Village People

Yesterday (18th June) was Vintage Pixies Vintage and Handmade Gift Fair at Shalford Village Hall near Guildford, Surrey. I honestly wasn't sure what to expect - the heaven's were starting to open and that's the moment you realise you are stuck for the afternoon in this place with these people....... I have never sold at a fair like it! Everyone that came was so lovely and chatty and really appreciated the time and skill in handmade and all credit to Emily (who organised) said well done to who ever put it together!

The other stall holders were (as the sign said) 'fabulous' and it felt like a long lost reunion when finally after months and months of tweeting What Katie Did Next and I finally met!

 Fathers Day cards from moi

 Framed work (including a dinky size family tree) and little bits

 Fab plantable bunting from The Green Gables
Gorgeous hair clips from Pipnstuff



The vintage stands were a treasure trove of spendage - and really tough to control - I bought a beautiful beaded peter pan collar and a pack of vintage cards. Typically, can't remember whats from where so the tip top stands included handmade and vintage Rural Vintage and Knickerbocker Glory. 

A big wave to my neighbour Emily - I didn't manage to get photos from your side but go click on her site! Handmade By Emily

All in all a lovely village hall kinda day! and keep your eyes open for Vintage Pixies other events - I think they are worth the journey.
