A vintage mini-break

Just returned from the best kind of weekend - a couple of nights in our most favourite hotel in Evesham, Worcestershire

It's a great family and dog-friendly hotel, in beautiful grounds, with an indoor swimming pool and fantastic meals!   We've been going there since our eldest daughter was a tiny baby and will find any excuse to go back.  Luckily for me; this time the excuse was the wonderful Costwolds Vintage Fair  

It was held in a beautiful venue, Toddington Village Hall and was amazingly well attended.  As usual, I only managed to get a few blurry pictures of my stall and no-one elses; but if you look on the the fairs website, I'm sure other stall holders did a much better job at photographing all the lovely items and the gorgeous stalls:

In this one you can just see the queue of people in the doorway, just before opening time!  I think every stallholder was busy all day, and there were a lot of very happy customers.

All in all it was a lovely way to spend a weekend, and I hope to repeat the experience again.

This meant that I had to do a little more stock buying:

A silver-plated coffee set

And I couldn't resist these sweet chalk or plaster doggies!

Off for a family do now, so fingers crossed for less rain than we have had over the last few days.

PS - I have not be paid to plug the hotel; we just love it!


  1. Your stall looks great, don't think I got a chance to have a good close look! Hope to see you soon Linda xx

  2. Thank you; I didn't get the chance to see yours either; it was just so busy! Hope to see you at Northampton
