Vintage and Handmade Textile Fair - Preview

I was quite relieved to see the rain today because I had earmarked this day to do a mock up of my stall for this weekend.  I am finding it very hard to be indoors in this wonderful weather so the drizzle was perfect (although the sun was out again in the afternoon).

The venue is a new one for all of us and the space I have is different, being 2 tables in an L shape so I thought it best to practise how  to set it up.  I find it a good idea to have a dummy run a few days beforehand rather than try and make it work at 7.30am on the day!!!

It also helps me to see if there are any 'holes' in my stock and what, if anything, I need to add to make the stall look nice.

So, for your eyes only, a little preview.

As well as my usual fabrics and haberdashery I shall be taking a rail of vintage clothes along too.

The weather forecast is for sunny weather so there will be teas out in the courtyard with more stalls.  Pop on a summer frock and come along. Pin It
