Tomorrow's Fair In Northampton & A Haircut

Not Vintage But Very Eye-Catching

Yesterday I made a last minute appointment to have my hair cut, this very stylish Vespa was resting inside the salon. The seat is bespoke and made of hide, all in all quite stunning. 40 minutes later and with much shortened hair I headed home to complete the last bits of preparation for Saturdays fair in Northampton.

Ciao To Vintage Lovers In Italy

The fair is starting at 12 noon and we are really pleased because the weather is looking good for tomorrow. The fair is taking place in the parish centre, there will be 25 stalls selling original vintage wares and handmade items made from vintage fabrics or inspired by vintage designs. 

Saturday 10th March 12pm-4pm

Linens, china, kitchenalia, costume jewellery, prints, fabrics, old toys, books and ephemera from the 30s-50s always feature strongly on the stands. As usual tea and homemade cakes will be served throughout the fair, and the period music helps to create a very nostalgic ambience. 

The Fair Is In The Parish Centre Behind St Matthew's

If you are travelling to the fair from the town centre you will pass the landmark White Elephant pub which sits at a corner of the Old Racecourse Park.

Our stall holders will be arriving several hours before the fair starts to set up their lovely displays which are always so colourful. The rooms will look fabulous once done but the hour before is hectic with people criss-crossing as the fair takes shape, the Green & Blacks chocolates are for our stall holders to help revive energy!

Green & Blacks, Like Kendal Mint-Cake But Nicer!

We hope you all have a safe journey to the fair and that you return home happy with your vintage finds.
I wil be bringing along the floral print by Byatt, I picked it up in a small shop in Kettering earlier this week and spent several hours tidying it up. I will bring it along tomorrow but will happy if it stays with me and does not find its way to a new home.

Best wishes and see you at the fair.
