milton keynes handmade and vintage extravaganza

What a weekend! We headed off for our first time selling at the Milton Keynes Handmade and Vintage Extravaganza. With 120 stalls set up in the shopping centre, it was the busiest fair I’ve ever attended, and a lot of fun.

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.
