... Unbelievably the time has whizzed round and the V&H Fair at Rangeworthy, organised by Michele and Jayne, takes place this coming Saturday, 22 November.
I'm madly pricing and sorting and packing, and would love to show you what I'll be taking, but as I now drive home from Dairy House in the dark there's no opportunity to take photos in good light. However, among the list of goodies are some small bundles of vaguely colour-coordinated fabrics tied up with red and white butcher's string (the string is red and white, not the butcher!), which are suitable for small craft projects, patchwork, appliqué etc. I've also sorted (to a degree) the mountain of vintage and antique lace, and have filled some cellophane bags with a mix of lengths and pieces for those of you who enjoy crafting with lace. I've sold one or two at DH already and they seem to be quite popular, so I'm hoping they'll go well at the Fair. There will be individual lengths for you to rummage through as well.
Fabric covered boxes and drawers, larger fabric lengths, buttons, sewing notions, threads, ribbons, cottons, hankies, lace collars and cuffs, vintage curtains, eiderdowns, damask and embroidered tablecloths, napkins, towels, a few cups & saucers, dishes and other non-textile bits and pieces ... the list goes on. It's an exceedingly good thing that I changed my car a few weeks ago. At least I'll be able to fit it all in, even if I can't fit it on my stall at the Fair!!!!
For those of you who follow Niki's blog and website and love her gorgeous handmade dolls, there's a special treat in store. Niki has made one of her fabulous large rag dolls especially for me to take to the Fair. I have a super little rush-seated chair on which I shall sit her, centre stage!
I also plan to take a few copies of Sky on My Doorstep the book I published through Blurb earlier in the year.
After this Fair blogging will never be the same again! There will be so many friendships cemented 'face-to-face'. Fingers crossed for a good turnout of blogger and other shoppers. It sounds as if there are going to be some wonderful ideas for Christmas presents and I think we're now close enough to 25 December to be able to mention the word, don't you?
Hope to see you there!
