Nostalgic Mix...'Don't I look a twit?'..and a giveaway!! ;-)

And next we have Amanda, modelling the very latest in rainwear!

(This is where sales of this very trendy piece of women's head gear, rocket!


And this is the sort of thing which happened at

a little 'get together' in Totnes , yesterday.

You could call it a debrief/feedback/ or 'A bit of a do'...

having packed up our wares we ambled along to The Tangerine Tree,

for a buffet, drinks and a jolly good natter

....not to mention a few laughs!

Amanda , of course was raising her glass to Lesley, the wonderful organiser of


In fact we all were!

It was an absolutely fabulous day!

This fair was rather handy for us as normally

we have to travel further afield and find a b&b for the night.

Well not this time!!

However, I very nearly didn't get there, having succumbed

to what I think was some sort of food poisoning, on Friday.

Whilst rolling around in agony, I was also gutted.

How could I ever miss this? So...

Mr S dashed to the Drs to pick up a prescription.

I lay down and said my prayers and took all of my pills!

Lo and behold...a miraculous recovery meant

that I could join in with all the fun!

'Nostalgic Mix' was just the right name too...oh my what a mix it was!

Here are just a few snippets...

It was wonderful to see so many people coming through the doors ,

to put faces to blog names and generally meet the loveliest people.

This was just what Totnes needed !

***** are a star *****

Events like this don't just happen and Lesley's organisation was first class.

(She had thought of everything!)

And the header pic...

Well it shouts out 'caption competition', doesn't it?

So...what is Amanda really saying?

Humorous comments please...there's a prize for the winner...

(probably something which I did not manage to no..I didn't mean that!! Honest)

A vintage fabric prize!

Meanwhile...remember that you saw/read it here first...

Plastic fantastic headgear is sooo 'in' this season and really

completes that vintage outfit!

And if you believe that then you really are a bigger twit than our model!

Thanks again Lesley.

In all seriousness, the day was very special and I'm glad that

I was able to be part of it.

Thanks for the pics. Looks like I would easily have spent my pocket money.
Glad you recovered and had a wonderful day.

What a brave woman Amanda is. I think my caption would be. 'the things I do for a free glass of wine'.

Great photos of a very special day. Glad you had a miracle cure & able to make it to the fair. I cannot think of anything to say about Amanda's headgear as I am sooooo tired after the past week & all the places I have been. Perhaps if I have a glass of wine, I will get some inspiration!! xx

Donna said...

Hahaha you are naughty Sal ;-)

I can't enter the competition because I was sat opposite Amanda and know what she was saying!

It was a great day and, looking at the photos, we had some wonderful stalls and great stock for the good people of Totnes. No wonder they were all so delighted with the fair. Well done Lesley x

Country Cottage Chic said...

There was a young lady called Amanda
Who went to Totnes for a gander
At a nostalgic mix & for a laugh...
"And all I got was this silly scarf"


Glad you had fun!

I am also sooo tired after Vintage Mix & Shepton today, so I will show the lovely Amanda to Michael & we will come up with a slogan, probably one each as we won't agree.
Lovely to meet you both

The Weaver of Grass said...

Do wish we had things like that up here Sal - all looks fantastic.

tracey @ the vintage bothy said...

...."mmm we have such wonderful hairdressers here, wine instead of coffee when having ones highlights done!"

Julie said...

no witty slogan here, although i shall try to think (and by the by, Amanda is v glam isn't she - anyone who can still manage to look that sophisticated and stylish in a rainhoodthingumy (don't know what they are called) - should be a prize winner in their own right!!

I only stopped to comment that I am most jealous of you all getting to eat at The Tangerine Tree - my daughter and I went there for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and I thought it was fabulous - such yummy treats - in fact, I think I have a photo on my blog of her getting stuck into the chocolate icing on a cupcake, with a look of sheer delight on her face (what the photo doesn't show is me doing much the same thing opposite her!) Glad you were feeling better and able to go, it looks like it was absolutely fab

Dear Sal
It was lovely to see you again at Totnes, sorry I hadn't finished faffing when you were taking pics! My loss....
Here is my caption entry for the great pic of Amanda........

Get ME in my plastic!
The look is fantastic
They all say ' it's so cutting edge '
But who am I fooling,
My man is NOT drooling,
He thinks I've gone over the edge!

That looks like a Vintage Fair and a half - wish I'd been there! Love the rain-hat! My mum had one like that many years ago!
