On Sunday we were up early and packed the car to go to The Winslow Handmade and Vintage Fair. After a very wet night we weren't sure what the weather had in store for us, but apart from some strong gusts of wind the rain stayed away.The fair was held on the pretty market square and had a lovely vibrant atmosphere. Hayley from Vintage Scoops in her vintage ice cream van did a roaring trade. The Sasparillas entertained us with some great 1940s tunes.
All of the lovely little shops around the market square were open for business. This one seemed particularly popular with young and old alike.
Mr C and I had a lovely day and met lots of nice people. It was great to catch up with Sharon from Clover Cottage who was having a day out as well as Lindsey from Elsie Sparrow who was selling two stalls along from us. There were yummy cup cakes on offer as well as some very nice alcoholic ginger beer that went down a treat in the sunshine.
Lisa from Polka Dot Gallery along with her friends did a great job of organising a really enjoyable event.
I am guessing it may date to the 1930s and is made from beautiful pastel coloured rayon type fabric.
It is in amazing condition and must have taken hours to make. Sadly I really can't keep it as I have an ever growing collection of eiderdowns and bedspreads so I think it will be destined for our little area at Brackley Antiques Cellar.
