'Sew Happy' after the Handmade, Vintage 'Love-A-Fair'

Welcome to the photo diary of the most 'Vintagetastic' Handmade, Vintage 'Love-A-Fair'...a day full of true friendship, handmade and vintage treasure, giggles, the many lovely people who came along to enjoy being surrounded by gorgeous wares and yummy tea and treats!


Our 'Home' section full of china, kitchenware and items to decorate your country home!

















Liz from The Ginger Bread House joined in the fun with her homemade Ginger Bread yumminess and we served her homemade Blackcurrent and Lemon Cordial in the Vintage tearoom...which is so delicious!




Sarah and Jackie's stall was full of gorgeous handmade and vintage wares...and were fab customers too, thanks girlies xxxx




Rosie had the most beautiful fabrics and vintage wares and not to mention her gorgeous handmade rag rugs...I jumped on her stall straignt away and bought the fab wire cake stand for the tearoom, a gorgeous piece of bark cloth fabric, apron and vintage patchwork baby quilt...I'll do a show and tell in my next post!


We have a cute porch at the venue which we decked out with vintage garden wares





A love seeing men joining us at the fair...I think they come for the cake!




A few of my Cheryl-ann Taylor made in England adornments were thrown in along the way!



My favourite section of all 'Vintage Kids'





Look who came home with me 'William' the push along doggy, Lennon adores him and so did the other children who came along to the 'Love-A-Fair'



Stunning garden flower picked fresh from the garden to decorate the tea tables!


The Vintage Tearoom menu...we had sweet and savoury offerings...everyone commented on how lovely the food was which was so sweet. Naomi my dear friend made the most wonderful salads to accompany the Rustic handmade Cheese Scones and Cornish pasty.
Gary, Naomi and I were kept busy filling up tummies!







Sally...a fellow vintage lover and she introduced Lennon and I to 'William', what a lovely and fun friend to be part of the Fair.


A few pieces purchased by Moi!


Naomi, Anne, Sally and I were so busy all day that this is the only photo of Anne I took as we walked through the doors home on our way to bed after a fantastic time setting up the Love-A-Fair.


'Sew Happy' is how I feel after the most successful and wonderful Handmade, Vintage 'Love-A-Fair'...All the hard work was worth every stitch and I can't wait until the Christmas Love'A-Fair
Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Lots of Handmade & Vintage Love xxxx
