Crafty Vintage at Backridge Farm.

On Saturday I spent a good few hours perusing the treasures at a Crafty Vintage event at the lovely Backridge Farm near Waddington in the rural ribble valley. The farmย  has its own cozy restaurant and numerous local independant shops housed in its outbuildings. An old barn brimmed full of vintage and home made delights complimented the atmosphere perfectly.

I actually got organised this wknd and started my Christmas Present Shopping. I know its early but……..what better place to start!!
I found gorgeous gifts from Little Owl by Hazel Lyon,ย ย  Nancys Craft Boutique and Realicoul who all had delightful stalls at the fair.:)

So I rescued these kittens ~ purrfect prezzies from Nancys Craft Boutique.

And of course I had to treat myself a little bit too. Two very chicย  little handbags for ยฃ5…….. just made to dance round. Tee Hee ๐Ÿ™‚

A Vintage Afternoon.

Saturday afternoon I met up with a friend for a brew, a natter and a scout round a vintage fair. The Chic Vintage Fair was held in the St Marys Centre in Clitheroe and was packed to the rafters with glorious vintage homewares,clothing and collectables. Its always fun mooching round these types of events as you often spot something that reminds you of your childhood. I get ridiculously nostalgic when I glance upon a slideshow View Finder or a Mr Frosty slush maker!
And you also come accross unique gift ideas when people get crafty with their vintage. ๐Ÿ™‚

After the fair my friend and I went to the Exchange Coffee Company for a brew. She was short on time so after she left for home I couldn’t resist on going back and buying a string of pearls for a friends birthday and this beauty for my bedroom.

I love this teacup covered in cath kidston fabric and lace. ๐Ÿ™‚

Then as I ambled home I couldn’t resist bobbing into Callooh Callay on Moor lane for a nosy in the Curiousity shop upstairs.

Teacup Treats. :)

Although I havn’t done any fairs recently I have still been looking out for teacup treasures. ๐Ÿ™‚

At the wknd I quickly bobbed into a gorgeous Crafty Vintage Fair at the st Marys centre ( inbetween bridesmaid dress fittings and
bridesmaid hair do practices!) and was quickly confronted by these beauties that caught my eye. First off a lovelyย  floral trio with no markings to say who made it but pretty all the same.

image

Then I spied another delightful trio. This elegant pale green and white and gold pattened teacup, saucer and side plate are made by Royal Vale. I love the colours. ๐Ÿ™‚

image

Of course another great place to find Teacups are Charity Shops. Sometimes you can be really lucky and bag a bargain and other times they might guess there are crazy teacup ladies in town and hoist the prices up. ( I’m one of them by the way!) Unfortunately I do find it almost impossible to resist a ravishingly retro teacup such as this one. I think my mum had the set this came from in the 70’s. ๐Ÿ™‚ Its called Delphine.

image

Today walking home from work ( which does mean passing an abundence of charity shops) , I spotted this rather lovely pale rose teacup trio in Oxfam. I love the pretty scalloped shape of the cup. ๐Ÿ™‚

image

Last but not least I found a stunning set of these white and gold Royal Vale teacups & saucers. I really think these beauties will make adorable christmas candles. What do you think?

image

So some of these teacup treats I shall keep and some I shall turn into trinket stands and candles. I suspect I may find even more at the weekend as I believe there is yet another Vintage fair on in Clitheroe. Teacup Heaven!

Crafty Vintage Fair.

Today I took my tea cups along to the Crafty Vintage fair at the st Marys centre in my home town of Clitheroe. Crafty Vintage fairs are held here on the last saturday of every month. Here are a few snaps I took of some treasures on sale. I ended up buying several birthday gifts and some treats for myself. Couldn’t resist. ๐Ÿ˜€
