This Saturday is the Christmas Vintage Fair At St Matthews in Northampton. Mr C has been very busy with all the preparations, delivering flyers and putting up posters. I really hope all his hard work pays off and people brave the chilly weather on Saturday to join all the lovely sellers. There will certainly be a warm welcome inside as well as Lesley's lovely tea and home made cakes and hopefully a little bit of extra entertainment to add a Christmassy feel.
The fair is supporting Alfe's Cause a local childrens charity, by donating raffle prizes for their own fundraising event on Sunday evening.
I live in the middle of England with my husband and teenage daughter and our naughty dog Josh a bearded, border collie cross and two chickens.I live in a corner house which is a 1920s semi near the centre of town. I love old houses and my last house was typically Victorian but I have grown to love the style of the 1920s and 1930s. My
passion for hunting out vintage treasures at flea markets and in charity shops means that I constantly add to my collection. I love vintage eiderdowns, textiles, tins, kitchenalia, ephemera and home wares from the 1930s through to the 1950s.
I work full time in a very demanding job so my hobby keeps me sane and allows me to relax and switch off from day to day pressures.
My husband runs the Northampton vintage fairs which gives me another excuse to indulge my passion for vintage.
I enjoy reading a number of blogs which I have listed. They have been a source of inspiration and pleasure to me and gave me the the confidence to start this blog.
