The folks came down to stay this weekend. Dad went on the Friday to the Shepton Mallet Antiques Fair.....then we went with him on the Saturday. I love a mooch about don't you?.......Q and I were on the lookout for a few bits, ( pine cupboard doors, an old school writing desk, taxidermy - love us or hate for it......I don't mind )...
But you know, you never seem to find the bits you set out looking for. There was a gent selling loads of school desks for £30 each....Naaaaaahhh we said £20 max.......
Dad said " he's giving you a load of flannel, there's no way he sold them for £65 last week, walk away Nattie, you can do better than that ".....so true, don't you know your dad's always right?
BUT woooooaaahhh there Nelly ( I do love that name B.T.W ), we found a great Lusty Lloyd Loom basket.....pressie from the folks...ta muchly guys!
AND a french metal floral chandelier for the bathroom. Now it's not perfect, and a little bit chewed, but the price was gooooooood and I love daisies. She'll finish off the bathroom nicely I think. £30.......not bad????
So I think you guys ought to get yourselves down to you nearest fair. found here Our entrance fee was a neat £5......bargain, and even big bumbleebee came along and found a few wade ornaments for her and to take back for little bumblebee.
The word on the street is this........in summer they are bigger fairs, more to look at, though I found all the stalls at this one enough to be honest......if you do go to any, let me know your haggling tips, I'm always on the lookout for new ones ( the girly voice and eye fluttering only works on the men. Yes that's right, when there are bargains to be had, I'm ruthless, and destroy all women's rights in one swoop.....not quite, but you know what I mean ).
Happy Monday x
