I kid you not, I was a tad excited! You know... the sort of excitement you felt when you were little and you were told you were going to a birthday party...well walking towards the Market House, where the craft fair was being held, I felt almost giddy with anticipation and excitement as I knew Selina Lake would only want the best of the bunch of "Handmade & Vintage" businesses and I could not wait to muse around all the gorgeous stands.

Also, as I happened to mention above, the vintage tea rooms were on this floor...whoops, but who could resist the giant slices of cake and lashings of tea and coffee.... you would have to be a saint not to!
It was lovely to meet the faces behind the name...and Nicholas & Steele's stand was just as gorgeous as it is on Facebook!
Some beautiful crochet floral corsages
fabulous hooped wall hangings from Vicky Trainor
I have quite a collection of these gorgeous signs, and also bought one at the fair too!

Some lovely props and items from Vintage Style Living
and lastly, here is the gorgeous sign from Vicky Trainor (www.thevintagedrawer.com & www.thelinengarden.co.uk) that is now proudly hanging in my kitchen!
I cannot wait for the next fair to be held, and hope that I will have the opportunity to spend another couple of hours just soaking in all the handmade gorgeousness...my idea of vintage craft heaven!
