Vintage stock buying panic!

I am attending a vintage fair on Saturday (the Originate Creative Craft and Vintage Fayre in Flitwick, Bedfordshire).  As I did well with sales at my last fair; I am now worried that I don't have enough stock for another fair so soon; so I have been out and about again, looking for more treasures.  To be honest, the amount of stock there is lying about this house; I probably could do several fairs without buying another thing!  That doesn't stop me though, so here are a few things I found:

Not a good photo (as usual); but it's a lovely Vernon Ward print in a pretty painted wooden frame.

Various pieces of hand painted china; an old tea caddy tin and a glass dressing table dish.  Hopefully more to follow before Saturday.  Oh, and my beautiful assistant will be asssiting me, dressed in her outfit from the bowling alley party!


  1. Good Luck with the fair, I think Linda from Tabbyroo may be doing the same one. Perhaps you could display a couple of flyers for the Northampton one. Love your Vernon Ward, I am sure that will be snapped up.

  2. Hi Ann,

    Thanks. I've just seen that on Linda's blog - I expect I'll see her there! I'll put flyers on my list of things to take. If no-one wants the Vernon Ward, I would be tempted to keep it; but hubby is not keen - too flowery apparently!

  3. Hi Vicki, nice to catch up with you in blogland. You've found some lovely things, looking forward to saturday it's our first fair of the year,see you then Linda x
