I had a little jaunt out this week looking for new stock for the fair on the 21st May and decided to go into Essex and ended up driving through the most quaintest of villages called Finchingfield.

It has a little village pond complete with ducks and geese and some really sweet little shops including a small antique centre.

I purchased some bits from there and after chatting to a local they told me about a vintage shop that was in the next village of Great Bardfield and so I set off into my little car and headed off to find a little gem hidden in the centre of another little village.

Heathers Vintage Designs – You can check out her blog here it is only small but inside it is packed with lovely vintage and handmade goodies. I was like a child in a sweetshop and picked up lots of lovely items to take to the fair.She had just had the plasterer in when I go there and half the stock had been put away into a tiny cellar that she has but that did not stop me ferreting my way around (nearly sent a teapot crashing in my haste).

We chatted about our joint love of vintage and she was so friendly and helpful that I just know I will be taking another run down there to see what great items she has for me next time.

Until then here are some of the items I managed to find on my trip all labelled up and packed away - gosh arn't I just the orgnaised one.
