Whirlwind Weekend at the Fashion Fairs

Hi everyone, I have only just logged on to my laptop after 3 days, it has been a really busy weekend- a good one, just busy!!

I did a Vintage Fashion Fair on Saturday as well as Sunday, Saturdays one was at Wanstead, East London which I didn't blog about as I was a bit nervous it being my first time there. I didn't need to worry, as it was a lovely atmosphere and had a steady flow of customers and it was great to meet new sellers and also see again my lovely blogger friend at Elegancemaison who also had a stall.


I wore one of my thrift finds from last week, a 60s cotton sundress by Berkertex, quite in trend for this Summer too with Nautical style stripes:

My stall on Saturday:

Hubby and I had a really nice day, the weather was so hot so I didn't need a cardigan or jacket!

Sunday we were at Primrose Hill which was another lovely day out but the weather was really quite cold and then it poured down with rain!!

My outfit here is a silver 60s crocheted jerkin which was a find from the Wanstead Fashion Fair and my maxi skirt is a thrift find from last week and has a lovely Ethnic print-I'm not sure if its Egyptian or Indian but its a favourite for Summer:

It was back to the day job yesterday and I hit the boot sales and charity shops yesterday and today too, so feel quite knackered!! I'm behind on my blog reading, so I will definitely be checking in with you all over the next few days!

The sun has been out today-hurray, I hope it stays for a few days at least! Wishing you all a good week whatever you are upto!!

I'm so glad it all went well for you. You look gorgeous in both outfits and your stall looks so inviting.
Those Indian wraparounds are still sold in India today, handblocked and coloured with vegetable dye in the same way as they were forty years ago. xxx
