Just a normal Saturday!! ;-)


Another fine day was had by all, at the Vintage and Handmade Fair, yesterday!
And you can guess whose camera batteries ran out as I had snapped so much the day before , on our journey up to Gloucestershire!!
More about that soon!



Neverthless , here are a few snippets!





It was wonderful to meet so many bloggers who had made the journey as 'customers'.
Clare (of Summer Fete blog fame) with her lovely hubby.
Lisa (Lissy Lou blog) and her lovely other half.
Julia (Midsummer Stitches blog) and her lovely mum and daughter!
Victoria and Kelly...all the way from Essex...I think we all know these two wonderful, bloggy, Essex gals!
Joe (Josie Mary blog ) and her friends from Exeter.
And many more!
A huge huge thanks to Jayne, Michele and the 'tea ladies and gents' for their massive efforts!
Events like this don't just happen!
So thank you so much!
Huh, the week is going to be a little mundane now that that's over and done with!
Or is it?!!!!

Oh how I wish I'd been there - it looks so wonderful. I think I would have spent a little too much on all those treasures though!!

Cowboys and Custard said...

Thank you for the great photo Sal.. lovely to see a good photo of my stall rather than the blurry results I managed!
Lovely to have you and Mr Snippets as neighbours again.. and Mr Custard got on famously.. just hope he didn't disgrace himself!!!
Thank you for all your support and great input at the fair.. and for keeping me fed and watered all day!
Love

As far as I can tell, you're the first to put your photos up! :)
So a big thankyou from those of us who can't make it to the fair :0)It's lovely to be able to see it 'second hand' on your blog..The wonders of technology eh?..
That makes me sound old doesn't it! LOL..
Enjoy your bank holiday..

Hi Sal, Great pics. ... mine didn't all work out. Your table llooked great as usual, especially that May day fabric you'd used to make the little pencil cases. A special thank you to Mr Snippets for encouraging Mr Fixit to embark upon a career as a co-stall holder!

It was a lovely day Sal, while worth the journey, this year I got back early! It was lovely to see everyone again & meeting new friends...chatting saved me spending!
Thanks for the lovely picture of Michele's table, none of mine came out :(

Hi Sal!

It was a lovely fair and good to meet you! I adore the fabric which I bought from you.
If I have a criticism, I did think that one or two of the stalls were like Victorian museum displays though, and the prices a tad high!!
Just an observation!
Having said that, it was such a well organised fair.I live in the area and I try to get to as many vintage/antique events as I can and this one was by far and away the most enjoyable to date.
Well done to the organisers.

I would have loved to be able to have gone to this fair. It is getting harder and harder now to find good vintage stuff but this fair seems to have everyting I could wish for.
