Avington Brocante


Yesterday was The annual Avington Brocante. This really was a special event, helped of course by the weather.. the location.. and of course the amazing collection of stall holders gathered together by Chloe.


Below is our stand as we were setting up in the cool early morning mist.......


The row of outside stands taking shape.....


We were next to Ken and Jonathan, whose stand looked fabulous as always!



Much later in the day once the shoppers had trundled home with arms full of booty!


What I enjoyed about the fair was the diversity of unusual and truly beautiful stands..... I could have happily bought this funky bus.



Inside the house and orangery were more stands.....



Ali was there (above) and Jo. Their stands complimented each other beautifully don't you think?


The parklands shimmering in the sunshine with the sound of peacocks calling in the background......


This was a truly wonderful day, and well worth putting in your diary as a "not to miss event" next year.

Gorgeous pictures Lizzie, and it was fab to catch up with you both again and have a natter. Your stand looked gorgeous with lots of temptation. It was the most beautiful fair and I am thrilled to bits with my linen chemise so hard to find ones that fit me. See you tomorrow.
Love
