Nostalgic Mix 2 ...bouncers, rawlplugs and ...Tonkas! ;-)

There's nothing like a box of vintage rawlplugs to get you going!!

Or, failing that, when a stall holder offers to show you

his vintage Tonka toy, you know you really have hit the jackpot!


'Guys' Stuff' certainly drew the crowds today at

Nostalgic Mix 2

Brilliant, beautifully presented and it has to be said...

'Best in show'!! LOL

A big 'well done' to Mr This 'n That !! Gold star!

I love it when the 'other halves' can play their part!

Mr Snippets was usefully employed as a ' bouncer' on the door,

before the fair began...and a fine job he made of that too !!

The 'TQ9 ers' must be shuddering in their shoes!!

So drum roll, please, for all things vintage... bloke style!


The prettiest stall for me was...Ellie's...she is so talented!

Bustle and Sew

It was a fabulous day and once again, a certain lady

came up trumps, with her superb organisation.

I don't know how she keeps so calm and cool!

On a day when March became the new July...and the sun streamed

through the windows at the Totnes Civic Hall,

'Nostalgic Mix' basked in the Devon sunshine and ended the day

with quite a tan!

A big 'well done' to everyone who turned up to make this day one to remember :-

Amanda, Barbara and Hesta, who were such lovely company

each side of us ;

all of the other stall holders who produced such stunning displays;

shoppers who came from far and wide ;

the people at most fabulous vintage style tea shop,


who kept our throats nice and moist and also served the most wonderful

array of delicious edibles;

my very own Mr Snippets, who does all my fetching and carrying!

But most of all, a massive thanks to Lesley.

Without her, none of this would have happened.

Thanks for a fabulous day!


I'm now off to dream about rawlplugs... and Tonka toys!!

Looks like a great day, I was suppose to be there but work messed me around with my holiday :( Fingers crossed for next time! x

I could have spent a fortune there, but probably not as much as MrT with that blokes stall, right up his street, he even brought back an old tobacco tin from New Zealand,( mind you I did bring back some buttons).

Not sure what a Tonka toy is - sounds slightly rude - but not at a vintage day - it all looks so wonderful and so well set out. Wish Totnes was nearer.

I was so sorry to have missed the show yesterday. I had planned to make a visit but things conspired against it ... felt under the weather, and was late getting up because of it. But your photos are lovely - love Boys' Stuff! What a brilliant idea!

The Tonka truck is excellent and the little dressing table caught my attention.

Sweet dreams. xx

Than you Sal, and Mr Snippets too! maybe we'll have to get him a proper bouncer outfit for next time (that is if he plans to make a career of it?) Thank you too for the wonderful write up.
Love Lesley XXX

A wonderful post Sal, and a great idea for entertaining the lads so that they don't see how much we are spending! :O)

Diane said...

I may never forgive you for not holding this in August when I am down your way. What utter gorgeousness. xxxxx

KC'sCourt! said...

I had a wonderful time there, spent loads of money too! Wished I was early enough to see Mr Snippets as a bouncer:0)!
