A busy vintage weekend

On Saturday, eldest daughter became my faithful assistant at the Think Vintage and Handmade fair in Wolverton, Milton Keynes.  We had a great time there; it was busy for most of the day and we must have grown some new muscles packing and unpacking our stall!

It was great to see Ann and Trevor from the Northampton Vintage Fair and Linda of TabbyRoo.  As usual, I forgot to take any photos until nearly the end; and even then, they were at a very strange angles:

I must improve my photographs; although I have said that before!

On Sunday, my assistant and I went to our local football ground, to a new antique fair and flea market.  I think she was hoping she might see some nice footballers; but no luck!  However, I bought a shoe-box full of old postcards, which I can never resist.  There are hundreds like this:

Then there was a busy Monday, scouring charity shops.  Not too much about, but I did indulge my liking for blue and white stripes and jugs:

Off to enjoy the sunshine now, while it lasts...


  1. Lovely to see you on Saturday, your box of postcards was a great find at the boot sale.

  3. Hi Ann, It was great to see you too. Sorry about the china! The postcards are great; have already spent ages reading alot of them.

  4. Hi Linda, Lovely to see you too. Glad you liked the Quality Street tin. Tins are another of my weaknesses, just like postcards and jugs! Vicki x
