Sunny Saturday Vintage Fair

Yesterday I had a stall at the Red Rose Vintage Fair in Bexhill. It was an amazing summers day and lots of people stopped by to check out all the vintage goodies on offer.

I sold a real mixture of items including a few things I'd had for a while and thought might be destined for the bargain basket. It just goes to show I need to be patient - something I'm not very good at.

I also tried out selling some cute jam jars that I made up with pretty doilies and candy ribbons. They went down a storm. 

Small side plates were a hit as well.

Classic Vintage Penguin Books

A while ago I was having a rummage in the loft at my mums house and came across a little stash of classic vintage Penguin books.  Luckily my mum had forgotten they were there and was more than happy for me to give them a new home.  Since then I've managed to gather a few more to add to the ever expanding shelf.

Each of the different colours represents a genre.

The orange books, that we're probably most familiar with, are fiction.

The green books are crime.
I'm very chuffed to have found a book with the word 'vintage' in the title.

Blue is biographies and memoirs.

Pink is travel and adventure.

I have yet to find some in classic purple - essays, grey - world affairs, which I have never seen before and red - drama.  I expect there were less of these printed so are much harder to find.

Vintage Bank Holiday In Bexhill on Sea

Today I had a stall at a vintage fair in Bexhill on Sea.  It was held in a great location at a hotel over looking the sea.  The day started as a typical Bank Holiday, grey and cloudy but it didn't stop plenty of people stopping by. Eventually the sun did put in an appearance to finish everything off nicely.

I sold lots of pretty plates and glasses and was almost cleared out of vintage table linen.

Lots of people also took a trip down memory lane, remembering how their grandmas used to give them jelly in sundae glasses, not forgetting Angel Delight with sprinkles on top.

This pretty coffee set also attracted a lot of attention.

I displayed all my trio sets on shelves and popped some lilac from the garden into a tea cup as a finishing touch. 
(It smelt nice too)

My next stall will be on 26th May with Red Rose Vintage Fairs, also in Bexhill on Sea.
