vintage handmade fair

oh we did have a lovely day!!! 4 children offloaded on the lovely mr.h and off we skipped a carful of ladies to Chipping Sodbury town hall to the vintage hand made fair. Jo and I were like kids in a sweetie shop we didn't know where to look first, stripy sheets, paisly eiderdowns, vintage buttons, lovely crochet oh the list was endless. I managed to spend a small fortune, I will show you some pictures of my purchases later in the week (I am away printing new childrens range at the moment - more of that soon). It was so wonderful to put some faces to favourite names in the blog world. We were especially thrilled to see so many pinnys and we will be poting some photos of the lovely blog ladies in their pinnies soon as june is apron month here at hardakerandpope. Anyway for now heres a few pictures (I don't know how but I managed to take only a few - too busy chatting!!). And an apology to Harriet who after 3 hours looked like she had lost the will to live!!!!


  1. Hello Sarah.. it was so lovely to meet you and Jo at the fair on Saturday.. the highlight of the day was meeting so many new bloggers, old blogging friends and lurkers who were brave enough to introduce themselves to me.
    Glad you had such a good time...Wish I had worn my pinny now. !!
    Hope to see you at the next fair in November..

  2. Look forward to the pinny pics!
