I made a last minute decision to visit the Festival of Vintage, based on the weather and OH working today. So pleased I braved the showery weather as it was equally as wonderful as last year.
I got to meet some of the ladies who produce the excellent Pretty Nostalgic magazine and I treated myself to a bargain rate subscription, and I got their lovely Home book for signing up. This is going to be a joy to receive every couple of months.
Between the showers I snapped a few of the amazing cars with all their chrome, tails and fins shining.
Don't this couple look impossibly stylish and next to that great car too!
Maybe not quite as many home or furniture displays as last year but interesting all the same.
Ceramics were out in force, quite a bit of Hornsea pottery, this was by far my favourite stall. The stall holder was from Leeds and she shared my passion for Scandinavian ceramicists, she also had fabric too, my kind of stall!
This was the piece of fabric I bought from her stall, it's so groovy.

I thoroughly enjoyed the display of vintage textiles by
Lots of screen printed work by Hull Traders, Eames and some lovely old Laura Ashley pieces, mega bucks if you wanted to buy Hull Traders work.
This was some of my haul from their stall, bit of Laura Ashley Emma and some pretty floral.
From another stall, this groovy piece and pretty pins.
At this point my purse was screaming and my head was so overwhelmed with colours and pattern that I decided to call it a day, it was fabulous.
Thank you for sticking this out, apologies for photo quality but the lighting was challenging and here are a few final snaps!
Do go to this event if you ever get chance.
