As you may have already seen on Debbie's blog 'Home Thoughts From Vintage Wants' The Northampton Vintage and Home Made Fair is taking place on Sat 20th March at St Matthews Church Rooms. Last time was a great success and lots of people have been asking about the next one. We provisionally booked the rooms way back in November. Since then a lot has happened including Deb's big house move. Over the last few weeks things have been pretty stressful here too with Mr Cornerhouse having three emergency admissions to hospital. Nothing too serious thankfully but exhausting and difficult for all concerned. My lovely girl has had GCSE exams and A Level choices to make , so all in all my blog and fair preparations have taken a back seat. Deb has thankfully taken control of the situation and has sorted out the flyers and printing. The photo took us a while. We had prepared the photo before Christmas using shelves again like last time but then changed our minds and decided we should try something different, hence the basket to fit with the Easter theme. Hopefully I can now try and catch up with all your lovely blogs and start some serious planning for the fair. If you are interested in having a stall please contact myself or Deb and we will send you a booking form. The stall holders from last time will be given the chance to book a stall first and then we will offer any stalls left to newcomers.
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.
