|Tomorrow is the Vintage & Handmade Spring Fair at Chipping Sodbury Town Hall, |
South Gloucestershire, BS37 6AD from 10am - 4.00pm.
Entrance is just £1.00 (children free) & there is plenty of free parking all around the town which has a fabulous High Street filled with independent shops, so make a day of it!
More details here.
|Here's a quick round-up of some of the items I have made especially for the fair, as well as some vintage treasures that will be coming too. I'll start with the vintage items, which have a nostalgic childhood feel to them.|
|A cute 'google-eyed'/ Kewpie type C1930's composition doll with original felt coat.|
|Another 30's Kewpie doll made from plaster - In lovely condition for her age.|
|And an adorable soft toy horse with original saddle and harness.|
|My handmade items include several one-of-a-kind dolls...This is Flora, dressed in vintage Sanderson floral cotton.|
|Unity, who is ready for a Jubilee celebration!|
|I made some greetings cards using photos of the fairy dolls that I took to the Vintage Bazaar last month...|
And I've made another batch of fairies of a similar style for Saturday's fair too.
|Three more fairy folk...|
|This large Guardian Angel doll is Ethereal - Dressed in an antique baby gown.|
|The green one has ribbon violets, which I bought from Christine's lovely shop last summer.|
|Coral damasks, with an oriental embroidered appliqué.|
|And a rich red bag with beautiful rose decoration.|
|There are several small scatter cushions made from rare antique fabrics.|
I love this delicious French floral.
|Antique linen with watercolour-like flowers.|
|And two patchwork cushions made from an assortment of rare French cotton fabrics.|
|Finally I have lots of lavender filled cushions...|
Including the ones I made for the Pretty Nostalgic photo shoot.
|And all these too...|
(My shop will be closed on Saturday whilst I attend the fair.)
