We had such a wonderful time at Warwickshire Exhibition Centre last Sunday! It was the first time I had been and I was very impressed with the space and creative table displays. It was hard not to get tempted by some of the goodies on the stalls as I was there to make money not spend it, but still treated myself to a lovely hand knitted top which was a ridiculously good deal.
Along with my pincushion cups and hair clips, Mr Mew had brought along a few of his handmade wooden toys and a couple of light boxes. We had also made some cute bird feeders which proved to be rather popular!
As well as selling our beloved crafts, I also sang some Christmas tunes and vintage songs to get everyone in the mood. I nearly laughed out loud when the most adorable little tot you have ever seen started jigging around like a dashboard hula girl to Santa Claus is Coming to Town! It was quite chilly, but adrenaline kept me reasonably warm for the most part and only my toes seemed to suffer the feeling of loss of life. I wore a wonderful new dress that I am utterly thrilled with, but cannot reveal where I got it as of yet!
In the end I sold 2 pincushion cups (My favourite one (the rabbit in lettuce leaves) and a bird in a nest of pins, a pincushion shoe, 3 pincushion corsages and 3 bird feeders so not bad at all! Next up is a vintage and crafts fair at Hatton Park Hall THIS Sunday (9th Dec) where I will be singing and selling some of my vintage clothing collection! The fun never ends!
Mum and I had a great time at the show and it was lovely to meet you. As the, now, proud owner of the bunny pin cushion I can confirm that it is being used every day when I sew my brooches and is looking very perky indeed. The lettuce leaves are ideal for the needles. Thanks so much. Your display was wonderful and so full of life and colour.
Love Val 🙂
I am so pleased! He was my absolute favourite and Im so glad he went to a good home. We had a fabulous time ourselves and will hopefully be back next year! x
Beautiful set-up! So glad to hear that you did well at the fair.
Thank you! X
