Found last week ...

... and coming to the next fairs

Glass bowl in a wonderful blue shade and vintage brooches that I have mounted on cards.

I love the ship one and may have to 'borrow' it for a while.

Classy cream ladies Hartmann case complete with keys.  Lovely clean interior lining and pockets.   Pair of gorgeous Axminster wool rosy rugs. 

Lined sewing basket (it did have a quilted cover but it was so badly moth eaten and frayed that sadly I had to remove it)

Pristine men's white collars

Crinoline lady tea cosy

Super, puffy quilted cosy (morning tea would still be hot at lunchtime with this one!)

Georgian, ebonised wig or hat stand

And a very colourful, retro pushchair!

Looking forward to Sherborne Antiques fair and Bridport Vintage Market this weekend ...

Hello Marina:
You really do have a good 'eye' for both spotting attractive, and desirable, items as well as for displaying them in such an interesting way. We are certain that all of these items will sell very quickly. Your regular customers must look forward to seeing your stand at fairs.

The brooches are lovely, the pushchair is great......perhaps I need some dollies to push around in it....or just use the cats?!

Hello Marina
I am just catching up with all the blogs that I have missed reading over the past six weeks.
Your latest finds are a good mix of interesting items that are sure to find new homes very quickly. I am certain Chester will be off to pastures new very soon as he is such a little cutie... my dog from childhood was called Chester, he looked like the Andrex puppy!
I hope all is well with you and that you have had a lovely summer.

Ooooh! it's not fair that i cannot attend your store in person - instead I have to enjoy the lovelies from all the way Downunder! I loooove all your wares - so carefully selected with a discerning eye for the scrumptious! That green tea cosy is simply "To die for..." sigh.... :-)

Gorgeous finds, I LOVE the rugs, the teacosies and your fantastic brooches on card.

I have passed you the versatile blogger award although I see that you have already been graced with it:)

Have a great day, Tam x
