I'd been looking forward to today for ages...the promise of the Vintage and Handmade Fair at Chipping Sodbury turned me into an over excitable being as soon as I read it was happening!
Driving through South Gloucestershire, Mr Treasure and I kept commenting on how French it all looked (the sun streaming through the car windows and the smell of suntan lotion probably added to the holiday feel). Even the Fair's venue - the Town Hall - was flying the French flag!
So many gorgeous stalls, but I made a beeline for The Vintage Magpie as soon as I arrived. Mr Treasure bought me the best present ever - another bunny to join the little gang I have at home...we chose Agnes.
I love Nicky's wonderful bears, bunnies and elephants. It was fabulous to see them face-to-face and to meet their talented creator too!
The little blue elephant eggcup from Cowboys and Custard just had to come home with me...
There were gorgeous bags aplenty at The Sea Garden (one of my favourite stalls).
I loved the buttons and stamps on these boxes (I can't remember the name of this stall - oops, apologies!)
Brightly coloured fabric made into all sorts of things caught my eye at Hen House.
Niki's Nostalgia at the Stonehouse stall was filled with lots of textile treasure...I fell in love with one of her pillow designs and just couldn't go home without it (it's in the last photo below...)
As soon as we got home, I rushed outside to hang up the bunting I'd bought from Shabby Chick. I'm thrilled with it!
Even Agnes couldn't resist getting out in the sun!
What a brilliant day! It was fabulous to meet so many of the faces behind the blogs I love reading. There were several instances of "It's you" and "I thought I recognised you from your blog photos"! It was like meeting old friends, even though all we've ever shared is each other's posts and not actually ever met before.
The Fair was a complete triumph (hoorah for everyone involved in it!)...roll on the next one, I can't wait!
