Hi Lizzie - LOVELY to see you too and all the was a great fair and I had such a good time...could have spent a fortune.
(Ha! Looking at my hair in your photo...perhaps I should tone down the colour?!! Last time I saw Bronia, she mentioned something about 'menopausal-red' and 'women of a certain age'...teehee! Looks like I may be hitting that bracket!)

Good luck at Oxford - I'm sure they'll lap up those beautiful shoes of yours.
Take care,
Niki x

I would love to eventually make one of these vintage textile fairs I would need a very deep pocket full of pennies though..!! You must eat a lot of porridge to keep your energy level so high to cope with all this rushing around the countryside selling your wonderful things.
hope Oxford is good for you...

Looks like a fine time was had by all! ;-)

Great to see you Liz, hope it was a good day. Such a shame you couldn't escape to join us for lunch.

Good luck in Oxford, Cardiff and the rest. How you keep going beats me!!!!

Hello Lizzie Sorry I didnt respond to your comment on the last post. I cant remember what the dress looked like now! I think I saw so much there that its all become a blur now. I think it was a sort of checky sort of patern and plain in pale blue with possibly red??? Not much help really, could you do a pick of all your dolls dresses on your next post? Good luck at your next fair. I can vouch for you having a lovely stand! love jane xx

Hi Jane
Yes, it was checked! I was planning to send it to you & we could do a "bloggers swap" (ie no money changing hands!)
What do you think?

Lovely pic, lovely blog.

Hope to see you again soon.
