Had a fabulous time this weekend at the Ipswich Maritime Festival,held each year on the waterfront of this Suffolk town. I shared a stall with a group of friends,which is always more fun than flying solo. The fact that we were displaying our wares under 2 gazebos gave an opportunity to display my work in different ways and seemed to prove popular.

Some odd items for sale including these trays of succulents which made for a great photo opportunity …..as did the surrounding dockside buildings….in various states of disrepair.

And here’s to doing it all again next year!…..

Fine day at The ( no longer a ) Secret Vintage Fair.

Yesterday me and my Vintage Attitude had a stall at The Secret Vintage Fair. The location of the fair is only revealed a couple of weeks before the day so you never really know what you are signing up to but on past experience I know they are well attended and always in a fabulous building. The last one was in the Norman castle here in Colchester…you can’t get more vintage than that eh?

So this was me…right at the front and centre of The Masonic Hall in Ipswich.

Really was a lovely day at the fair and I sold lots of dresses,met lovely people and got great feedback,all of which gives me encouragement and much needed support to continue “putting my soul on display”…..yes that’s how it feels when you put your creations on sale.
….oh and of course I bought a couple of bits myself…..well it would be rude not to!
