Festival of Vintage - Part 2: Purchases

Here's what I bought at the festival:
I have always loved printers hot metal type since using it back in my college days at Leeds so I couldn't resist buying a few letters which of course are pretty expensive these days as we've moved into the digital age:

Staying on a metal theme, this dinky little mini Hovis bread tin (ex bakery), a bit pricey at £5 but I'll really enjoy using it one day when I have an oven hot enough to cook bread!

Ceramics next, saw a lot of Hornsea Pottery, mostly run of the mill Heirloom range and over priced so nothing to tempt me but I did get this hand painted Norwegian plaque for a good price, cheap due to the chip on it but I love the design.

Onto fabric and trimmings, I really had to control my purse. I'm so intrigued as to where the sellers manage to find such brilliant vintage fabric, it has to be said that the stuff in charity shops is just not that exciting when you see what the vintage fabric sellers manage to source.
I bought this groovy piece which is French linen

Below is some vintage Sanderson from a lady I often come across at vintage fairs around York and she now has a website

Went halves with Sally's friend on these French sparkly sequins from Sago Design.

Lovely ribbons

I love these vintage cards & labels I found and I'm sure they will get used in a fabric design

Lastly, two small vintage linens just because they were only 50p each.
Phew, that's it!

The Hovis tin is proving a hit, the lady had lots of them on her stall and you could buy a proper rack thing which sat half a dozen tins in a row which is how I guess the bakeries would use them.

Wow ... that looks like a great sale!! So many things I would like myself - especially the Hovis tin and the cards. Going to a vintage sale myself on Monday but I don't expect to do as well as you.
