We had back-to-back Fairs this weekend, one local - the other Malvern. We went to bed early, but unfortunately my Montelukast tablet made my heart rate rise considerably - and for about 3 hours I couldn't get to sleep as my heart was going pitty-pat! (It's a side-effect of the medication). So I was still awake just before midnight and I did NOT want to get up at 3 a.m. when the alarm went off! Ah well, I lived to tell the tale but of course, am still very tired today. I treated myself to a plant from this stall - which I have bought from regularly. I nearly bought an Echinacea (see plants at front edge of table - the colour I liked was the shorter purply pink half way along). THEN I saw this Scabious (below) and that was it as far as I was concerned!
I couldn't resist - Scabiosa "Barocca".
We each took it in turns to have a "quick wander" round the other stalls, but it's impossible to sell AND buy and I didn't really need any more stock unless it was something special at the right price. I spotted this patchwork quilt (£175) and thought it deserved a photo.
A stall specialising in garden furniture.
Three French hens! I liked this : )
Near to our stall was one with a huge heap of - clothing and bits of material, which started off at £3 per piece. Later in the day it was £1 per piece - I had a look but there was nothing that screamed buy me and I wasn't dedicated enough to get to the bottom of the pile. Later still, it was FREE, which encouraged me to go and look and I got a couple of bits of curtaining (one is a Sanderson fabric), the 100% cotton single duvet cover below, and above, this size 16 House of Fraser skirt - Price tags still on - originally £70, then half price at £45 and then it ended up with the nearby lady, in a field . . . I liked it and decided once I have lost the rest of the steroid weight (2 lbs gone already), this will fit me . . .
We have had this lovely French "Onion" port lamp from a ship for over a year now. I have always been worried about the glass getting broken (now we don't have a Unit to display it in) and so I have decided I am now keeping in - better having it whole and unsold than broken and unsold!!
These lovely copper moulds were originally mine, then I decided to declutter and put them out for sale, but no buyers, so now they are back on the dresser. So much for downsizing!
