Fun At The Fair

Yesterday was the big day, a good time was had by all although I think we are all feeling pretty tired today. Lots of lovely sellers and fellow bloggers came from far and wide and it was great catching up with everyone. Unfortunately the weather wasn't kind to us and we didn't have quite as many customers as last time but those who came said they really enjoyed it. In all the excitement I forgot to take my camera with me so you will have to excuse the quality of the pictures taken quite late in the day on Mr C's phone. Lots didn't come out at all so you will have to check out pictures of the other lovely stalls on other blogs as they appear.

The pretty rose tapestry picture and crocheted flower corsage were from the lovely Karen of Tilly Rose and were some of my few purchases. I was very restrained partly because I was too busy to get a proper look round.

This sweet Easter nest brooch and lovely scented soap were a present from the very kind Sandie of Sandie's Patch who made the trip from Leicester with her sister to pay us a visit.

I also treated myself to this gorgeous blue rose tin and little notebook from Tracey of The Vintage Bothy. Zoe of Penny Blossoms also popped in and brought me a lovely bunch of daffs as a late birthday surprise. It's amazing how friendly and thoughtful some of our fellow bloggers are, even though often we have never met before it seems we already know each other.

This was Lindsey of Elsie Sparrow's gorgeous bike with her lovely handmade children's goodies.

This stall belonged to Kris selling 20th century home wares and vintage clothes.

Sharon of Clover Cottage was doing her first ever stall and she was a great success, her fabric covered note books and her embroidered pictures were very popular.

These blurry pictures are of my stall but give you the idea.

We think we will probably do another fair later in the year around early November time when people are starting to think about their Christmas shopping again, but we will keep you posted. Anyway thank you so much to all our wonderful customers and the lovely group of friendly people who all turned up to sell such gorgeous things and who made the day such fun.
