Last Saturday was the day of the 5th Northampton Vintage Fair and we had a lovely day. I have spent the last few days recovering and trying to put stock away. Of course I didn't come home empty handed. The four pretty glasses have already been put to good use, I found them on Lesley's stall. Lesley is also the lady who makes the famous lemon drizzle cake and runs the tea room. I always use vintage glasses at home because they are usually prettier and more delicate than modern ones and I just enjoy using them.
Mr C found us this lovely floral Vernon Ward to add to our collection. This came from Wend of Ticking Stripes.
Sorry about the camera flash on this one. The picture came from Vicki of Ticklepenny Vintage. Mr C has just re-painted the frame in a chalk white Annie Sloan paint.
As usual there were a wonderful array of stalls with many of our regular and popular sellers. Return visitors included Karen of Tilly Rose, Jo from Hesta Nesta, Sharon of Shabby Polka Dots, Debbie from Lalabibaby, Wend of Ticking Stripes, Amy from Blighty Boutique, Deb of Vintage Wants as well as other more local and new sellers.
You will find more on the Northampton Vintage Fair blog, as well as on other lovely blogs such as Karen's of Tilly Rose.
As well as being surrounded by vintage lovelies the best thing for me about the fair is the friendliness of sellers and customers alike. It is lovely to catch up and chat with people who have now become friends.
