As I'm sure I've said before, my housemate Diane runs a vintage items and a handmade jewelry store. She has some really gorgeous items, and regularly has stalls at local vintage fairs.
I often accompany her on these trips, just to help out and as an excuse for me to wander round too, but there is one fair I particularly love. Its based in Stockport and is called Vintage Village. Held on the second Sunday of every month, its a veritable treasure trove of awesomeness.
Normally I don't buy anything (I purposely don't take money with me so that I don't) but at the September fair I actually picked up a few awesome finds.
I sadly didn't keep a record of whose stall I got each item from but they are all regular stall holders as far as I'm aware.
Firstly, I was looking for a trio. I love cups and saucers and think trios just look so cute. When I bought one, the stall holder casually mentioned it was one of a set. So I asked to look at the rest...
2 minutes later, and I was the proud owner of a set of 4 trios, all very pretty.
Sadly, one has a crack in it, but I still love them.
On the way back from buying the trios, I spotted these poking out from under a pile of glassware. Again, I thought they were so pretty, and figured one could never have enough plates.
Its musical too! When you open the bottom drawer the mechanism kicks in and it plays a little tune.
Thats it for now. I have a recipe to share a bit later on, and I'm going to be writing a couple of Halloween themed posts over the next couple of days. Mainly recipes and one about our attempt at pumpkin carving.
