The First day of Spring!


 Just look at that sky! This was the scene at The Ardingly Antiques and Collectors Fair on Tuesday this week.


 We arrived at our new location (a smaller marquee not far from where we used to be) bright and early ready for the day ahead.....


The sun was already up and pouring lovely natural light into the marquee.


We had the added bonus of having outside space to display things, which is great for presenting an attractive entrance to the stand.


Trading was very brisk, and it was great that our regular customers found us. I also met some lovely new folk who read this blog. A big thank you to them for popping in. I can't tell you how nice it is to meet friendly smiling faces when you have been up since 3 am!


This fella (above) was on our neighbours stand. they are a lovely family from Belgium who have superb and interesting stock.


This little boy was on the Beyond France stand next to mine. Maud also had a busy morning. We are pleased with the move to a new location and you can see us both on Saturday together at The Vintage Bazaar in Hartley Wintney, Hampshire where we are stalling out side-by-side again!

Tuesday was glorious wasn't it! Bet you were happy to have the sun shining down on you at Ardingly!

It looks lovely and even better that the sun was shinning it makes all the difference when you trade outside. Enjoy the next fair and have a good week, dee xx
