I have been gathering together some of my new treasures for my next vintage fair, Saturday 11th September in Stamford , Lincolnshire.
I have tried to find things with a bit more of a masculine theme as I get quite a few men come up to me asking 'Do you have anything for men?' So I am really trying to accommodate the male of the species!! It is quite hard actually to find things for men. I have managed to come across a lovely original Gladstone bag which does indeed have some of the contents!! which actually look rather scary and gruesome, but it will appeal to someone, and will probably be an interesting talking point as we try to work out what they were for!!
Mmmmmm.........interesting, and let's say one of the items inside involves a length of rubber tubing - say no more.........
I love these two wooden fishing reels, they make a lovely display.
Some spiffing reads from the 20's and 30's for boys - jolly good show!! Particularly love the Sexton Blake adventure comics.
Something for the ladies - I haven't forgotten you in my quest for masculine items. Two rather gorgeous hand embroidered pictures and an ancient, rather naive sampler.
A rather lovely, large vintage 30's quilt in the most beautiful faded fabric and in great condition. The vintage Art Deco towel rail was also a fantastic recent find and will be coming with me to the fair. I was tempted to paint it but I think I will leave it as the wood has a lovely patination to it.
A sweet little vintage leather case, all cleaned up and ready to go!!
I have a busy week ahead making some handmade items for the fair, son back to college, meeting two ladies who are setting up a Christmas shop in a nearby village and would like to stock some of my handmade items.....the list is endless!! Have a great week everyone.
PS. Please vote for what Mr. 'G' should wear to my next fair - on the side bar!! Just a bit of fun and I will post the Pics of the winning outfit - well, head gear!!!
