Just a perfect day...

Hand~made brooch purchased from Viv at Hen's Teeth just as we were all packing up for the day at The Cotswolds Vintage Fair...it seemed very appropriate!

I don't think any of us were anticipating the number of visitors that found their way to our village hall in the Cotswolds countryside, but I am so grateful that they did ~ a big thank you to each an every one of you that came and supported us and made purchases!

The venue was a picture of vintage loveliness ~ every which way you turned was a fresh display of unique goodies from the past mixed in with beautiful hand~made treasures from our talented stallholders. Truly amazing...

Hand~made china label from Rosie's Armoire.

My thanks to all of the stallholders for taking part and making it such a unique event! Lots more pictures taken on the day can be seen at thecotswoldsvintagefair.blogspot.com.

I am inspired to make the next one even better ~ watch this space...
