Northampton's Vintage Fair

Well what a day yesterday was ! After months of preparation the day finally arrived and then seemed to be over in a flash. There were a few sleepless nights wondering if anyone would come but in the end the hall was packed from start to finish. Everyone seemed to have a good time and there was a wonderful friendly atmosphere. It was lovely to meet up with fellow bloggers including Annie and her mum from Birdcages and Butterflies, Wendy from Ticking Stripes, Emma from Silver Pebble and Sharon from Clover cottage. Sharon took some great pictures which she has posted on her blog. We had lots of help from family and friends which was much appreciated and much needed ! Already people are asking
when we are going to do it again so we guess we will probably organise another one around Easter time. It was so busy I didn't get a chance to take many photos and the ones I took of the hall once everyone had set up have sadly turned out really dark so I can't use them. It was great that Sharon arrived with her camera and photographed so many of the lovely stalls.

Thank you to everyone that came to buy and sell. Thanks to all the lovely sellers for making such an effort to decorate their stalls so beautifully and thanks to everyone for so much support and encouragement. Debbie and I had a great day and really appreciate all the positive feedback we have received.

Ann, I had a great day and you and Deb deserve great credit for ensuring it went without a hitch. I just wish I'd arrived earlier to get time to browse and buy more! I'm thrilled with the purchases I made, the sales on the day but most of all the people I met who were so very friendly and lovely. It was great to put faces to names and be opart of such a grweat event. I llok forward to the next one. Please put my name down!
