What a nice day I have had.
My first day at the 'Magpies and I' vintage and craft fair. It was lovely.
Late start, arrived at 10.30 so plenty of time to let Mr Betty pamper me this morn. Set up by 11.00. The size of the stall took me by surprise, it was really spacious. I didn't have enough stock in all honesty but it was nice to have it all spaced out for a change.
I forgot quite a bit of my craft stuff but I was not too worried about that.
The people in the surrounding stalls were so friendly.
I had visits from Jane of Teawagon Tales and we had a great chat. Truth be told, she has really inspired me to carry on with what I am doing and what I want to be doing so thanks for coming to say Hi.
I also got to have a chat with Susie of Old Fashioned Susie fame, she was clutching a healthy stash of vintage fabrics which is always a sign of a successful day ( well it is in my world).
I sold a typewriter to a lovely lady and as soon as I have finished writing this here blog post I am going straight over to her 'The Den at Beechwood' blog to have a good read. Her stuff was absolutely brilliant, cushions in fabby fabric and some pretty handmade bags. Well worth a look!
I have come home to a nice dinner cooked by Mr Betty, Mum was invited too.
I must now show you what was in 'that box'.
Can you flippin believe it?
Mr Betty reads my blog and he has got me a gift from my most expensive wish list of things I can't really afford. What a luckster I am.
I am going to do exactly what I said I would do if I owned this lovely bowl. I am going to fill it with chocolate eggs covered in brightly coloured foil wrappers.
The picture that follows was taken by the Mr and although I look like a reet minga I just have to share it with you.
This pretty much sums up what I will be doing tonight. Me and my furry boy.
Thanks to everyone that supported me today and came to say hi, I will definitely be returning to Altrincham vintage Market in the future. X
