No, unfortunately its not all about the Vintage and Handmade Fair as I forgot my camera! A great day was had by all with masses of vintage treasures to tempt the customers. When I looked up after rushing to complete my stand (as usual the last bit was placed as Jayne announced the doors were about to open) I thought this looks like a vintage girls idea of heaven! I did manage to get a bit of a look round and wished I had loads of money as I was tempted by so many things. It was a lovely day and so nice to see blogging friends again, there is always such a warm friendly feeling to the V&H fair, I think we have all settled down cosily with one another and I am sure we are already looking forward to November!
Well as I have no photos of the fair I thought I would share some car boot finds with you. I was disappointed to have missed my regular Sunday boot and was therefore delighted to find that there was an extra one in Truro on Bank Holiday Monday. I got there early so as to be first in the que. Most of the boots here are run so that you are not allowed in till half an hour after the cars start to set up so that all is ready and everyone has a fair chance, its much more civilised than crowds descending on poor booters as they try and unload. But it pays to be early and get in first! Well here are a few of my finds....
I am delighted with this stash of hundreds of mother of pearl and glass buttons. I have plans for these!
But I think the best find of the day is this wonderful 1940s mirror. It belonged to the mother of the lady I bought it from, I could tell she was a bit sad to see it go and said "You will look after it wont you?" It still smells of her mothers perfume which some might think a bit odd but I find enchanting! After promising to look after it I am not sure now wether I want to sell it or not and it does look nice with some old glass bottles and things in front of it in our sitting room!
