Hubby and I took an impromptu trip this morning to Brackley Antique Cellar, in Brackley Northamptonshire/Oxfordshire area. This lovely antiques centre holds many dealers with a good turn over of stock and there is always something interesting as the stands are so varied.
This gorgeous large vintage floral fabric box was the first find of the day.
Covered in the scrummiest of vintage fabrics and in a very large size...possibly staying!
5 1/2 yards of the most gorgeous beaded 20's trim and in such good unused condition. I was lucky to find it in such a large quantity and it will be coming to Totnes Nostalgic Mix 3 with me.
I was really thrilled to find an antique milliners hat block as I recently sold my own. I have wanted one in this shape for ages.
I am about to wax it to bring out the shine. It is such a lovely, tactile object and was an very good price also which pleased hubby who in turn didn't mind parting with the contents of his wallet! We also met Debbie (Home thoughts from Vintage Wants) and her hubby. They have a stand at Brackley. It really is a fantastic place and you will need a good couple of hours to nose round as there is so much to look at...well worth the trip. Have a wonderful week.
