Preparations For The Fair

Hesta Nesta

The final preparations for The Northampton Vintage Fair are underway with less than two weeks to go. The sellers are sorting out their lovely vintage stock to bring along. Jo from Hesta Nesta has sent us this tantalising glimpse of some of her lovely wares.


Vintage Wants
Many of the sellers are busy crafting and sewing ready to bring along gorgeous vintage inspired hand made goodies. Deb from Vintage Wants has made these lovely hand stamped linen ribbons and pretty gift boxes.

More Vintage Wants 
We have been busy sorting out decorations for the fair. This week we bought some very battered old Ladybird books and we have been taking them apart to re-use the lovely illustrations. They make lovely colourful bunting that will look great decorating the hall on the 19th.I first saw this idea on the lovely Joshy and Belle blog before Christmas but have seen it on a few other blogs since.I think it is a great way of sharing the nostalgic pictures many of us remember from our childhood rather than throwing away the tatty old books.
