Vintage Fair Success

Oh my God have I got the bug now, I can't tell you how pleased I was with how it went and my sales well all I have to say is that my journey home was with a much smaller load. 
The venue was a beautiful hall, with a vintage tea room, 40s music playing with talented stallholders and so many yummy things to buy, I will say no more except post lots of pictures for you.
This was my stall

More lovely stalls
You can just see in the background a very talented lady Emma (pictured below taking photos) who made these amazing lampshades do visit her website

This is the Emma's work a very talented textile artist do look at her website she is amazing! and a lovely girl to match!

And the lovely stall her furniture is so beautifully painted.
It was great to meet so many talented and lovely ladies!

I have booked two more Fairs and can't wait for the next one, although I am going to have to start sewing again!!  Thank you everyone for all your encouraging words it really helped. Now I think its off to bed as I am a little tired!!

I'm so glad it was a success, and if you ever decide to travel to any fairs further afield - do let me know if you're near Norfolk! x

    Woohoo! You go Jill, great that you went and now on to more, well done.

  22. How lovely your stall looked. Classy, is how I'd describe it. If I'd been there I think I'd have been toying with the idea (if the price was right) of buying those lovely bowls and plates edged with grey and with a floral image in the centre, a rose perhaps? I love all those whites, pinks and greys. Really, the whole fair looks enchanting, and that's not a word I bandy about! I'd love to have been there.
