Stall ready

With an empty house (empty of people, that is, not things....) and my work just about finished, I spent a happy couple of hours getting my stall ready for Sunday. According to the organiser instructions,  I had to specify the sort of things I would be selling, so there are not too many duplicates, and I chose children's vintage and things which might appeal to teenagers. This is my selection of purses and accessories (above). 

A stack of tins....and then it got too dark  for iPhone shots....

That's better, let there be light. It is soooo grey this afternoon, pearly grey rather than a really horrible murky grey, but I still don't like it.

Miniature tea sets, bricks and toy dogs, a tiny sewing machine in working order. The floral fabric on the cushion is really cheery. 

                    Beautiful piano shawl

Blankets, shoes and nursery chairs. A pink cot, and plenty more. 

The vintage and handmade sale takes place this Sunday, 11am - 4pm in the Victoria Hall, Oundle, Northants. Admission free. Tea and cakes on sale. 


  1. Have a great time, hope you come back with a much lighter load! Ada :)

    1. Thanks Ada. I'm just not sure about 'specialising' I really prefer to take lots of different things, but we'll see. I do know that I'll enjoy a Sunday spent amongst vintage stalls, and a chance to chat to my friend Lucy who is also having a stand.

  2. Hello from central Florida - so glad to have found your blog. Hope you have a fun and successful weekend! -- Jan

  3. It all looks lovely, I especially like the sewing machine, I used to have one as a child, It must be a little tricky choosing items for a certain genre but I think you have managed it beautifully
    Good Luck
