More to tempt you

 I have been busy sewing, I have made two sets of wings to sell, they are rather tricky to make and time consuming.  I will also have only a few of Jeanne d'arc Living magazines as well as these lovely notebook and address books for sale.

a selection of Stampington magazines, most reduced to half price plus a couple of more recent copies, these are a bargain and always sell quickly at this price

bric a brac plus an antique swivel stool, now these have got to tempt the imaginative buyer
Just over a week to go, will love to see you

More things to see.

 Some of my pieces you be seeing at Guildford.
 I have a great love of old suitcases.

 I have revamped my green boring umbrella, using vintage lace etc etc.

Off course then I had to paint the green base too.
And a work in progress on the bunting, and lots of it too.

is calling for an expression of interest
Guildford Heritage Festival have approached us to become part of their festival which is being held 
on Sunday March 24th, 2013 and we are very keen to join them.  An area in Stirling square would 
be sectioned off for Miss Johnson’s Vintage and Handmade market.  Their guide lines  are very 
strict  that all products must be vintage or handmade using vintage.  And if we wish to join them 
we must follow their wishes.  Another request is that we do not a lot of same product stalls ie 
vintage clothing or jewellery.  We have photo’s of what we envisage Miss Johnson’s will look 
like,  you can have a lot of fun using frames of tents, porta shades or market umbrella’s. 
 For those interested in joining us we will have a meeting at Stirk Park with the organiser of 
Guildford Heritage Festival, Phillipa and myself with a demonstration on how you can decorate 
your shelter.  We would  advise you to have some shelter as it is extremely hot at this time of year
 and although there are trees in the area we are allocated, they do not shade the area until very late 
in the day.  The festival is between 10 am and 4pm which would be about time there would not be
 any shade. As you can see from the photo’s that the look of products spilling out looks very inviting 
to the public.  We would like to stand out as uniquely different to the other craft tents in the park. 
 By joining Guildford Heritage Festival we would benefit by their extensive advertising in all 
media’s including radio interviews with 6PR and others.  We would also be covered by their
 Public Liability cover for the event.  This would not cover you as an exhibitor for your products etc. 
We are very excited about this opportunity and as we do not have to pay for the hire of the hall 
and advertising, the charge for being part of Miss Johnson’s would be $50,  for our part we will 
be participating in the advertising and organising and decorating the area Miss Johnson’s Vintage 
and Handmade market in the style you now know from past events.
Knowing what creative girls you are, we think you are quite capable of being part of this event.  
Please contact us as soon as possible so you don’t miss out, we will need about 20 stall holders and 
we will be looking for more  after contacting you, also if you know of anyone suitable please do 
not hesitate to give them our details.

.  Can you visualize how this section of Stirk park that has been allocated to Miss Johnson’s will look with 
white bunting, floating angel wings as well as beautifully decorated tents similar to the tents above, won’t 
it be exciting to be part of this.
We have a prime spot under these beautiful trees on the corner in the background is the roundabout heading 
across the bridge leading into the popular Swan Valley, very visual and we will have banners etc well 
visible from these roads.

We have already received applications from very creative people and are looking for just
a few more, so come join us, you will have a lot of fun and this is something we
want to build on.

Contact us now
Or phone us for any further queries

 The above photo's where taken at a market Phil and I did last year in Caningvale where we started decorating our tents.  We will look much better in the park.  Just to give you an idea.
