Yesterday I was adding lots of little Christmas Fairies & Angels to my onlineshop when I got to wondering what the collective nouns were for groups of fairies. A Flock? A Flight? A Fancy? A Frolic? AFlutter maybe? I thought any of those would be sweet but I decided to look it up & found that it is a 'herd' of fairies! Now, I don't know about you, but I don't think that fits very well! Horses, sheep & elephants assemble in herds...but fairies? Doesn't sound nearly dainty enough! Suggests a group of fairies clumping around in big boots rather than flittering about in glittery slippers & sprinkled in fairy dust. Which would you choose? Angels on the other hand are grouped into a Choir, a Host or a Chorus, all of which seem quite appropriate!
It has taken me a while to download some photos from the fabulous V&H Christmas Fair...I just don't seem to have much time these days!
Anyway, it was a wonderful day with around 900 visitors streaming in from opening time to closing time.
There were vintage treasures & handmade delights on every stall as you can see from these photos. Everything looked so wonderful but unfortunately I couldn't post all the photos, so if you'd like to see more we do have an album on our Facebook page here.
The next fair that I will be attending is the fabulous Vintage Bazaar in Frome on the 15th December -
My name is Jayne - I'm an avid collector of all things vintage. I live in a 1930's farm cottage at the end of a muddy lane.
I love my family, pets, horse riding, decorating, cooking, sewing, reading, gardening, car boot sales, auctions & fleamarkets.
I have a passion for vintage which has lead to me starting an online shop & becoming a vintage fair organiser which keeps me busy!
