The Long Awaited ...

... Buttercross Vintage Market 
in the Somerton Parish Hall is this Saturday 10am to 4pm.

It is always a busy little fair with lots of friendly customers,
interesting stalls and a lovely atmosphere.
Come along and say hello!
 
This unusual set will be making it's debut ...
Not sure if they are playing west country Skittles or American bowling?!
The beautiful frosted glass is in perfect condition.
Pretty glass flower arranging 'frogs' ...
and a gorgeous round mirror, with beautiful flower etched bevelled glass.
How sweet are these teeny little 1930s glass plates ... 
... for a good girl and a good boy!
A bit of diamante bling ...
... and a whole rail of gorgeous winter warming coats and jackets,
in all different, colours, shapes and sizes.
Mohairs and Tweeds
Long and short ...
Blazers and furs ...

with lovely old buttons ...

and decorative touches ...

'Man' tailored ... !


If this one was just a little bit smaller, 
it would be staying at home!

And ... 
what's in the box?
Answer next time!

~ Oh haven't had chance to visit any vintage fairs this year! I seem to need to have a sale on some of my own pieces too! ~ But I wish you a busy bee day, Mrs VJ! I LOVE the coat too! The only problem is when you become a little vintage your self, you can become a little 'Bet Lynch'!!! hehe! would suit my bright and breezy young Top shop daughter though!!! Happy new week lovely YOU! ~ Hugs Maria x

A choice collection there - What is in the box (impatient!)
I use flower frogs for my scissors - very handy things and Bronte uses one for incense - very handy indeed
I also use one for putting in flowers that I have made
Very, very handy!

Best wishes
Jenny
