Home again, home again, Jiggety jig ...

No photos of my little corner today, but as you can see from these photos, it was more or less a free-for-all, so attractive displays weren't really the order of the day. I dont think she is in the photo, but at the far end of the hall the stage is the regular spot for Liz van Hasselt at all the textile fairs at Honiton, this one being no exception.


There were over 20 of us with pitches, and the morning brought what seemed like hundreds of people in with their sou'westers and umbrellas, but by late morning the sun came streaming through the doors and windows and even more holiday-makers and Honiton residents came in.

I think we all had a good day and the plan is to hold further Rag Markets. However, I think it has been agreed that perhaps 2 per year is the maximum - possibly February/March and then again in August. There were certainly enough people around today to make us think that August is a good time for such an event.


That's Linda Clift waving to me across the hall. Her website is listed in my sidebar. She sells amazing quilts and her knowledge knows no bounds.

I now plan to sit and do very little for the rest of the evening having had to set my alarm for 5.30 this morning!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, one and all.

Wow, I so wish I was there, rummaging through the stalls...
From the photos it seems that everyone was enjoying themselves!
Have a good rest...

Looks great Sue. Wish I could have been there but mum was not well enough to look after my two while I had a rummage. I shall be there on Tuesday though, you?

It looks like an absolute treasure trove!

The free for all very much reminds me of the jumble sales I used to go too! These rag sales look really good fun, I just wonder whether they hold any around this area? x

I would love to have been there to meet you and Liz and to dive into the vintage treasures...
I hope our little fair in November will be as well attended!
