Three in a row!


 Busy times! Back to Back Fairs.....


 ...and a lot more in store....

..
I will be bringing an eclectic mix of Vintage costume, accessories, Textiles and other (vaguely) related bits and bobs to the Fairs in Frome, Cheltenham and Ardingly.


The "girls" are modelling a few of the gorgeous hats I have recently acquired. These I will be bringing to The Vintage Bazaar at The Cheese and Grain in Frome on Saturday October 29th.


Then next to in Cheltenham on Sunday the 30th of October ( Blind Lemon Vintage fair). Always a superb event with lots of delicious Vintage goodies to choose from.


Lastly,  Mildred is sporting a funky vintage hat. Probably dating from the 1960's. The label reads "Panda", made in England by Fenwick of Bond Street.


Followers of this blog will have noted that this posting has been changed. Sadly the event in Hungerford this coming Saturday has been cancelled.

The Textile Society Fair in Chelsea


 This weekend was certainly a busy one.... we "kicked off" at the Vintage & Handmade Fair on Saturday, see pics here and more witty words...
Sadly my photos are really not up to scratch of the amazing event organised by the gals, Jayne and Michele.


 Sunday morning it was time to drive to London for the Textile Society Fair in Chelsea Old Town Hall. Many of the ladies on the Vintage Circuit know this venue well as they attend the Frock Me Fair on a regular basis.
I have never been to that event, so was totally blown away by the stunning interior of the hall. As you can see from the pix above, the light streamed into the building.



Despite the heat the day flew by as I met some new customers and a few familiar ones too! The lovely Jane on the next stand was very complimentary about this blog, so just wanted to say Thank you to her for her kind words!
 I only have a few images of my stand, and somehow I didn't get around to photograph any other stalls.



 .... apart from smiling Cecile looking radiant whilst the rest of us were wilting! Keep an eye open for the dates for next year. It is a superb event!
