V&H FAIR GOODIES
Well, what a day! The Vintage and Handmade Fair Christmas 2009 was fantastic and I did not come back empty handed. As well as doing some shopping, it was a great opportunity to say hello to fellow bloggers. The selection of items for sale was plentiful and the standard very high!
Miss P came along too and had a fantastic time. She enjoyed chatting away and walking around the stalls with the very sweet Munchkin (Hen), looking at the vintage Christmas baubles & comparing favourite colours.
I had half expected this to be said within 30 minutes of being at the fair: " When are we going?" Instead, after having had lunch at a nearby cafe called the Pink Panther (One of Miss P's favourite cartoons) she asked to go back to the fair again. Music to my ears!
I'd like to thank my lovely husband Alan who took a lot of photos of the fair first thing (3d photos to follow shortly, he is working on them as we speak) and then patiently waited for the rest of the day whilst I had a very good look around! Not a single moan..
