This weekend I have been busy making lists and preparing for the Fair. The action is taking place at the Cheese and Grain in Frome. The doors open for customers at 9am and the fair closes at 3pm. There have been a few last minute changes to the stall holders, but I am hoping that there will be no more cancellations now as I have a very busy week! Several stallholders have been doing "mock-up" stalls over the weekend. Tracy has been hard at work perfecting the layout on her stall.... Sarah D has been busy too, hers is the picture at the top of the page.
I have been putting together 2 rails of my very best 40's dresses, 50's duster coats and some divine vintage lambswool and cashmere knitwear. The postcard (above) is part of a collection of ephemera that I have earmarked for the fair. Mr W. is taking along some Eastern European mangle cloths, and some of his best selling French cockle baskets (if we can squeeze them in the van!)
Clare has some stunning new designs which I am looking forward to seeing, and Niki has been putting together some delicious treasures to bring to the fair.
