In the meantime, my last Shepton Giant Flea was a great success, although if you open the door to my studio you wouldn't think anything had gone! Lots of lovely bloggers and other friends stopped to say hello, and I gave out plenty of postcards advertising the Vintage Textile and Costume Day.
I've been selling 50-gram packs of buttons for £1. I packed them ready for the Flea and have been selling them in Dairy House since. I don't know that there's anything really exciting among them, but you never know.
You may recall that the Bridport Rag Market took place on 20 February. That was another good day, with lots of jolly company and several blogging visitors. I bought a lovely chunky cardi which needed its own button fix ... not a problem of course, and here it is with its 2"+ octagonal button. I could have done with this thick layer all through the winter at Dairy House but at least I've certainly managed to keep warm over the last couple of weeks!
It's been a treat driving back and forth to Dairy House since the days have been getting longer. Some days I've got home in daylight which has been great. Some evenings I've been later shutting up shop and this sight greeted me as I pulled out of the carpark one evening last week.
