Pretty ribbon from here
more gorgeous ribbon on lovely vintage wooden spools from this lovely lady
and I finally got myself one of these at a reduced price too.
The pretty fabric used to make these dresses is designed by Bryony at Poppy, I loved the design, but couldn't afford the price tag, so I bought a little 'make with mother' kit that they make up with the left over fabric from the dresses, just so I could have a piece of it to treasure. But now I've discovered you can buy the fabric by the metre on the website, so I may re-visit when funds allow.
after I'd 'done' the fair, I made a detour via Marylebone High St to here where I treated myself to a pair of these lovely pumps, some oilcloth for the dining table and a cute little budgie badge. Sadly they didn't have this in stock, so I didn't get to have a proper look at it, to see if I really love it and really want it. They said it's due back in mid april, so hopefully it will be a firm contender for my birthday present wish list.
So all in all it was a good day, even though my partner in crime didn't manage to make it because she was brought down by the dreaded lurgy.
