My Life in Photos - Vintage in the Vale

Well, what a success!  You might remember I was lucky enough to be asked to the first Vintage in the Vale event which took place in Trelawnyd Memorial Hall last Saturday.  I had a brilliant time - sold lots and lots, met some fab fellow crafters and lovely customers and consumed lots of tea and cake!  Everyone was delighted with the turn out - they were queueing at the door at 10.00 am - and I (and all the other stall holders, I'm sure) want to send Gillian a huge thank you for organising such a fabulous show.  I do hope she can now relax a bit and basque in the warm glow of a job well done.

I also picked up some great ideas for stall display - something that is often forgotten in the mad few days before a fair.  However I was pleased with my idea for displaying my felt brooches.  I've not been happy with the way I've displayed them previously - and then I suddenly remembered this old frame.  I'd painted it red years ago so all I had to do was cut a piece of mount board to size, cover it with a piece of burlap (stuck on with double sided sticky tape) and pin on my brooches with fancy pins.  It must have hit the spot as I'd just about sold out of brooches by mid afternoon!  Now I'm really looking forward to the next fair - which I believe will be in the spring.


  1. What a fantastic idea for displaying your beautiful little brooches!! So glad you had a fun, successful day!

  2. WOW I am so happy for you. I thought of you yesterday , here weather was very good and often that helps, people don't like to leave the house when it's raining!!!!
    What a great succes that your brooches were sold out so early!!!! they are so lovely!!!
    So take a rest today, drink some tea with another piece of cake and enjoy the memories!!

  3. Your board looks fabulous and so contemporary, as do your brooches, I am not surprised they sold out, they wouldn't look out of place in a high end boutique.

  4. What a fabulous day you had! Love your idea for displaying all those beautiful brooches. Happy they sold out too. Have a great week!

  5. Well done you, glad it went so well.
