Vintage and Handmade Bliss!

As you all know (we may have mentioned it once or twice!) Victoria and I took ourselves up to Chipping Sodbury to visit the Vintage and Handmade Fair this weekend.
It was well worth the drive (in the gusting wind and driving rain!) and we both agreed we were very pleased we made the effort to go.
The village itself was lovely, very picturesque and well worth a little stroll round (we probably would have explored a bit more had the weather been better!)

The fair was really well organised and with 26 stands full of treasures.There was lots to drool over!
I could have bought the entire contents of Chipping Sodbury Town Hall but I restrained myself and bought these little gems of lovelyness!

A gorgeous Union Jack cushion with Cath Kidston fabric trim and a beautiful Union Jack pennant with vintage fabric and trims from the lovely Hen at Henhouse. (I had already spotted what I wanted from her preview post!)
The pretty heart was bought from Sal at Sal's Snippets, I just couldn't resist the lovely colours and pretty flower.


I love this patriotic magnet and these pretty floral magnetic pegs from Lucy Bloom. The vintage fabric dusters are from Shabby Chick, as are the gorgeous vintage baubles in the following picture (perfect for my pink, bedroom tree)
The 'Home Sweet Home' card is from the talented Claire at Elfie and Me I just couldn't leave it behind!


I picked up these cool vintage Christmas bits too! The vintage wrapping paper and Christmas badges were from Acorn and Will . The vintage building block has a 'K' on it so obviously I had to bring it home! I bought it, with the Noddy badges from Michelle at Cowboys and Custard.
I'm afraid I cant remember who I got the vintage angel tree ornaments or the Noddy print from, If I bought it from you please tell me!!!


The vintage hair slide, bobby pins and toothbrush and gorgeous vintage Christmas cards are from International Quality Kitsch (I have developed a love of Vintage cards that started at the Rose Bowl in LA)


The visit was very inspiring, and we got to meet lots of fellow bloggers! I might even have a little crafting session myself today!

Lots of Love

Hen said...

Hi Kelly,
That's a marvellous haul you have there, where else could you get all those goodies under one roof? So pleased you enjoyed yourself and I really admire you coming such a long way in such dire weather so I'm glad it was worth it. You and Victoria definitely deserve a hardened vintage shopper award! Loved having a chat (especially in the loo, all the best chats happen there!) Hope to see you at the next fair if not before.
