price. This is no ordinary jumble sale, no indeed, this is vintage and antique at its best with amazing stall holders and oodles of fabulous goodies to be found. This event is not to be missed and should be in every diary across the land! The top names in vintage are there and the atmosphere, as always, is wonderful. It is as is says a jumble for people to have a good root around more that browse at the normally more structured stalls. It is not in piles you understand but the dressing of the stalls is not the same as their other events..... Thus the Vintage Bazaar Giant Jumble! Just look at these lovely people all dressed up .. Some of you may know Emma but the gentlemen with her are visitors to the VB all the time and always dress like this .... Don't they look amazing!!
people to wander from stall to stall...
on the cake!!
take time out from your vintage treasure hunting ... This is where I get to
have a cuppa with friends and catch up a little. They also sell cakes, so my husband is a happy bunny as well.
There was a queue to go in and happy faces waiting patiently to go through the doors to vintage wonderland. I met up with the lovely Nicki of Quilterdown fame who was there to buy fabrics for the gorgeous quilts that she makes ( remember my paisley quilt?) well we also got to have coffee catch up too which was great.
Another lovely friend was there Sally and she was with Leith and we got to
have a lovely chat and a quick catch up too. The thing about the VB events is that it is so friendly and you see lots of people that you know and you are surrounded by vintage goodies .. its heaven!
The two pictures above were on Sue,s stall, Vintage to Victorian and can you spy this big box of monograms all in alphabetical order? and the box of vintage threads? Well yes ladies and gents I did go in to these and buy a few ... Well it had to be done!
Well I walked around and I took a few snaps for you to look at but they are just of things that were on offer and not of peoples stalls particularly as it was very busy and my normal way of doing things would not have worked I am afraid, people were digging in and of course buying, I do not like to
disturb buyers on treasure hunts and equally do not like to stop people looking for the stall holders sake because after all they are there to sell, this is how they make their living. So I snapped away at bits to show you but lots of photos had bags or hands in so I have just decided to show you some of what was on offer ....
Stall holders included The Washerwoman, Daisy Darling, Le Shed, Tilly-D, Hesta Nesta, Vintage to
As you can see from the pictures I have managed to take there were some wonderful things on offer to purchase and not, I think you will agree, like
your normal jumble at all.
I had a lovely morning wandering around and catching up with people and also having a truffle because this is the sort of venue where truffling is encouraged completely .. .....Have you spotted the baskets? yes so did I but was very good I only bought one .... ah you will have to wait and see which ....
Well that is it for today, sorry this has been late today but my mum has not been well and I had to sort
Have a wonderful day and I will see you back here on Thursday ... until then Happy Stitching! XX
