Diaries out ladies and gents ...... Vintage fair dates for April.

The Sun has made an appearance and
it is soon April .... Let the vintage season begin
in earnest, treasures to find and friends to 
catch up with ......

Well hello to all my lovely readers.  Its been a hard few weeks with my Mum, she had a bad episode and is in a hospital right now.  We are hoping to move her to care within three weeks fingers crossed. This is the reason for my absence at the moment, but, hopefully soon it will be back to work here.  For now I will be popping in and out to you as my Mum has been coming first and taken lots of my time. She is very confused as well and it has been a thoroughly upsetting time.

So to start us all off I have some vintage dates for your diaries for April.  These are the only ones that I know off right now but lets hope there is at least one of these you are able to make it to.  I myself, all things being equal, will be at the Vintage Bazaar on Saturday so if any of you make it there please come say hello.

  1. Lovely to see your post Sarah. Hope your wee mum is settled in a permanent home that is able to meet her needs. Won't make Saturday's VB, sorry to say but hopefully see you at one in the near future. It is so lovely to see the promise of Spring isn't it! Love, Mo xx

    1. Thank you Mo it is so difficult at the moment but I am having to get back to work soon so I will have to let the carers of my Mum do their job .... I have taken on that role out of pure fright and love so it is time to get sorted at home again.

      Hope to catch up soon.
