Vintage Jumble Time

I'm busy sorting, pricing and packing in readiness for the Vintage Jumble to be held at Rangeworthy Village Hall this Saturday.  It has been organised by the lovely Jayne & Michele of V&H fame with the local WI serving wonderful refreshments.  

This is just a fraction of the goodies that I will be bringing with me including my patchwork trunk that involved an awful lot of swear words when I re-covered it!  I am just hoping it doesn't snow and the Met office have got it wrong!  Snow in March...can you believe it?
Hope you can make it on Saturday, see you then, I will be the one with a team of Pugs pulling the sledge........

Devizes & Manchester

The Vintage Bazaar in Devizes was a huge success, the hall was packed for most of the day.  Lizzie & Clare (and Jack) did a wonderful job of organising another successful fair, thank you for a great day and all your hard work.  The venue was spacious with lots of natural light and right in the centre of town so hopefully we will return there in the future.

Sunday was the annual Antique Textile Society fair in Manchester.  I was very good and saved like mad for this event and came away with some beauties for my own collection and also future fairs. 

The cage bustle and corset in the above picture came from Meg Andrews stand.  I have been hunting for a bustle for ages so was thrilled to find this one in very good condition.  The black jacket is part of a Victorian three piece I also found.

This gorgeous Edwardian beaded gown was one of many finds.

Even Camille came away with a new outfit....a beautiful silk velvet 1920's coat from Sallie Ead and a 20's jet head dress from another stand..she's got a better wardrobe than me!

Now I couldn't come away without some quilty gorgeousness could I?  Found this lovely Victorian Log Cabin quilt and couldn't resist....coveting for a while then will probably be for sale.  I also met up with Heather from Hellish Designs who was standing and Viv from Hens Teeth who was also partaking of a little retail therapy like myself!
I had a wonderful time truffling out treasures, lots of which will be for sale at my upcoming fairs.
Have a great week.
