South Molton Vintage Fair

Yesterday, we trundled off through the Devon countryside,

to South Molton, in North Devon, to take part in a new fair.

This event was held at The Assembly Halls.

And very nice it was too!!

We were greeted properly and treated so well by the organiser, Fenella

...and the people of South Molton were given a lesson in vintage!

Plus, I had absolutely oodles of space to display my fabrics....and that is important!

Fenella had really considered that and it was obvious from talking to her that

the well being of her stallholders was of utmost importance.

Thank you, Fenella.

I do think that sometimes, some organisers of fairs forget that space does matter

and they try to squeeze in too many tables!

(A bit like housing estates, where they try to squash in too many houses

just to make more money! ;-)

There was a vast array of vintage wares for sale and I always

think that these events are a superb history lesson and a step back in time,

where one can appreciate the quality of the past.

We really enjoyed our day and made new friends too.

A huge well done to Fenella for organising a fab event,

to which I know we will return.

Next up is the fabulous Vintage Bazaar at Frome, this coming Saturday, 21st.

And, mark my words, this is definitely one not to miss!

See you there!

Were you only there on the Saturday Sal? I went on Sunday to visit (it was my Birthday so I couldn't stall) and didn't see you there!!!
