thankyou Vintage at the Village Hall sellers- it was a FABULOUS day!


It was the sellers that made the 2nd
Vintage at the Village Hall fair
such an outstanding success!

Taking time and trouble to source such a varied selection
of beautiful and affordable vintage treasures,
displaying them so temptingly,
spending time chatting to buyers and browsers alike,
and promoting the fair with such energy and enthusiasm
over the past few months turned a sunny Monday in May
into a dream come true for the 600-plus Vintage Lovers
who came through the door!

Amongst the outside sellers were Jenny Jones
with THE most enchanting display of gardening wares


Irene from The Loft with painted furniture,
Colin and Joan's Garden Artefacts


Jeffinie and John from La Belle Maison
with fabulous French furniture and furnishings



Claire and Lindsey of Beau Frippery
with a treasure trove of vintage jewellery


and, resplendent in her new colours
proudly promoting the Vintage Tea Parties
Miss Dolly the 1950s caravan!


with a mixture of English and French textiles



Jo Ross at Hesta Nesta with the prettiest and plumpest
quilts and cushions




lovely Lizzy Drake, caught unawares setting up ;)


an exquisitely beautiful display from Lucy Bloom




Lizzie had come straight from the 3-day Shepton Mallet fair
and still had the energy to create a stunning stand!


Sophie and Kirsty at Fading Grace turned their cosy little corner
into a haven of girly gorgeousness


my Ted and Bunny stand was the usual mixture
of quirky finds all fighting for space
in an organised (ish) clutter!




Gill's Random handmade jewellery wasn't quite set-up
when I took this photo- sorry

like no-one else I know and has a
stunning eye for colour and design


Alex filled a last-minute cancellation and her pretty
stall looked really delightful.

Thanks to you all, lovely sellers!
(and thankyou to  Donna for lending me some of the photos)

AAaawww shucks :o)

It was a fantastic day! My only regret was that I only spent 2 hours there instead of the 6 which it was open for, and I could quite happily have managed :o)

Thankyou for organising such a splendid day, and thankyou to all your sellers and yourself for bringing such scrumptuous vintage and handmade treasures for us all to enjoy and buy :o)

It all looks lovely Elaine. What date's the next one? If I put it in the diary now ... Surely it must be third time lucky?!!!!

Thank you fabulous Elaine! As a stallholder I can confirm that we had a glorious day - lots of lovely visitors, good sales and brilliant weather as well! And your home-made lavender cakes were delicious. Cx
