Lymington’s Bows & Braces Vintage Fair

This past weekend I headed down to the New Forest for the Bow’s and Braces Vintage Fair in Lymington.

Colourful kitchenalia and some Homemaker plates. I fell in love with this design when I first became interested in vintage and antiques as a 12 year old. And I still love it!

Bows and Braces have another fair at the end of November. And I’ll hopefully be joining them again next year.
