Weekend Finds

We had a lovely weekend starting with the our second Vintage Fair at Market Harborough. The atmosphere was great and the stall holders went to enormous effort to make their stalls look wonderful. On Sunday we were selling at another fair in Winslow and we also had to fit in a trip to Brackley Antique cellar to tidy up our unit. The box and magazines were found on the unit next to our own.

Of course I had to treat myself to a couple of purchases from the fair. First was this sweet tin which has no name on it so I am unsure what it originally held although I would guess sweets.

I bought three beautiful crystal chandelier droplets from Bryony to add to my collection I use to decorate my christmas tree each year.

I love this painted pebble that I bought from some wonderful new sellers, Gail and her sisters. I also found the little tin on their stall.

The 1950s tray was another purchase from Gail's stall.

The duck tin was another find at Brackley, I love the muted colours.

Mr C found this vintage German christmas tree holder at Brackley, there are still a couple left if you are looking for one.

All in all we had a really enjoyable weekend although it was nice to finally put my feet up on Sunday evening.

Love those tins and the painted stone. I have a number of stones with curled up cats painted on them by a lady in Cornwall - some people are very talented!

It was a great fair and lovely to meet Gail and her sisters - I'd been commenting on Jenny - of "The Custards" Flickr for the last few years. Great finds again!
