Wayward Rose was next with some beautiful vintage goodies to truffle through, everyone there had made such an effort to make their stall inviting and eye catching and so much vintage and antique goodies to choose from it was outstanding.
All Things Vintage and Beautiful were there and that was fabulous as I had not seen
them in ages, it happens being so many vintage fairs around and all over the country. We live on the South Coast as you know and travel miles and miles to go to as many as we possibly can. Some are on the same day so it is about which one to go to. Anyway it was lovely to say hello and have a little chat, the fair by now, was very busy indeed. Not so you could not move but never the less people wanted to look at everything so I took some photos and moved along.
Suitably Vintage were there and as always there was some gorgeous haberdashery along with inspiration packs and other gorgeous vintage treasures. They had been at the Cotswolds fair and were going to be at The Dorset Brocante on the Bank Holiday also. We had a quick chat and I was able to take some photos with out hands that were everywhere looking through the treasure on offer!
Rosehip was there too and this is who I buy those strips of vintage fabrics from with calligraphy
tags on from. There are other gorgeous vintage goodies on offer as well and the stall looked beautiful it was fairly difficult to get good photos with so many people but I managed in the end.... Plus buying a few little bits as well..
The Ostrich and the Silkworm was there and of course her beautiful doggie as well. He was a bit hot to sit in his usual metal tub or basket he preferred the coolness of the grass underfoot. I did fan him with a piece of card and he enjoyed that. I was able to have a good look around and a little chat and of course take some photos for you all...
Lois Kirsten was there with all her beautiful vintage treasure laid out with such flare, It threw
me a little because she did not have her twig support with little bottles dangling with flowers in on her stall and I did not know it was her to begin with. We all look for people or know its their stall by the props they all have and when they change it or decide to do something completely different well it is of course exciting but makes us all surprised ..... We were chatting about it and she said it was time for a change and it looked really stunning....
Little Green Door was there with her beautiful stitchery and we had a little chat, what was lovely she told me the last time I saw her earlier this year and put pictures on my blog she got so much new business from it and thanked me. It was so nice to hear. It does work with helping each other and so many of you have travelled miles to come to some of these fairs because of reading about them here so advertising and helping one another helps us all..... There was some beautiful embroidery on offer she is very talented indeed.
Then who should I spy but Maud of Beyond France fame with her gorgeous linens. There
was so much to look at and we had a little catch up. She always asked about my Mum and we catch up. You will have to wait and see what we bought from her for our bedroom but we were very happy with our purchase....
It was time to have a little lunch and we went in search of drinks and some of those gorgeous salads that Hector and Fox had on offer either in a wrap or indeed in a box with a slice of Frittata as well. All the things apart from the lettuce and the feta were grown in there own gardens and it was just what was needed on such a hot day. The picture on the left is of some of their home grown produce from their land. My husband did have a slice or two of their cakes later in the day, and said they were scrummy, It was just too hot for me to eat much. Whilst we were sat there a Stitchworks, her name was Brenda and she and her husband came and shared our table over lunch and we had a lovely chat. It is great when readers come and say hello and she was very complimentary about my blog.... I am so glad to get feed back. It was lovely to meet you both Brenda and I hope you enjoyed the Vintage Fair as much as we did....
lady came up to me and asked if I was Sarah from Homespun
Earlier when I was walking around who did I spy but Chris and her husband of Cosy Chris and Cosy Club fame! It was so lovely to see them. We decided we needed to keep truffling but to meet up later which we did. And we all went across the road and had some champagne in the pub garden listening to the cricket still going on. We celebrated her book that came out earlier this month and had a fabulous hour or so catching up.
It was the perfect ending to a perfect day. Well I hope that you have enjoyed this little look at the Wisborough fair and I would like to thank Lucy and her team for bringing together yet another fabulous event. Lucy will be organising Daylesford fair next month and we will be attending there and meeting up with friends again for dinner in the evening.
Well that is it for today I hope you have enjoyed a little peek at this fair and hope that you have a wonderful day whatever you are up to. Happy Stitching! XX
