I know, this is not food related but I originally started this blog wanting to write about lifestyle as well so occasionally I like to throw in vintage fairs and how to make sharpie mugs, just to keep life interesting.
If there's one thing I love more than baking, it's a vintage fair.
I swear Sunday was like teacup porn for me.
I love the Sutton Vintage & Arts Fair. It's honestly my favourite vintage fair. Sadly it only occurs twice a year but that's probably a good thing because I'd never have any money otherwise.
I was lucky enough to get myself and two friends on the guest list, although entry is only £1! This is the second time I have attended the fair and I am already planning on saving my pennies for the next one.
Not only are there over 80 stalls full of the best vintage and crafts, there are also tea and cakes courtesy of the brilliant Boutique Baking Company.
We had such a brilliant time wandering round all the stalls and I probably spent too much but I reassure myself by saying they're all 'one offs'...that's ok right?
I came away with 3 scarves - all £1 each! - a bow tie, tea cup and saucer, vintage jelly mould and an amazing emerald green Laura Ashley dress (pictured at the bottom) for just £18.
Here just some of the treasures available...
I always find fairs like this just a visual feast of vintage splendid-ness - my English is great! As you can see, my camera tends to be drawn towards china.
I'm pretty sure this dress will last me a long time. I can see it coming out during Summer (if we ever get one) and right through Christmas.
Keep an eye out on their Facebook page for the December dates. I hope to be walking away with an arm full of dresses.
Thanks to the lovely ladies at Sutton. Looking forward to December already.
