February Bicycle Basket Bazaar

Yesterday was the monthly BBB in Northampton's old fishmarket. I met up with Deb over coffee and cupcakes in the Fishmarket Cafe to finalise plans for the Vintage Fair in March. Sharon (The Crafty Trundler) and her daughter joined us for a coffee which was lovely. We caught up with some of the sellers who will be at the fair in March including Lindsay (Elsie Sparrow), Kris, Lucy and Caroline who is a new seller this time. Of course I couldn't leave empty handed and came away with some of Lindsay's hand made lovelies to put away as presents , although the teacup candles are for me.

The fabric in the background is a large remnant of bark cloth I found for a £1 in the charity shop opposite the Fish market.

I also bought these beautiful embroidered pictures from Caroline who is a new seller who will be joining us at the fair. I need to find a frame for the boats picture so I can get it up on the wall in my bathroom. The colours are still wonderfully bright and the detail is amazing. The other garden picture will go in my newly painted hall along with my Sweet Peas picture.

This pretty, vintage knitting or sewing bag was another charity shop find this week.

And finally Mr Cornerhouse seems to be on a bit of a roll and has framed another one of my old prints. This is one that has been waiting to go up in the bathroom for ages. It cheers me up on wet and windy days like today and reminds me that hopefully we do have a summer to look forward to !
