vintage fair news

The vintage fair in Haverfordwest was great fun. You are usually guaranteed to meet lots of interesting stallholders and customers and this event disn't disappoint. It's nice to meet up with old and new friends to have a gossip and catch up with the news. I spotted one customer who was holding one of my bags. She said that she has used it almost every day since buying it!

Camilla from Canvas and Cloth was there with her stall crammed full of vintage and new haberdashery and fabrics. I'm always jealous of how fab her stall looks - serious stall envy! I'm always impressed by beautiful displays where stallholders have taken the time and effort to make their stall look enticing. Camilla shared her stall with Jeannie who is a talented knitter (something I cannot do!) who makes contemporary knitted items from naturally dyed yarn. I may just treat myself to a beanie hat this winter. Jeannie has a blog, pop over to see what she's up to Geranium blog.

The organizer Mandy had a stall crammed full of vintage goodies. I bought some beautiful glass buttons to use on my Christmas stockings and a Kenwood Chef cookbook. I was lucky enough to get a vintage Kenwood Chef from Freecycle but I've hardly used it as I just didn't know how to use it! The book is full of handy hints for wives to cook meals for their husbands. Love it!

At the fair I handed out lots of postcards advertising the next vintage fair which I will be selling at. It is very local to me, around the corner infact! It is being held in the Hotel Plas Hyfryd, Narberth on Saturday 19th November. I'm planning on taking my purse so I can pick up some unique Christmas presents. The organisers have a website: Vintage Narberth.

That's enough talk about Christmas - I'm off to slave over the sewing machine!
