Yesterday was the 6th Northampton Vintage and Handmade Fair arranged by Annie & Trevor of Vintage at the Corner House .... it was a roaring success as always with hundreds of people flocking through the doors despite some heavy rain showers. There were a couple of last minute stall cancellations and I do hope Amy of Blighty Boutique and Jo of Hesta & the Pugs are feeling better this morning ... you were missed ladies and of course Amy's lovely mum Annie the Felt Fairy.
All the stalls looked lush .... would you like to look at some of them?
Of course you would!
Sharon of Shabby Polkadots with some lovely china & glassware and her hand painted tea trolley
This was the stall opposite me with a clever way of displaying lovely handmade bags
Then there was this Lalabibaby woman ;-)
who spied this platter in her most favourite blue & white transferware on Sharon's stall ..... Sharon was off taking some photos and having a natter before the fair opened so I shoplifted it when she wasn't looking
It's a real beauty and now I just have to find some shelf space for it!
I also purchased a gorgeous needle case made in vintage embroidered fabric from Suzanne of Hearts N Kisses .......... Suzanne doesn't have a blog but this link is to her website and Etsy shop .... do take a look it is beautiful and I am kicking myself now for not taking a photo of her stand.
No new Lilian Rowles or Bessie Pease Guttmann to add to my collection this week but I was lucky to find this luscious fabric on Ebay this week
I was telling Debbie of Vintage Wants Not Needs about this find as I'd purchased a Bessie Pease print from her at a previous fair. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow Debs x
Finally these pretty postcards were found at Hitchin Flea Market this week ... I can see this becoming another addiction
Hope you have all had a lovely weekend xx
