Back to Vintage and a weekend fair
I am really back into Vintage and although again should not be making, with a workman messing around in the utility room had to do something! Well that is my excuse. A bag, simple design, made in natural linen with lace from my stash box (have no idea where I got it from) Vintage wording embroidered onto pale rose print linen and edged again with crochet lace trim from my bits and bobs box. Faux silk ribbon bow, love this ribbon and stronger than the silk version. Button from MIL's tin.
Measures approx 9" X 9" with a 26" strap. Lined with a pocket and tied together with more of the faux silk ribbon.
'Liphook Village Market'
Started off with this event this time last year and did well, April good, June and September dire sales = £0, so my expectations where not high. However, as I did my Inventory sale and no new stock did okish. My main aim was to move the old stock. Have one more event to do at Headley on 28/11 and will do the same. I know I have made some new things for Christmas but would rather shift old stock and keep the new on my website. Sadly this will be my last Liphook event unless I want to have another sale next year. It has changed from an Artisan fair to a village market and not sure that a large fruit and veg stall mixes with handmade very well, plus allowing in 'Hallo Vera' now, certainly not handmade.
Check out the other stalls at Lucy Blossom Crafts
Same place and time next week for more tales of daring do, lol
