Another Busy (Vintage) Week!

 Last week was another busy one! A very good friend came to stay and we enjoyed our annual catch-up combined with a few days of Vintage and Charity Shopping!

 We chanced upon this delightful shop in the town of Minehead. It is called Sally's Vintage Chic

 The shop has a lovely fresh and sunny feel to it - as you can see by these photographs.

Next stop was Newark, and a hectic 2 days sharing the Marquee with Michele, Alan and Maud.

Thank you to all the bloggers and smiling customers who came to see us. It was a good fair despite the indifferent weather.

I just wish that the weather had been a little kinder at The Cotswolds Vintage fair on Saturday...

Dark and threatening clouds, followed by heavy rain showers interspersed with sunshine was the order of the day.

- But that didn't stop the crowds arriving on the dot of 10 am to shop!

 Here are just a few images of the 40 stands at this fabulous event.... Above is Niki's stand , piled high with temptation.

This colourful stand really caught my eye. It was beautifully arranged and goes by the name of 

Above is All Things Vintage and Beautiful and below is Hesta Nesta

Sorry that I don't have links for everyone, if you see your stand here, please let me know and I will happily add a link to your website or blog.
Despite the weather we had a good day and met some super new customers. Do put the date in your diary for 2013 as this Fair is one that you shouldn't miss!

It was a fab day Liz, so sorry I didn't really get to talk to you! We were so busy I hardly had time for a sandwich at lunchtime. See you at Hartley Wintney.

Oh those two teddies in bed look just like a sweet devoted elderly couple, which thinking about it I suppose they are. The Velvet eccentrics look tremendous.
