As I was by the doorway and the sun was shining brightly I decided to explore the marque and the little garden beyond.
This is where I came across this fabulous stall called Nicholas and Steele Vintage. There was some beautiful and quirky vintage items on here and each time you looked you saw something else. I love truffling around on a stall like this as there is so much to look at. I noticed the cushions and we had a laugh about that because the Friday this lady had put out on her Facebook page that most people doing a fair the next day was packing the car and ticking lists, but in fact she was making cushions because she had remembered at the seventh hour that she had just sold her last ones and she needed some home furnishing on her stall. Lots of great bits to buy and it soon became crowded again so I said my farewells and went on around the marquee.......
.... And look what I found Etoile Brocante stall. With such great vintage goodies. I loved the wooden rabbits and horses.
This was a very different and quirky stall and there was everything from the wooden animals to enamel signs, china, books and pictures. They were partly in and partly out of the back of the marquee. The sun was shinning but it was still a little cold.
The people who own this were lovely and friendly and we chatted for a while and then I spotted the couple who own Suitably Vintage ( they were at the VB the week before) I asked if they had a stall and they said no they were on the hunt for lovely bits and pieces too! You meet all the best people at vintage fairs and they are all really friendly, helpful and smiley ...
I then found Lisa of Lovely Hudson (named after her dog) I have met Lisa before at a couple of fairs one being a Sarah Moore pop up. There were bundles of vintage fabrics and pieces of vintage quilts and some haberdashery items on this pretty stall along with baskets, china and cushions too.
Well I had to come away with a few little bits didn't I as it would have been rude not too...
Opposite Lisa I found a great stall also selling some haberdashery items along with some other wonderful vintage goodies so I crossed over and was able to take some photos for you all, but by now it was nearly impossible so I was so lucky here. This business is called Melonberry Vintage and as you can see there were some beautiful pieces on offer. There were vintage ribbons sold by the meter and some lovely packs of lace and bits as well as china and baskets.
I found some lovely little bits and bobs for my haberdashery box at home so I was very happy indeed. I really could not take any more photos in the marque. Although it was not huge there were probably a good 15 stalls in there that I really could get no where near.
I decided to try and find my husband again so I went back into the main house to see if I could find him. It had thinned out a tiny wee bit and I was able to get to Hellish Designs and just in time to see something I had seen from afar when I had gone past and it was still there so I was able to pick that up.
Again a eclectic array of vintage loveliness awaits you and there was a beautiful vintage quilt along side lovely white china and fabric covered lampshades.
By this time it really was cramped and unable to get to see or photograph any more I decided to phone my husband to see where he was .. He had departed after the coffee he said and was walking around the town. I could not get up the stairs to the stalls up there so I went to join him.
We walked around Midhurst, which is very pretty and we found a lovely little place for lunch before heading off to Chichester for the afternoon. This was a very lovely fair and I am so glad that I attended but I wish I could have got to see some more.
We had a lovely day and spent the afternoon in Chichester and actually had dinner there in the evening before heading home.
I hope you have enjoyed a little peek inside the Spring Brocante and as always Happy Stitching!
