In the past few weeks I have been busy buying for the next run of fairs. These large wooden spools from France have been selling well, and they look great displayed on some of my Antique and recycled Indian painted furniture.
Yesterday we restocked the Dairy House with this Indian cupboard with wire mesh doors (perfect for the kitchen). We also took some Indian gates and other pieces of carved wood items (below).
The wood and metal work well alongside gorgeous old French grainsacks....
This coming Saturday I am selling at a new fair in Ilminster at the Meeting House . I will be taking along a selection of French Linen sheets, Eastern European Mangle cloths, buttons, wooden cotton spools and a selection of these beauties (below)....
Carved Antique wooden items from India. They look wonderful alongside the linen sheets and other stock.
Most of them have been adapted so that they can by hung on the wall or used as candle sconces.
I adore the layers of chipped old paint, some of them would have adorned buildings for hundreds of years.
The following weekend I will be having my usual stall at The Vintage and Handmade Fair in Chipping Sodbury, if there is room in the van I might bring along a few Vintage Indian items to ring the changes to my stand. What do you think?
