Today was BBB in Northampton's old fishmarket hall. Deb and I had a bike between us. Unfortunately as we were a little late we ended up next to the outside door so we were pretty cold ! The atmosphere was great as usual and the fish market was bustling with Christmas shoppers.
It's always lovely to catch up with fellow basketeers including Lindsey from 'Elsie Sparrow'. I bought one of her cute Christmas stockings complete with striped candy cane. Also a little mirror made using a page from a comic that brought back memories of my teenage years.
Linda and Jake were there, they had a stall ' Love Thyself ,' at our vintage fair a few weeks ago. I couldn't resist one of Linda's Cinderella tags. I loved this Ladybird book when I was a child. Linda and I both agreed that her blue dress was our favourite, although I think I used to change my mind about my favourite Cinderella dress on a regular basis.
I treated myself to this lovely Father Christmas match box holder, I spotted it amongst Deb's treasures before she had even unpacked ! It's now on my kitchen dresser and it prompted me to fish out my old Father Christmas Bird's Custard jug.
Next Saturday we are going to be at the Bentley Priory Winter Fair. Bentley Priory is the historic home of the Battle of Britain museum so should have a wonderful atmosphere.
