The Vintage and Handmade Textile Fair

This was my favourite stall at yesterday's Vintage and Handmade Textile Fair.

Not only were the items beautifully made and displayed

but the stall holders, Katie and Nat (aka Mr and Mrs Textile Treasure Seeker)

brought along their gorgeous baby daughter, Sophie (aka Little Treasure)

to enjoy the day with them!

A vintage lover in the making, I'd say!

And if you peep closely you can even see that the baby theme was

continued in their display!!

A fine day was had by all as the steady flow of customers

mingled amongst beautiful fabrics, balls of wool,

tweed jackets, kits to make children's clothes, brooches...

...not forgetting the abundance of handmade items and all the accessories

needed to aid one's sewing projects.

And, of course, every kitchen needs one of these....

Thank you to Michele and Jayne for organising

another, fine 'Vintage and Handmade' event!

In two weeks time, on Saturday June 18th, I will be trundling across

Dartmoor, with my fabrics, to take part in a new vintage

event at Tavistock...details on my sidebar.

More about this very soon!

That baby is going to grow up soaked in vitage. Nice to see the materials back in prominence on your blog.

Lovely to see you and Mr Snippets yesterday and your immaculate collection of fabrics. I think baby Sophie should be our official V & H mascot.. she is such a darling little baby and obviously enjoys vintage style as I didn't hear her cry all day.
Hope you have a great time in Tavistock.. wish I could be there too.
