Well, what an exhausting 3 days that was ... but I'm not complaining. Luckily, I didn't need to do a raindance as trade day was excellent, Saturday was very good and, although the less said about Sunday the better, I shopped (till I almost dropped) and found endless goodies to go in the Centres and on the website. The wooden box (below) is full of French fabrics. There's loads of lace and other textile goodies but I haven't taken photos yet.
I booked 2 panels of pegboarding for this Fair (it's all put up ready for when they let us in to set up), so I was able to hang a few items and make a bit of a cosy corner. I decided that the time had come to forget about taking kitchenalia and concentrate on the linen, textiles and decorative items ... and to try my hand at draping stuff and making it look more interesting. Not easy first thing in the morning when people are coming round trying to see what you're going to take out of the boxes and bags ... What do you think? Room for improvement to my mind, but I had quite a few nice comments, and one lady peered round the hanging rail and said "Oooh, it's like walking into a little shop" which really made my day.
When I was at Dairy House on Thursday I took photos of all the Cornishware - I didn't realise there was so much. I don't think I'll ever get to add it all to the website, but if there's anything you see on the dresser that you feel you can't live without, then do let me know!
I was hoping to add some more images of the Cornishware but blogger doesn't want to let me upload any more photos. I'll try to add some a little later!
So, back to today ... I've been trying to sort and price the new items but am struggling to stay awake after 3 disturbed nights ... 2 have a link to snoring and the third to barking. I'll say no more other than the fact that we don't have a dog (but I do have a husband!!! ... and he sometimes reads my blog!). Does that make it sound as if Pauley barks? Hope not!
