Treasures from the Swinderby Fair

I popped along to the Swinderby Fair yesterday.
Brrrrr, it was very cold.
All the stalls were outside too.
Got layered up like the Michelin man.
Well prepared.
A bit disappointed though.
Lots of people elbowing their way in to the front of the stalls
Some lovely goodies but very expensive.
Mr Frenchmen was there.
With his lovely stuff.
But otherwise, not much of my thing.
Came away with a very tiny haul of goodies …..
….. but pleased.
My total haul …..
….. acres of this beautiful 1930’s French fabric.
Can you tell I am pleased with this?
An etched glass brooch (will go perfectly on a tag picture)
 A selection of vintage cards …..
A card loaded with adorable pink ribbon.
A length of linen pom pom trim.
And a partridge in a pear tree dinky box of boot buttons.
Isn't this so sweet?
A small haul yes, but the best things come in small packages ...
... and one has to save ones self for the bumper fairs next month.
Enjoy your Tuesday
