogs which I have listed. They have been a source of inspiration and pleasure to me and gave me the the confidence to start this blog.
