Phew what a busy weekend!
Saturday was my 54th birthday ...... the day whizzed by (much like the last 54 years) with visits from family and friends .... cards and pressies to be opened and then a family dinner to finish the day.
Sunday was the day of the first Buckingham Vintage & Handmade Fair organised by Trevor and Ann .... the sun was shining for us and the venue was lovely despite being on the first floor ..... certainly got some cardio-vascular exercise taking the stock in!
Fortunately we had an extra pair of hands with us ... Ellie has been nagging to come with us and yesterday was her day. We had an early start leaving home at 7.30 and not getting back until 5.30 and despite this she behaved perfectly and was a great help. She found a new role as unofficial fair photographer and here are her pix to give you a flavour of the day
Did get carried away a little didn't she?? These are just a few .... she used my camera and my phone and almost filled both memory cards!
Some of our regular sellers from Northampton were there plus some newcomers who were venturing out for the first time ... the atmosphere was just right and a steady flow of visitors wandered round admiring all the loveliness on display.
This morning has been spent sorting out stock brought back home and the rest that I have stashed in various nooks and crannies ..... my next fair will be the Jubilee Garden Party
followed by the 2nd Vintage Jumble
It's half term and this week I am having a week off from childminding .... there is a lot of spring cleaning to be done round here and the accounts books are calling too ... if the forecast snow arrives that should keep me out of mischief for several days!
I am thinking about resurrecting my other blog Aunty Wainwright's Treasures ..... with car booty starting seriously this coming weekend I really do have to make some space around here ..... keep any eye out for some vintage goodies at very sensible prices !
