Where does the time go?
I have been to 2 great vintage fairs over the last couple of weeks; and haven't blogged about either of them; which is terrible. Not only that; but I didn't get any photos at the wonderful Northampton Vintage Fair; as I left my phone in the car. Luckily there are alot of other stallholders who have done a much better job than me at photos and description. As probably the last person on earth to blog about it; the day was great. Fantastic weather; lovely fellow stallholders; lots of great customers and loads of wonderful vintage items.
Among many others, these ladies have done a much better write up than me: Ann at Vintage at the Corner House and Sharon at Clover Cottage who took some great pictures.
Last Saturday, I went to another fair, the Joy of Vintage fair in Watford; which is such an event, with live music and dancing too; to say nothing of the number of stalls, beauty parlour and cafe! Again I was a miserable failure on the photography front and only got these pictures of my stall part way through:
Thank you to all the people involved in organising both these fairs; it must be such a lot of work. I hope you get time to relax before the next ones!
On Sunday, as many of the car boots round here haven't re-started yet; I thought I'd try out a local table top sale. It wasn't any good; but the girls and I managed to walk the dog close by in an area I never knew was there; even though I have lived in the vicinity all my life. This church is beautiful; but tucked away a little from the very busy main roads around it:
There was a moated manor house here (now long gone) in the days when the area was a village miles from London and not the part of sprawling suburbia it is now. I wonder what vintage treasures were owned by the occupiers??
