A WEE TRIPPY TO ARDINGLY INTERNATIONAL ANTIQUES & COLLECTORS FAIR

IMG_6005A few weeks back, Daisy and I braved the inevitable rain and mud and took a Living with Daisy school trip to Ardingly Antiques and Collectors fair.

Wellies and gloves firmly in place, we wandered from stall to stall ooo-ing and ahhh-ing over some truly sumptuous stuff. A newcomer to this particular fair, I was pleasantly surprised to see the stands awash with oodles of story-telling goodness, some of which I have documented for you below.

I’ll talk you through it, shall I?

IMG_6060An entire bucket of old wooden metre rulers- had not anticipated how delighted this could make me feel.

IMG_6050Not mad keen on the colour, but it’s almost indecent how much I love this style of light-fitting.

IMG_6046In short, the greatest bobbins I have ever seen.

Ummm, these gorgeous 30s Vintage Welsh Blankets: needed in my life.

IMG_6059Bloody. Love. These. (And I don’t even like Pepsi- unless it’s the only fizzy choice an all-inclusive package holiday in Egypt has to offer- but that’s a story for another time.)

IMG_5975This bench seat is a bit of a beaut- admittedly it would probably collapse if I sat on it- as is the neighbouring enamelware.

IMG_5991Tell me, who doesn’t love an old wooden trug?

IMG_6056A lovely box of balls- no pun intended.

IMG_5999And last but not least, a cup of the frothy stuff necessary for survival.

Happy Friday all!
