lost property finds - jubilee edition

Summer has arrived and I'm in such a good mood! It's amazing what a difference blue skies can make. This weekend is the Vintage Fair Jubilee Garden Party in Northampton - I'm all packed and ready to go!

I've even found a few jubilee-themed items for my stall. Amazingly, I've come across these all this week.

There are two coronation glasses (I love the blue) and an unusual biscuit tin. They'll both be joining me at the fair.

emerging from hibernation

Hello there! I've missed this space, and after a busy couple of months can finally check back in. There's been lots going on - most recently a couple of vintage fairs. I'm really enjoying the fairs - lots of lovely people and amazing vintage goodies. I managed to resist buying too much at first, but gave in this weekend!

Yesterday was the Olney fair in Buckinghamshire. I'd heard good things about this one, and it didn't disappoint. The beautiful old church hall was packed with stalls and customers.

My favourite item on my stall was this gorgeous vintage picnic set. It was bought as a wedding present, so I'm pleased it has gone to a good home. Just peaking into the left of the picture is a fab 1950s atomic coat rack, which I am tempted to keep!

Last weekend was the Oundle fair. It had been pouring with rain for a couple of weeks before, so I was a bit worried people wouldn't want to leave the house, but thankfully the skies were clear and the fair was busy all day.

I brought along a rail of clothing for the first time.

Next up is the Jubilee Garden Party at Northampton on 26th May, followed by the Stamford fair on 2nd June.
