Northampton Vintage Fair

Yesterday was a great day, beautiful weather, lovely people both sellers and customers and lots of gorgeous vintage goodies all topped off with delicious home made cakes and lots of tea. Before I go any further I need to apologise as I have only captured a flavour of all the wonderful stalls in these photos. However I know lots of fellow bloggers will be posting more photos over the next few days so between us we should have pictures of all of the stalls to share. There were lots of gorgeous stalls as usual with some really great new sellers too so sorry if I haven't managed to include you here.

I made use of my Lloyd Loom shelves for display and vintage coronation beakers on the tea tables.

This was Debbie's lovely stall, lots of interesting little vintage pieces and homemade gift boxes and tags.

Lindsey from Elsie Sparrow brought her bike along again.

Karen from Tilly Rose had the most beautiful stall in gorgeous spring colours with lots of floral hand made goodies.

Tracey came along for the first time with her hand made fabric and wooden hearts.

Jo from Hesta Nesta had an amazing array of lovelies as usual, this was just one small shelf.

Sarah Jane had an array of vintage goodies and delicious hand made cup cakes.

There was lots of wonderful fabric on many of the stalls, sorry I am not sure which stall this great collection came from.

I had a lovely day and was lucky enough to have time to catch up with lots of fellow bloggers including Debbie from Lalabibaby, Dreaming Of the Simple Life who was next to me. She had made the most beautiful patchwork bedspreads. She has posted some great photos on her blog as has Sharon from Clover Cottage who was our official photographer for the day. I am sorry I haven't included photos of every stall but Mr C disappeared with my camera at some point in the day. Thank you to everyone who came along yesterday and made it such fun. Hopefully we will see you all at the next fair on 21st May.
