I have returned to Blog land after a bit of an absence. To be honest nothing much has really happened in my world apart from turning painter and decorator to spruce up the kitchen which I will do a post about at a later date. Yesterday we loaded the van and set out for Market Harborough in Leicestershire, a lovely market town. Ann and Trevor had organised the second of their vintage fairs in the town centre. As usual there was a wonderful mix of lovely stands with lots of temptation on offer.
This was the first lovely find of the day, a stunning Victorian Celery vase (even though I detest celery) it had to come home. It has the word Celery etched on the front with decorative ferns around it. The vase came from the lovely Wendy (Ticking Stripes) and would look stunning with a nightlight in for Christmas or even for it's intended purpose. Inside are a selection of antique chandelier crystal droplets.
The silver candlestick would look stunning on a Christmas table. I also purchased the long antique chandelier drops from Bryony who has the most stunning items for sale.
Two sweet little Victorian bisque dolls house dolls, and a miniature pin cushion from Chris.
The terrible twins, two tiny bisque dolls house dolls. Debbie (Home thoughts from Vintage wants) who collects dolls told me that they date from the early 1900's.
Beautiful vintage wedding shoes in their original box from Heather at Hellish Designs.
A sweet little box from Debbies sister and hubby.
Little vintage wedding cake decorations in their original box from Bryony.
Possibly my favourite purchase of the day, an antique silvered glass witches ball from Chris. I have got the age old dilemma of 'do I sell, or do I keep?' I must be the most rubbish antique dealer on the planet as I always do this...I want to keep everything!
Thank you to everyone who made a purchase from me yesterday and it was lovely to meet up with fellow bloggers. Thank you to Ann and Trevor for all their hard work that went into making the fair such a lovely day for everyone. Have a great week.
