Unless you have joined the Foreign Legion or been living in a bunker for the last four months you will have heard of the... dare I say it... Vintage & Handmade Fair.
Oh dear..I think I can hear your screams from here!
It has somewhat dominated my life since July and for the majority of the time.. very enjoyably so..other than the recurring dreams where.. the doors open to the public and I turn around to find my stock has vanished... someone has nicked it!! Not convinced there is much of a market for second- hand Cowboys & Custard merchandise!
without complaint or removal of hearing aids... I am most grateful ... but there is one person.. who I really feel deserves some recognition.. for their enduring patience and unconditional support..
I have a feeling I might be walking to the fair on Saturday when he sees this photo!
He has been such a rock to me .... chauffeuring me around all the various towns to put up posters, taking me to dingy dusty emporiums where I have scavenged for materials, listening to my constant drone about my aspirations, expectations and ruminations on the whole business of organising our first event..
He really should be in line for a knighthood.. a small tin medal at least.. but I fear he will have to make do with a bottle of pop and a kiss from me.
If for any reason you have just returned from the Foreign Legion for a weekend's leave.. then do please come along to our first Vintage & Handmade extravaganza.....
There will be lots of familiar and not so familiar and completely unknown faces there.. lots of talented ladies who have slaved over their art to come along and gather under one roof for what I hope is going to be a fantastic day.. a real meeting of the clan!
So.. hop on a bus, take a train.. hire a bike.. climb aboard your skateboard.. bring a friend on a tandem.. or .. drive your car.. to all the fun of the fair!!
Hope to see you Saturday 10. a.m - 4. p.m Rangeworthy Village Hall.. South Glos..!
