Once more we were raring to go! All over the country antiques were being unpacked again - at Wetherby, Doncaster, Lincoln and Newark. They sound like stops on a tedious train journey south, unless you are in the know or is it "in the loop"?
As usual my aim was to sniff out some needlework and some objects full of charm, with a bit of history thrown in.
Hmm...Brentford Nylons, circa 1970...not quite my style.
It was a real treat to enter this emporium of all things vintage, mostly textiles, and to meet one of the lovely proprietors, BusyLizzie, AKA The Washerwoman, organiser of Vintage Fairs and tireless gatherer of antique clothing and household decorations, all for sale and attracting much attention here at Newark Showground.
Smaller pieces & embroideries were quite hard to find this week, but we arrived home from our gallivanting with a modest collection.
I loved the "Mending Day" picture frame, though when I took a closer look, it seemed a little sinister. No time to ponder that now...
