A blog meet up and dee dee's vintage and handmade summer fair

Hi Everyone,

well it take's a meeting up of blog friends to kick start me blogging again. Saturday saw 4 lovely blogging friends traveling on the train from 4 different locations to meet up in sunny Cardiff, Wales. I have met lovely Emma and Vix before but it was a first time meeting to see the lovely Tania.

Emma, Tania and Vix 3 gorgeous ladies with beautiful souls and a fun attitude to life. We laughed, we shopped , we ate and drank lovely cocktails until we could shop and laugh no more. It was a wonderful day and I can't wait to meet up with them again, thank you so much for a brilliant day ladies. You can read more on Vix's blog here and also on Tania's blog here and if you want to pop along and meet Emma you can find her here

So a few weeks ago was my second fair I have organised this year this time our summer one, and the Sun shone all day and the sellers did themselves and me so proud with there amazing and beautiful stalls and stock. This time we had gazebo's outside and it worked so well.  It was a lovely day with a lovely friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Here are a few photo's of the day. Please click on the photo's and they will appear bigger for you.

This was my own stall I always share the stage with 2 friends. My larder sold as well as the lovely type writer to a lovely young lad that uses them for his college work it was nice to think it was going to be used again.

This was my lovely friend Bronia's stall

Karen and Vicky always share the stage with me these are their lovely pitches.

The first photo was in the entrance to the tea room, and then the remaining 3 are the lovely Liz from the washer women blog for some reason I cant seem to add her blog link

The lovely Elaine from Ted and Bunny joined us to she had some lovely things,

Ester from Jubilee high tea and one of the outside stalls

The top 2 photo's are Mary's stall bag end bags you can find her on facebook and another of some of the outside sellers

More vintage sellers

Lovely Jo from and Mrs M makes who you can find on facebook.
There were many other stalls to but I think I have photo over loaded this post already :-)

I am now planning and looking ahead to my next fair this time the theme is Autumn on the 12th October at North curry village hall. I have the flyers printed already and I am busy getting the word out if you can share it to that would be great :-) I am fully booked for this event.

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post, I will now try to start blogging again once a week after not buying anything vintage for 2 months I have been getting out and about again and will share some of my lovely buys next time. My summerhouse is also finely finished and I cant wait to share it with you also ;-)

Take lots of care

Hugs dee xx
