Packing to come home for me is always a work of art, hubby always tells me that I have bought too much and I am not going to get it all in somehow I always manage to pack it all in and shut it up. Mind you poor old hubby was moaning like crazy at the weight and insisted I reduce each suitcase’s weight by around 5 kilos each, so out went his PJ’s, out went his toiletries, his wet flannel which weighed quite a bit, and I insisted he wear his coat even though it had been up in the 90’s... but I think you will agree with me that it was worth it.
Some of the bits are to go into the booth, some are for the fair at Olney and some (in actual fact lots) are now sitting on my shelves and in my collections.
This vintage patchwork eiderdown I found at a flea market and it is just waiting to be completed by someone. It is lovingly put together just needs it's wadding and backing. I did not mind as I would not have got it home otherwise.
The lady that was selling the rabbit also had some wonderful ephemera and I could not resist these boxes as I think they will look great displayed.
This is just a small taster of the things I will be bringing with me to the fair, I have loads of ephemera, some beautiful brooches and more of those tins that I talked about also a lot of items are already in the booth at Brackley Antiques Cellar. Hopefully this will wet your appetite and you will come and pay me a visit and say hello at the fair.
