Chagford...Honiton...Newark.. it must be Thursday!

This has to be one of the busiest runs of fairs that we have attempted in a long time!
After the bustle of the fairs in Chagford and then Honiton, it was time to pack the van and head off up North.....

The very uninspiring interior of our Shopping Arcade (silly name for a tent don't you think?)

But it soon gets licked into shape with Rosy curtains to cover the sides, and a selection of vintage bits & bobs.....

As you can see the invitations for The Avington Brocante take pride of place...it is this coming Tuesday, the 20th of October if anyone lives in the Winchester (ish) area. Open from 9.30 to 4.

We had a very busy first day, and then day two was slightly quieter.... which meant I had time to catch up with an old friend who lives locally (but not for long, eh Jo!)

You can see that we had to wrap up warm as it was rather chilly! I met some lovely customers, especially a very enthusiastic pair of ladies who bought from me on the Thursday afternoon. (Hi girls, if you are reading this!!) See you in the Spring as I am not brave enough to do this in December, sorry!

Liz, it was great to see the workings of your lovely sales booth! I can't imagine the work that it takes to pack, un-pack, sell, re-pack....what an amazing lady you are! I always love to see "what you're up to"..... I do know what you mean about meeting wonderful people though! That is a large part of the fun of it all, isn't it? Best to you and your lovely girlie things of fashion! Louise
