Present From America




My friend Debbie returned from the States this week and bought me this lovely little 1930's booklet.
 I have also had some other goodies arrive in the post from the US, a lovely flapper style brush and pretty chocolate box.
Now Deb is back we have started to finalise plans for a vintage style fair  in Northampton. Having been to the wonderful Vintage and Handmade Fair in Chipping Sodbury we were inspired to try and do something locally in Northampton. We sometimes have a stall at the local collectables fair or a bike at the Bicycle Basket Bazaar in Northampton Fish Market. However we have often said how great it would be to do something with more of a focus on the sort of vintage items we both love ourselves and there is nothing locally. Today we confirmed a booking at my local church hall a few yards from my house. The fair will be the first Saturday in November. I guess this is where the hard work starts, advertising and finding the right sellers to be involved. 
The following Saturday we will be up at the crack of dawn on our trip to Chipping Sodbury to the V&H fair hopefully with lots of pennies from our fair to spend on ourselves.
I will post updates about the plans for our fair as things develop.

Best of luck with your fair Annie..
It is rather lovely to know that the V & H has inspired a number of similar fairs around the country...
Look forward to seeing you in November.
Long live Vintage!!!!
