|A VINTAGE AFFAIR FACEBOOK|
We had such a great day foraging round the Vintage Village at Stockport yesterday.
Our trader friends came up trumps with treasures that they knew we would love and some surprise ones as well. Pat and Matthew at A Vintage Affair had put my name on this quirky chappy with his retractable tape measure tail and a hole in the top of his nose for a pair of embroidery scissors.

We also picked up an Isle of Wight fan for my menopausal flushing mate and this poodle tin from them which I will use to keep the wooden cotton reels in that Gail at Essentially Eagle Vintage gave me for my crafting.

The autograph book, again from A Vintage Affair (£1) has such a story to tell. It belonged to a couple who lived in Canada and moved to England. There friends have written little poems and good wishes in it.
I'm thinking of making the cigarette album into a display unit. Watch this space.
This magazine rack has been made from a couple of table mats, wood and plastic thread. Its so sweet.
Gail also sourced this Vernon Ward print for me to add to the collection in my bathroom.
I had put in a request for some wall hanging plates to give our garden a mediteranean feel. Thanks Gail they are perfect.
These quality Empire linen pillowcases were a snip at £6 for the pair off Anne at The Side Room. We already have some similar and they wash beautifully.
I wasn't looking for any clothes as my wardrobe is bursting at the seams but when Alex of Aspidistra Vintage showed me this St. Michaels gorgette frock it had to come home. Its really pretty.

Mr Dapper Chap didn't come home empty handed either. This St.Michael's wool jacket could have been tailor made for him, it fits so well. He spotted it in 20th Century Stores and as always Alan had it on at a really good price £35. Didn't he do well.
While we were in 20th Century Stores chatting to the lovely Sarah of Tin Trunk I spotted this little 1920's leather bound photograph frame from her own collection and brought that home too along with the miniature tin frame.
All in all a great day. We missed the May and June events so it was fantastic to catch up with everyone, have lots of banter, listen to the music and relax with a bit of lunch and coffee and cake.
Roll on August when we can do it all again.
I don't know why my pics are all over the show sorry
Technology and me don't get on well
