York vintage fair & clothes swap

On Saturday I went to another vintage fair in York, this one was in the lovely setting of St. Williams College round by the Minster. It was such a lovely sunny day it really lifted my spirits, or maybe that was the delicious little snack I had beforehand at the Attic above Harlequin!

There were some quite nice stalls at the fair. I took some clothes so that I could take part in the clothes swap, there wasn't a huge amount that appealed to me for swapping as items to wear but I picked up a few tops with groovy fabric so that I can chop them up to recycle. 
I didn't use all my clothes swap tokens so they will carry forward to the next event.

There was a small selection of vintage fabric for sale and I purchased these 2 sugary pink flowery pieces.

Love all your new fabrics, personally I'm not a huge fan of pink but doesn't it go so well with grey!
Lovely to see York, I'm definitely a big fan of it, it's been way too long since I've been there.

You know I'm not a huge fan of pink either but I tend to make things with it that seem to sell and I do quite like grey pink & chocolate pink combinations.
York is a place I never get fed up with, if ever you are going I'll point you in the right direction for good cafes, wool & fabric!
