A Busy Week

Last week was certainly busy and started on Monday with us moving in to our new and larger unit at Brackley Antique Cellar. Mr C and I have taken on unit 60 and we spent the day setting it up. Deb has kept unit 95 which previously we both shared. There were some pleasant distractions however called Bunty and Ruby. These two gorgeous girls belong to the lovely Debbie who owns the Antique Cellar. They are such characters and real cuties.

At the end of the day we had managed to fill the unit up with lots of pretty and colourful vintage goodies.

It certainly looked well stocked even though some of the items were sold as quickly as we unpacked them.

There seemed to be a colour theme of pastel pinks,blues, greens and yellows.

After a busy Monday and the rest of the week at work we then had our first Vintage Fair in Market Harborough.The Three Swans Hotel was a lovely venue with friendly and helpful staff.

As usual there was a lovely array of vintage and hand made treasures on offer.

We had regular visitors to the fair make the journey from Northampton as well as new customers from Market Harborough. We had some lovely people travel to the fair from quite a distance , some by train and bus as well as by car.

Some very special visitors also arrived, the lovely Susy and her husband on holiday in the UK from Italy. Many of you will know Susy from her blog Susy Cottage.

We also welcomed some great new vintage sellers who really added to the variety on offer. We are already preparing for our next Vintage Fair in Northampton on Sept 17th. There will be more photos of the fair on the Fair Blog.

I was very restrained in my purchases but did find this sweet little pair of soft white leather doll or baby shoes. I knew they would be just right to fill a space in my newest little cupboard.

I also couldn't resist another little dog to add to my collection.

I found another rosy tin to add to the little collection on top of my dresser.

The next couple of weeks should be a little more relaxed so fingers crossed for some sunshine and the chance to get to a couple of boot sales again.

I love those dogs, the real ones and those in the baset too! We had a wonderful time at the fair, what an amazing venue!

It was lovely to see you and Mr CH on Saturday.
Wasn't it a brilliant place for the Fair. Well done on securing that venue! Mind you, the cakes were good, but your 'tearoom' at Kingsley will take some beating!
It was surprise meeting MR CH at Days the other day! It's brilliant there and the stock changes almost daily.
Catch up again soon, I hope!

Your new unit looks jam-packed with lovelies - wish I were closer to go have a nosey! Sounds like the Fair was a great success with visitors from far and wide. After all that, I should think a bit of a feet up time is well deserved!
