Maresfield Village Fete & Vintage at Farnham Maltings + a Giveaway.

Right on cue the weather is becoming more and more erratic, it's because our local village fete is being held this bank holiday Monday 27th May.

The Village of Maresfield East Sussex
Last year my stall nearly blew away the wind was so bad. Such a shame as so much effort goes into making the event a success. As always there will be live music, local produce stalls, a rather splendid plant stall that is usually obscured by garden enthusiasts, live arena displays and of course a novelty dog show. I will be there selling off my stock of vintage and vintage inspired clothing at truly bargain prices, as well as my usual array of beautiful and stylish objects including pictures, ceramics and accessories. If you have time pop along, say hello and buy something. It's all in a good cause. The fete starts at 12 noon. Be there or be square.

Sunday week, 2nd June I will be plying my wares at a fabulous Vintage event at Farnham Maltings in Surrey.

Countdown to Vintage 2013...
Farnham Maltings’ vintage festival is back for it’s third year offering plenty of opportunities to purchase inspiring treasures. For visitors in search of a fashionable find there is a choice of stallholders spanning the decades and showcasing wonderful collections. Homewares, jewellery, furniture, records and old movie posters are just a few of the exhibitors in our eclectic emporium.
The programme has something for everyone; so get thrifty in a free craft workshop, listen to live music and join us for a day of fun!

This will probably be the last ever pure vintage foray for me as I intend to rethink where my passions and interests lie and change tack. I adore vintage, but buying and selling items, even in the small way that I have, has lost it's sparkle for me. Although I couldn't really ever give up on it completely, I feel major changes are in store. More of that later.

Lastly a small giveaway. Part of my package as a stall holder at the Farnham event is two complimentary tickets, such a lovely word complimentary, almost as nice as upgrade. Anyway I digress, I have given one ticket to a chum who is coming but I thought it might be nice to offer the other ticket as a prize on this blog. All you need to do is leave a comment on my blog or join as a new follower and I will pop your name into the hat. I will announce the winner next Friday. I'm planning on leaving the ticket on the door for the winner. Good luck.


  1. Would love to visit Farnham where my husband went to school, but we are off on a bit of a break.
    Dying to know what new changes are in store for you.

    1. Have a nice break Rosemary. I will be posting my plans in a few weeks time.

  2. Are you going to write a novel like Virginia, start painting like Vanessa or..?

    1. Nothing as exciting as that I'm afraid. I think a return to my first love, painting, will have to wait until i retire, which is a little way off yet :)
      Although I'm planning a lot more creative activity.
