Vintage & Handmade Fair
I know this is (literally) last week's news, but I have to talk about the Vintage and Handmade Fair last Saturday. Apologies to those of you who looked for me there. As you will have realised from my last post, there were pressing reasons why I had to cancel my stall. However, by Saturday I was feeling in need of getting out and being distracted, and I couldn't have picked a nicer distraction.
I just managed to drop in for a visit, and I'm really glad I did. The fair was marvellous, and there was such a friendly atmosphere. Even so, I was a little bit shy about introducing myself under the circumstances. I know there were many of you there with whom I've swapped comments, and I hope you'll understand if I didn't make myself known to you. Better to say hello under happier circumstances. However, I was very pleased to finally meet Michele of Cowboys and Custard. She is every bit as lovely as her blog, and she and Jayne were so very understanding and kind about my having to cancel my stall.
Anyway, this is most of what I bought (a couple of things got left out of the photo).
Even though I went at the end of the fair, I still managed to find plenty of kitsch vintage goodies to tempt me.
And I have to mention the cakes too. Wow! I had an enormous slice of spiced apple cake - it was fantastic! Go on - hands up if it was you that made it! Lovely!
I am SO looking forward to November!
