Vintage Fair at Bridlington Spa

Thank you all for your concern over Bob in the last post and how he was looking a bit chilly. You will be pleased to know we visited the seaside again on Sunday and enjoyed wall to wall sunshine at the vintage fair in Bridlington. He certainly warmed his whiskers up!

Lovely old cars outside the front and a barrel organ to set the mood.

Inside the selection of stalls was great, obviously nowhere near the size of the York racecourse event but I was more impressed with the choice of stalls than the ones I've seen at the York city centre vintage events in recent times.

Vintage clothes are always quite expensive these days but I did find some well priced items and some of the Hornsea pottery was a realistic price too.

I treated myself to one or two little things, this is what I scooped up;
Quite a nice old tea towel, I like my vintage planes.

A pretty crinoline lady plate and some doillies.

A stall with a great selection of vintage children's hankies, I remember having some of designs on sale so I couldn't resist Pinky & Perky as I know I used to have this hanky.

Then I found a wonderful stall selling old beer mats and antique labels and advertising cards so I snapped up these which will work lovely in a forthcoming fabric design of more memorabilia.

And finally, I found these fabric samples which are lovely quality from a fabric book, quite big pieces the size of a fat quarter for a pound each.

That was my trip to the vintage fair.
Hope everyone enjoyed the sunshine as it seems to have vanished again!

Oh it looked a good event. My sister went and was telling me all about it.
Love the old cars, I think I would rather forget pinky and perky though.

Looks fantastic Sally. Oh those vintage children's hankies bring back memories.I remember we used to get them for christmas in schools. I especially remember the Tufty club ones, wish I still had them!

Hi Sally,
Love Bob's specs.

Just a quick note to let you know that I have closed down the cafe. I will write more about it on the blog in the next few days, but as a close blogger friend, I wanted you to know first. Hope your well.
