Next door to me was Gertie's stall with her collection of lovely German sewing boxes and pretty handmade goods.
I was drawn to Sue (Vintage to Victorian) and her wonderful button drawer. I bought some beauties from here though I would have liked more time to have a thorough rummage.
Betty and Violet had a very pretty looking stall with lovely handmade items on offer...
I'm afraid I don't know who this lady is though she was very nice to chat to and had some fabby items which she said were the contents of her attic which she'd hoarded away for years. Yummy original vintage items of the best kind.
Here are Sal's oh so tempting vintage fabrics. Very dangerous for the purse. Naughty me!
Another great stall with a fab selection of vintage Christmas items. Wish I'd had more time to spend here and buy some goodies.
This fabulous garden themed stall was a delight to see, so beautifully staged.
And here is Isabelle with a gorgeous display of goodies, many French in origin. I bought many beautiful vintage buttons from Isabelle which I look forward to using in my creations if I can part with them!
Organiser Clare of Daisy Darling had her customarily stunning display of handmade hats...
...and co-organiser Lizzie, aside from all the vintage loveliness she had for sale, wowed us all with her fabulous dreamcoat of many colours, vintage of course!
Last but not least, the prize for the pinkest stall goes to...!
Ah, I see the quilt has transformed my stall into 'enhouse. How classy!
We managed to squeeze my ladders in to display the many cushions on which I've worked so hard.
My handmade cards proved popular once more.
Goodies made from gorgeous vintage European fabrics and the delicious and rare vintage dolly bunkbeds with their gorgeous handmade quilts...
Teacup candles, notebooks, plate stands, stitchy pictures; it's all crammed in!
There's more? You might just see the edge of my Christmas stitchy postcards here.
Not forgetting my owls, people cannot resist picking them up for a fondle. The Munchkin was in charge of tidying them up again frequently!
So there you have it, if you were unable to make it, I hope you enjoyed this little virtual tour although it's fair to say it only offers you a glimpse of all that was on offer, I didn't have the time to photograph all the great stalls. I've had several requests from eagle eyed shoppers for goods already so if you spot something you fancy in the photos, please feel free to get in touch to enquire as to their availability. (I charge only cost price for postage plus a very small fee of about 50p to cover packing materials.) I will try to list some items in my blogshop in due course. And don't forget that the thoroughly marvellous and original Vintage and Handmade Fair takes place in less than a month, on Sunday 28 November in Chipping Sodbury where you will find me with an array of goodies.
But for now, this weekend I turn yet another year older, I must now go to collect my mum from the station as she is kindly going to be in charge of the Munchkin while Mr HenHouse whisks me away to a secret destination for 3 and a half days of child-free heaven: bliss! It's currently "destination unknown"; he's a schemer that man of mine! See you next week....
