That was a somewhat unexpected break from the blog. I had to make the magazine ready to go to press, and get Jack ready for uni and somewhere in the middle I picked up a nasty bug and spent two days in bed. Anyway, the luggage is all ready for tomorrow, mountains of washing done and boxes packed. I hope they will all fit into our tiny car. I had to go and buy some food today, so I made a small detour to Stamford Antiques Fair, a small local event on the riverside meadows. Sometimes it is disappointing, but today I had such a lovely hour combing the stalls.
I met a great stallholder. We had a good chat, and I bought a few goodies from her, just little things such as a tin of buttons. She had lots of things I would have liked, but no place to put them.
I had to say no to that lovely basket which was brimming with sewing things.
There is nothing nicer than sipping a coffee, while browsing through boxes of bric a brac in a late summer sunshine....
Even if you only have a couple of pounds to spend, you'll always find something that sparks an idea or leads to an interesting chat.
I'll never stop going, even when I'm on a Zimmer....
I did buy the pink stool at the top of the post. It wasn't very sensible really, but it is soooo sweet.
I hope you enjoyed having a browse with me.
