Well with only ONE week until "The Shabby Vintage Junk" extravaganza fair I am still busy preparing my goodies...

Made another little "mood" board as i call it to show that I am selling lots of vintage linen/lace/sewing goodies etc...
I have priced ALL of my linen...(well MOST of it)...~~~~

I still have LOTS of "smalls" to pack...BUT with my MAIN stuff kind of ready to transport...I am only panicking a "LITTLE" bit!!

I found a HUGE BIG LOT of 6 x GORGEOUS VINTAGE PINK VELVET (made in England) curtains yesterday....(they filled MY CAR BOOT!!)...~~~

as well as some GREAT VINTAGE COTTON REELS/SPOOLS.....(love the PINK & BLUE colours)..

& a LOT of delightful VINTAGE children's hankies..!!

SOO MORE STUFF to take to the fair~~~~~~~

I am also displaying/selling MY GORGEOUS VINTAGE Collection of "playing/childrens cards"...
Love their colours..their themes...

I am planning on "pegging" them with little pegs (doh!!)..a long some hanging RIBBON??? if you get my drift??

It all sounds so super exciting Andrea. You'll all have such fun and yes, we expect a photo shoot of the setting up please.
Good luck with it all and stick to the inside lane on the bridge (LOL)

You are going to have an amazing stall. You are sure to need heaps of stock because you'll have to keep filling the gaps when you sell somethng.

Hi Andrea

I've just read your comment you left on Alcia's post...NO NO NO you do have wonderful offerings!! I'v spotted quite a FEW pieces I would LIKE, I bet once I get there though, they will be gone.
It's only normal to have Pre Market Nerves..worrying you don't have enough stock or your stock is not good enough...don't worry yours is!!
I'm looking forward to meeting you on Friday
At least you don't have to worry about the weather, cause you're under cover

Congrats on a great blog. I feel really at home browsing your posts.

Can you tell me how you paint your suitcases and what paint you use. Do you undercoat, sand, varnish etc

All the best with your stall.
