Original Vintage & Handmade Spring Fair,
The Town Hall, Chipping Sodbury, South Glos, BS37 6AD
10am - 4pm. £1.00 admission
|This is Geante de Hedelfingen.|
Roundish oval, firm, very juicy, good quality and almond flavoured.
|Two traditional fairies...|
|This is Olivia, dressed in a c1930's French floral cotton. I salvaged the top section of a Victorian baby gown to create her jacket.|
|Ava is dressed in a cosy pure wool jacket that I have hand embroidered with flowers. She has pretty cotton layers beneath and a vintage posy brooch in her hair.|
|This useful little table has been given a makeover with a heavily distressed paint effect and decoupaged pages from antique books.|
|I'm going to be bringing lots of vintage/antique treasures with me too...|
Including this sweet skittle set.
|Each has been handmade from felt, with a c1930 doll's face. A great collectable, the likes of which I have never seen before.|
|As a hat collector myself, these will be very difficult to part with, but I hope someone will enjoy owning a one-off piece of social history.|
|This one is my favourite and is in fabulous condition for its age. Its really quite tiny though and shows how much bigger women have become in just over a century.|
|And a tiny hat, possibly for a child or a doll.|
|I also have this beautiful original painting of roses.|
|Love the colours.|
I have lots more items filling the car, ready for the fair tomorrow...
Hope to see you there if you can make it - Always a lovely event with a gorgeous variety of stalls and products.
Off to work now - Have a great day!
