Back to the.....


I am currently sitting in the lounge at Fiji airport ready to go back in time and back to the UK after an amazing couple of weeks being pampered, being lazy, adventuring underwater, exploring and helping out at the premier of my husbands latest film Bula Quo (a film he produced last year in Fiji hence us being here again this year!)

We set off today, overnight in Korea and land back in the UK tomorrow! Cannot wait for the jet-lag !

Straight back into vintage life though with the lovely Vintage at Farnham Maltings on Sunday, pick up more stock ( and my beautiful pooch ) from my parents who have been brilliant as looked after everything at vintage land for me! Then back to do the fabulous Wealden Times Midsummer Fair.

A quick turnaround and up to Birmingham for the week and the BBC Good Food Show where we will be in the Great British Bake Off village.... First time there so fingers crossed!

Right, the flight has been called so off I go into the past...... I shall be posting later in the week with some ticket offers as freebies!

Bye for now.... Xxx

May the Fouth....

...Be with You!

(well almost....but i love the gag!)

So lots has happened since my last posting....many great events, a new venture and an amazing holiday to look forward to!

First up last weekend was the excellent 'Festival of Vintage' at York Racecourse. A lovely event with some amazing outfits to view, cars to drool over and music to boogie to.

Here is a picture of a gorgeous couple who bought my Picnic Case....

Cannot wait to be back next year.......

With all these amazing events i needed to stock up so off on another adventure with my Dad up to Barnard Castle and a new auction... a little more refined affair than i am used to - but got some lovely new stock....plus had lunch with this chap on our way back......in North Yorkshire!!!

He was a bit grumpy though.....altogether now......He had the hump!!

So onto the weeks ahead.....next saturday i am jetting off to the paradise island that is Fiji - courtesy of my hardworking husband who has to go back to finish off the film he has been working on for the past year! (Bula Quo for any of you Status Quo fans out there - released in the UK in July starring the legendary Quo! www.bulaquo.com)
Thanks Tim!!

Straight back to it on  my return - although i am sad to miss the Village Vintage in Plumpton i shall be back and hopefully wide awake for Vintage at Farnham Maltings. Then straight onto Wealden Times Midsummer Fair and a rush up to Birmingham for the BBC Good Food Show !
Then round off June with  BIG Vintage Fayre at Hedingham Castle!

The next great news is that as of Tuesday/Wednesday i shall have a space in the Halstead Antiques Centre

I will have a huge selection of China, homewares, Linens, 50's kitchenalia and gifts on display at my usual great prices!!
