It went fantastic.

Just a couple of quick photo's and a update. Our market went so well, we were really pleased as it was our first and that's always a worry, Friday evening was buzzing and a great crowd came through, a terrific response from customers and stall holders alike. The atmosphere was so nice. A big thanks to all our stall holders and also the customers that came through. Next one probably in July. We also had quite a few wanting to join us for our next one so if your interested let us know. More photo's to come.

And some sweet old little childs shoes.

These have been lovingly worn and probably passed on down threw the family, the worn appearance just adds to their charm I think.

Some Vintage wedding gowns.

These geogous vintage wedding gowns will be at the Vintage fair, not long now, postcards ( flyers) have gone out, banner has been ordered, nerves setting in, thanks goodness my sister is with me.

New Products

Up until now I have not made any entries, no excuse, just the usual, teaching, running a business and creating new products for this market. These will be new just for this market.
I saw a sample of these one of the Somerset Life magazines winter 2008 by Amy Hanna, I thought it a nice way to display Joannes jewellery, can be sold with the jewellery or separate. Mmmh argh do you know how hard it is to scan jewellery it skitters around on the glass, took my 5 attempts to get this one, still not perfect but you get the idea. I have used vintage album page with an old parlour card. Can be hung on the wall, I have made a pair of these and they are mounted onto old book covers. This one of two is also mounted on old book covers covered in vintage paper.A handmade journal, all pages on finest French watercolour paper, painted in Golden acrylics with illustrations of vintage items on each page. I have kept a very pale colour scheme in this journal. I am up to the point of binding and will get that done in the next week. This is an original one of a kind limited edition.
this small image is of a goose feather Christmas tree of which we will have in a variety of sizes, they look lovely in a white colour scheme.

These beautiful white snow crusted church and house's go so well with the goose feather Christmas trees, go create a vintage vignette in your home this Christmas. We are getting excited, nervous but excited, plans buzzing around in my head for decorating the hall, this will be an experience never seen in Australia before, come share with us.

DREAM in rhinestone's.

I have this lovely vintage rhinestone brooch with the word DREAM, added my favourite mother of pearl rosaries and other bits and pieces.

The DREAM word doesn't show up so good in the photo's but certainly stands when its on.
