When we saw a sign saying "Antique and Collectors" fair in the local college yesterday we thought we'd call in.
Most of the stalls should say "rubbish that you wouldn't throw in the bin is for sale here" ha ha, but occasionally you find a "gem" amongst them,
this is Julie's stall," The Cloth Shed", and it's full of lovely things, some from France.
I found some mustard Kate Forman fabric to make into an autumnal skirt,
and a pretty piece of printed cloth "enjoy the day"!
The blue John Bull puncture repair outfit tin was from another stall and will go in the bag on my bike, not that I'd have the faintest idea how to mend a puncture should I get one, but it will look the part!!
More loveliness from "The Cloth Shed"( Julie has a blog of the same name)
On another stall I found some lovely little glasses with hunting scenes on,
two tiny port or sherry? glasses, and a gorgeous stemmed jug that I'll fill with fresh cream to pour over the mince pies this Christmas. I did see mince pies on the shelves in the supermarket this week but in my book it's far too early to be eating Christmas goodies.....
while I was rummaging I found this pipe and cigarette packet for £2 each,
a large white linen pillowcase with a tiny initial "E" sewn on the top....bargain of the day for only a pound.
One man's rubbish is another man's treasure!!
