I've signed up for a stall at a fair in August and have been thinking about what to put out for sale.
At the last fair, in which I didn't take part, there were a lot of shabby chic stalls with a plethora of beautifully-made items - bunting, hearts, soft toys, pinnies, peg bags, etc. This made me think that I would be just another similar seller so I've decided to take a gamble and concentrate this time on more vintage-y items. I hope people will go for old style with a twist. Who knows? Still, "Speculate to accumulate" they say.
I rootled out all my doilies and lace, plus cottons, hand-dyes and floral stuff...
... what a mess!
I had to tidy up the whole workroom after this rootle.
I even hunted out some very old embroidery transfers and have started stitching old-fashioned lavender bags. I'll keep you up to date with proceedings anyway.
Son of C, No. 2, brought his joinery skills to bear on a little request I'd made. I have a tatty old loom which makes lovely strings of tied cloth strips - see previous post on Corsages and asked if he could made a couple more, a little less tatty. These turned up yesterday:
Six expertly-make loomy things, plus a big one for thicker fabrics!
What a clever boy! I'm getting him on to peg looms next...
