Saturday is fast approaching and last minute preparations are being made. Life is pretty hectic at the moment and finding time to even sort out stock to take to the fair has been tricky. However it is starting to come together with a little pile of sorted and priced stock forming on my landing. I am really looking forward to catching up with everyone again sellers and customers alike. Hopefully the rain will stay away although it's pretty miserable looking out of the window at the moment.
Mr C has been busy transforming this mannequin we found at the tip shop some months ago. He started by painting the base and top in Farrow and Ball paint.
He has then covered it in pieces of vintage adverts taken from 1940s copies of Punch magazine. I bought a job lot some time ago and they are full of great adverts. It has been a long and painstaking process but the end result is really good. I am trying to convince him that as he has made such a good job of this one he should make a start on the female mannequin we bought at the same time. This chap will be coming with us to the fair on Saturday.
Mr C found me a pile of blue utility ware this week. I found a box full of green Beryl Woods Ware in a charity shop a few weeks ago too. This is just some of it as there is still more of the green in the dishwasher as I am writing this.
Anyway if you are not too far from Northampton , please pop along to the fair on saturday, we would love to see you.
