Even though we had been planning an 'Autumn' fair it turned out to be the hottest October day ever recorded, but that didn't stop the eager vintage treasure hunters from filling up the hall in Chipping Sodbury! We had a steady flow of shoppers all day snapping up lovely goodies - even tweed jackets & knitted gloves although everyone was in in summer attire.
This was my view from behind my stall...note the cute handmade felt donkeys - so cute!
The pretty tablecloths didn't last long & went off to new homes.
The vintage goody bags attracted lots of attention with buyers carefully inspecting the contents to see which they preferred.
This little sewing machine was purchased by a lady who had a whole collection of them.
Sewing baskets proved to be popular too.
Of course I had to do a bit of shopping myself & my Buy Of The Day was this wonderful counter top paper dispenser from a haberdashery shop - here it is in it's new home just waiting for me to pack up internet orders!
I had such a lovely day meeting friends old & new - stallholders & visitors alike....as always I'd like to thank everyone for making such an effort to make it so successful.
Michele & I are planning for the Christmas Fair already, so hope to see you there!
