Thank you to you all for your good wishes for the Antiques Fair, and thank you to everyone to reads this blog and bought from me over the weekend. After Friday's mega purchases I behaved myself quite well, and had plenty of customers yesterday which was good. Today was a peculiar day and although there were plenty of people, sales were very slow until an hour before packing up time. And in that last hour I did a normal daysworth of sales, so was able to come home happy and smiling, albeit tired. I'm pleased to tell you both the gramophone and the lovely white cutwork cloth sold - each going to a "good home"!
What I can never understand is how I manage to load everything in the car on a Thursday afternoon, sell some quite large items and then be unable to get everything in the car on Sunday evening at the end of the Fair. I know I bought plenty, but I brought all that home yesterday!
I met a lovely lady called Louise this afternoon. She and her friend, whose name I didn't find out, bought a few items from me and then Louise told me she has read my blog. I was thrilled to meet someone who recognised me from my blog. Whether it was my business card, or whether Niki told her where to find me I'm not sure, but either way it was a pleasure to meet them both. And isn't it a small world. For the first 6 years of my life I lived in Shirley, near Solihull, and her friend did too - and she knows Northampton well. If you read my blog regularly you'll know that is my home town.
No photos tonight, but we'll see what the coming week brings.
