We have been busy sorting and getting stock ready for our first fair of the year next Saturday at Flitwick village hall, it is billed as a:-
Creative craft and Vintage Fair And will be on from 11- 4 pm
We have been lovingly washing plates, sundae dishes and other treasure before wrapping and packing ready for the big day...
Admittedly at the moment it all seems a lot of work, as I'm trying to make some handmade goodies as well, interspersed with work, teenagers and helping Mum out. Actually the vintage and handmade bit isn't the problem it's the housework and all the maintenance that needs doing in our treasured but old crumbly house!
Apart from regular trips to a hospital clinic, Mum hasn't been out for ages, so we insisted on taking her out today, she worries that she is too much of a nuisance to take out, that ,she will never be to me. We went over to Brackley Antiques cellar. Mum has always had an interest in antiques and used to help out occasionally in her friends shop years ago when I was a child. I was left to rummage around the shop and my favourite part was the musty cellar full of junk, so it all started at a young age !
We were really surprised at how big the Antiques cellar was. Ann of Vintage at the corner house and Debbie of Home thoughts from vintage wants have a booth there and it is gorgeous! Well worth a visit.
I recently bought this vintage push along dog, he needs a good' bath' and will hopefully be coming along to the fair with us- we've named him Reg!Enjoy your week Linda xx
