I have had a busy few weeks finalising plans for the Northampton Vintage Fairs. We have decided to go for it and have booked four dates for the year with another yet to be finalised for the Summer. Mr C is doing a lot of the work for me this time and we have set up a new blog northamptonvintagefair.blogspot.com to keep everyone up to date with developments.We are already fully booked for the first one of the year, and it's great to know that all things vintage are as popular as ever.
The Keep Calm And Carry On sign is rather apt at the moment in the corner house but I am sure things will calm down soon. Mr C bought me this metal sign from Sue and Chris who sadly have had to close their little shop Rags and Roses Vintage. It is destined for my kitchen wall once it has been decorated. They are still selling online though and will be selling at our March fair for the first time. We also bought the lovely E .S Byatt picture from them.
Mr C finally got round to painting the dark pine cupboard in the hall that houses all my vintage children's books. It looks loads better with it's white and green distressed paint job.
This old Minton jar was a recent find, I love the images on the sides and lid.
Yesterday was the Northampton Bicycle Basket Bazaar and after a change to my original plans I decided to brave the cold and pop in to catch up with a few fellow bloggers. Sure enough I managed to catch up with Annie (The Felt Fairy) and her lovely daughter Amy from Blighty Boutique and also Linda from Tabbyroo. All of them will be selling at the March Fair so it was good to catch up.
