Its been over a month since the last Vintage Fair at Stockport Vintage Village, but it was a fantastic fair (I purchased an amazing Scottish Made red, blue and white tartan cape for a steal at £20 from a very nice lady, as well as a couple of vintage dress patterns)
I also had a chat with two ladies that had craft stalls at the fair, both with beautiful products and wonderfully presented stands...
The first was Sesame and Lilly. I was blown away by her stall which was filled with french love letters and postcards printed onto pretty floral fabrics and lace. She produces a vast array of items, from hand bound journals, to cosmetic cases and cushions, lavender pillows and sewing cases (I am definitely purchasing one at the next show)
I was particularly interested in her use of the old letters and postcards as I have recently completed a feature for a magazine sharing my own collection of love letters, postcards, photographs and greetings cards sent between my Great Aunt & Uncle during World War II.

(Note my pictures do not do the stall justice!!)
The second ladies stall I saw that I particularly liked was called Nellie and Elsie. I particularly liked her handbound books (but my picture did not come out very clear) as well as her earring range and the charming 'Key To Happiness' gift set.
