The Spring Vintage Bazaar, Frome.

Just had to check that I have enough stock to display on my stall at the Spring Vintage Bazaar, Frome on Saturday...
Yes, think there's enough there! 
I've been collecting some special items for a while now and have amassed a nice variety...

Here's a closer look....

Lots of lovely vintage details...

A print of local landmark - Glastonbury Tor.

Lots more will be coming besides...
Including some handmade items that I've not shown previously on my blog....
A vintage hand worked tapestry of a cottage and garden, which I've combined with some lovely old Sanderson fabrics to make a cushion. 

The back.
Another cushion with hand worked tapestry panel, this one featuring a bowl of anemones, which I've surrounded with a variety of vintage floral fabrics and unusual hand embroidery. 

The back.
This is Betty Blossom, one of my special one-of-a-kind handmade fairies. I bought the c1930's embroidered fabric which I've used for her skirt, whilst in Guernsey last month. 

I've been covering various little boxes in antique papers to present a variety of vintage brooches. 

These ones hold handmade brooches, which I created from the ends of old wooden cotton reels, with a brooch bar on the back. 

Other boxes contain collections of vintage buttons or sequins. 
Always a very special fair - Hope to see you there!
