A colourful fair tomorrow

 Let's hope the sun has got his hat on because hip, hip, hooray I've got a fair tomorrow.
I've not done one this year as all my 'spare' time has gone into replenishing Custard Hall but when a lovely lady rang and asked if I'd attend 'a bit of a Do' at Litton Cheney I thought it was about time.
I shall be packing up all sorts of vintage bits and bobs and have been busy making too. 
 I'm focusing on small things mainly under a £5 such as patchy hangers from vintage sheets
 Fridge magnet packs.
 Soaps wrapped in vintage wallpaper
 Good old fashioned sweetie jars
 And there will be T-shirts galore! These are appliqued with vintage sheets and finished with a crochet flower and colourful button.
Meanwhile at Custard Hall stock is selling quickly and I've decided I need to focus on the small stuff as my furniture and bigger items tend to go better at the antique centre. So, I've moved downstairs and have a 'new' old dresser to display my wares.
What do you think?
I'm just a bit addicted to utility china and it seems the good people of Dorchester are liking it too!
Do take a look if you're local or pop along to Litton Cheney's 'A Bit of a Do' tomorrow afternoon.
