Zoe Lem's Vintage Fair

On Sunday 28th October I had a stand at Zoe Lem's Vintage Wedding Fair. Ok, I know... that was ages ago! We are now in March and I am finally talking about something that happened months ago, but oh well! 

It was held at the Old Sessions House, Clerkenwell, London. It was a great day and met loads of interesting people. I had my mum and sister-in-law helping me and we all glammed up with fascinators.

I put a lot of effort into my stand after being disappointed with my earlier efforts at a fair in February 2012. I produced some Art Deco inspired cards (below) to hand out to people, complete with a diamanté crystal glued on by hand. Read more about my preparations for the vintage fair here.

Here's how my stand turned out! Woo hoo!

Me in my vintage dress (was my great grandmother's!) and fascinator looking the part.

My mum, Ellen, with my brother's girlfriend, Jo lent me a hand.
Don't they look fab too!

Here is a hand knitted angel posing on my stand. She's a bit cheeky
and may have had a few mulled wines! It was made by my mum
and are for sale if anyone wants to buy some.
