This weekend has been full of vintage treasures and being surrounded by vintage loveliness . On Saturday we went to Stamford to the Discover Vintage Fair. It was lovely to catch up with Jo from HestaNesta and give her some flyers for the Northampton Vintage Fair in Oct. Jo's stall looked beautiful as usual but I forgot to take photos ! I am sure she will cover it on her blog so you will get a peek. Luckily for us Jo is joining us at the Northampton fair. I also met Vicki from Ticklepenny Vintage, she is also a new seller to the Northampton Fair this time and her stall was very tempting. I didn't leave empty handed as you can imagine. I bought the two tea cosies from two different stalls and will take them to the Northampton Fair. The red rose 1950s one is gorgeous and in unused condition. The little pink alarm clock will also be coming with me to the fair because as much as I love it the tick is quite loud !
This Worcester Ware tin will be staying firmly with me. It's another addition to my expanding tin collection and I love the colour and the flowers on the lid.
As usual I was tempted by some pretty linens including a rosy apron and what I think may be little hand towels.
The tray was a purchase from Vicki and I have displayed it at the back of my cupboard with my utility china.
Carol from 'Pure Country' has a booth at the Northampton Antiques Centre and is also a seller at the Nothampton Vintage fair. Today she had one of her open house sales and I popped along for a cup of tea and a browse around the mouth watering array of vintage treasures.
I came home with another picture for my ever growing collection going up the side of the stairs. I also found this wonderfully plump and snugly eiderdown.
Somehow I have also ended up with three aprons, the rosy one from Vicki and the others from Carol. I couldn't resist yet another doggy themed item !
Last night I finally made a start on sorting out all my things for the fair. I couldn't believe the amount of things I had squirreled away and forgotten about. Anyway at least I have made a start and completed quite a lot of the boring labeling and pricing. Back to work tomorrow and a very busy week.
