Saturday saw Mr Treasure, Little Treasure and I heading to Chipping Sodbury for a day of vintage loveliness at the ever brilliant Vintage and Handmade Textiles and Fashion Fair.
Here's my stall, complete with my new 'wine boxes covered with vintage adverts' shelves. I was up until 1am one day last week getting them finished!
I took all sorts of vintage treasures to sell, from clothes and cushions, to fabric and hats. Mr Treasure has even started to join in the treasure seeking having found a gorgeous Brexton picnic set. He was very pleased that it found a new home on Saturday!
I love having a stall at the Vintage and Handmade Fairs...there's always a lovely atmosphere and it's a fabulous opportunity to catch up with familiar faces as well as meet new ones! I do find I get itchy feet when I'm behind my stall, not because I'd rather be somewhere else, but because I can see so many other stalls bursting with vintage treasures that I want to go and investigate! Luckily, I did manage to leave Mr Treasure in charge and sneak off for a look around the fair. Here's a peek at just some of the vintage lovelies I found... (I'm afraid I can't remember the names of some of the stalls, so apologies for missing out a few names here and there).
Viv is so talented and I absolutely love her work. I've got a few of Viv's brooches - I call them my little rays of sunshine because they make me smile every time I wear them. I couldn't resist adding a couple more to my collection on Saturday!
Sal always has the most amazing array of vintage feedsack fabrics. I think it would be lovely to use them all and make a quilt.
I met Suzie at last year's Vintage and Handmade Textiles and Fashion Fair. I would happily give any of her knitted designs a home (as long as I didn't have to make them myself...I'm not known for my knitting skills!)
You might recognise the little knitted house from 'Kirstie's Homemade Home'...it was Suzie who created them and was featured in the first series too!
My mum made me all sorts of Clothkits clothes and toys when I was little and I loved them. I'm really thrilled that Clothkits is back on the scene... now I'll be able to make things for Little Treasure too!
A mouth-watering display, as always!
I do love a touch of glitz and sparkle. I'm a big fan of brooches - you can change a whole outfit in a matter of seconds just by picking out different brooches to wear.
Such pretty accessories...perfect for any summer occasion. I love the vintage hues, especially the dusty pink and powdery blue.
It really was a fabulous day. A huge thank you and three cheers to Jayne and Michele for organising another glorious day of vintage loveliness!
