Of course, as usual at these things, too much loveliness and too little pennies - but I did buy a vintage Butterick blouse sewing pattern for £7, these recycled crocheted flowers for £3...
This linen floral fabric for my standard lampshade project. A bargain at £4.50 I thought.
Three pairs of sugar tongs...
Daughter: "Do you really need those; you already have some?"
Me: "Yes" (For my vintage tearoom/B&B of course)
It's also interesting to look at the work of vintage-inspired crafters and designer-makers.
Daughter L loved this memory quilt and took some inspiration from it for her Textiles 'A' level
I also met Kelly Reagon, the designer-maker of 'Martha and Arthur' , vintage-inspired children's wear. Kelly has used her talents from the fashion industry to create a range of well-made gorgeous garments for children.

Now I am off to carry on cutting out my prototype vintage blouse!
