Vintage and Handmade Fair

Well yesterday I caught the bus to Chipping Sodbury as the Vintage and Handmade Fair was on at the Town Hall.  It's the first time that I've been along to one of these, the last one was held on the same day that I went up to London for the Craft Show at the Ally Pally.

Chipping Sodbury high street is a lovely oldy fash type of street with beautiful buildings and some gorgeous little gift shops and a tea room called Poppy's which I've not been to yet.

The fair was lovely and full of the most gorgeous vintage fabrics and other bits and pieces.  It was great to be able to stroke the fabrics and take in all of the fab colours and designs.  There were also lots of vintage clothing and linens.

I had some lovely chats to some of the ladies on the stalls.  Here are a few stalls that were beautifully displaying the most gorgeous fabrics

This gorgeous stall was being run by a lovely lady on behalf of her daughter, Donna Flower.  They have the most fantastic range of vintage fabrics and you can find them here.  I loved the whole look of this stall, a simply beautiful display.

This was another stall packed to the brim with gorgeous vintage fabrics  - Sal's Snippits, lots of cotton feedsacks.

You can find Sal here - go and have a look!!!

I bought a few bits and pieces at the fair.  I got some gorgeous bundles of cotton lace and some Liberty fabric pieces from Hardaker and Pope

 and a lovely little brooch.

I really enjoyed the fair and will be keeping an eye out for the next one!!

EDIT - OMG I forgot to mention the coffee and homemade cake that I had!!  Served in a lovely china teacup and a slice of very dark chocolate cake - yum!!!!
