The Vintage & Handmade fair preview.....

OK, spot the silly mistake...... Handmade & Vintage instead of Vintage & Handmade....
Anyway we all know that its only 5 days to go.... so thought I would try a "dress rehearsal" on the kitchen table this morning.

To give you a taster of what I am taking along to the fair on Saturday in Chipping Sodbury...
There will be vintage fabrics, puzzles, dolls, dolls house items, Vintage Xmas decorations, fabric covered boxes, jewellery, corsage, vintage pinnies, vintage children's hankies, colourful china & a lot, lot more.......

The "dress rehearsal" was rather overwhelming and it would appear that once again I have squirrelled away far too much stuff for the fair, but hopefully I should be able to cram it all onto the table with the help of the trusty shelves!

Festive fairies....
Snowmen, gnomes.. more fairies.... the list is endless! See you there! http://www.vintageandhandmade.co.uk/

All these previews make me *almost* wish I didn't have a stall so I could spend my time shopping instead! I spy a nice pinicushion in the second picture.

Our visitors are really in for a treat!

Hi Liz

I dare not do a trial run - I'll be horrified at the amount I'm taking again! At least there should be something left ready for Bridport!!!! Maybe I won't unpack the car!

See you Saturday.

Lovely things Lizzie...can't wait to see it all in 'the flesh' ...the glitter village looks enchanting.
No way can I have a dry-run...two tables and too much stuff...I just have to wing it on the day!!
See you there,

Am getting excited now! It looks fab.

Cowboys and Custard said...

I think we are all in the same boat by the sounds of it.. too much stuff and not enough room.
I love those Christmas decs.. we are certainly in for a treat.

Oooooh so exciting. I am so glad that I am near you so I can pop over and buy. You know I can't resist your goodies!

I haven't done a mock up this time either. Have dragged out LOADS more stock so I just know it's not going to work, ho hum!

Liz...you know how I love the holiday items! I wish I could jump across to visit your fair! We celebrate our Thanksgiving early this year and then the following week I pull out all the Christmas decorations to get ready for the Victorian Holiday party early December! Your pictures have gotten me into the spirit! Thanks...have fun! Louise

Dear Liz
Hello, how are you? Manic I bet, with the V&H round the corner and all the other fairs you're involved with. I am so much looking forward to Saturday and seeing all the lovely goodies on display!! Fab!
Thanks for popping by - and yes, the plate is Woods Berylware - I have masses of it and we use it all the time, which makes me very happy as it is one 'special' thing which I can honestly say comes out and sees the light of day - everyday! One day I'll do a blog post and show photos of it all.
Good luck for Saturday - see you there!

carolyn said...

Just wondering if you've actually sold that fairy in the photograph with the little houses? If not I'd be interested in purchasing, could you let me know please?

BusyLizzie said...

Hi carolyn, sadly the fairy did sell yesterday.. so sorry! Lizzie x

carolyn said...

I'm not at all surprised, thanks for letting me know.
