I am currently on a mission to find as many lovely vintage items as possible for the Vintage & Handmade Fair which is in just over 3 weeks time!
So, off we went on Monday to Malvern Fleamarket to see what we could find. There were loads of people going in - the busiest I've seen it for many months, but for me there wasn't a lot to choose from. Some prices are really sky high & prices for the same thing can vary hugely.
The best looking stall was Tracey of The Vintage Bothy, who always has a colourful & inviting display.
I did find a few bits & bobs, most of which will make an appearance at the fair - my favourites are the two vintage dogs & the tin above - I'm very tempted to keep them...but my mantlepiece is starting to look like a china dog sanctuary....
I loved this little picture.
A Vernon Ward print of Mousehole.
A lovely wooden jigsaw puzzle - all the birds are separate pieces.
Vintage gardening books which have such lovely cover illustrations.
Recently Claire of "Made in Pixieland" had asked her blog readers to suggest a title for one of her new pictures & she liked the one I suggested so she very kindly sent me the first of the prints! It was a lovely surprise & I intend framing it for my bathroom wall.
The very talented Claire will be having a stall at the V&H Fair so be sure to stop by & look at her lovely cards & prints.
