Weekend Finds

The choice on Saturday was decorating or getting out and about looking for new items for our next fair at the Academy in Aberdeen from the 1st of December. I found some great stuff.

In the picture above there is a Greenway trio set by Hostess Tableware. I found a set of six in perfect condition. Next to the trio is a gorgeous Winnblad March wall plaque and a Midwinter Berkeley milk jug.

I also found some lovely items in their original boxes. A beautiful set of Ravenhead Chunkies which have never been used and a set of Arcopal egg cups.

If you see anything in our blog or facebook that you would like more information about please e-mail us as we often sell items before we get a chance to put them on our web site.

Weekend Finds

The weather has not been good this weekend so what better way to spend the day than by going out and about looking for great vintage items. Take a look at what I found for our next fair. 

In the picture above there is the beautiful Brexton Picnic Set for four which is in great condition. The Olympia typewriter is complete with its case and inspection papers! The cute little milk jug and sugar bowl is a design called Madrid by J & G Meakin.

These Schreiber units will look great in any bedroom. The legs on them are so cute and curvy.

Vintage and Craft Fair

Last Sunday we attended the Vintage and Craft Fair held by I Heart Art at the Galleria in Aberdeen. The day was a great success with people queueing to get their hands on the goodie bags available to the first 50 in the door. There were lots of other stall holders including Feet and Tea, TwentyThreeTwo, The Closet, Storm in a Vintage Tea Cup and Flourish. Some of the items which found good homes on the day were our lovely 1960s Schreiber sideboard, a 60s nest of tables, Meakin Topic tea set and our typewriter.

Here are some photos of our stall on the day.

We will have to head out hunting soon for more great treasures for our next fair.....
