Star Struck!

On Saturday I went along to the Shepton Mallet Antiques Fair. I'm always after a bargain, so where else better to go, to rummage through old tins of other peoples junk!

We were wandering outside, when I spotted small crowd of people. Being nosy, I went over and had a look!
Only to spot Tim Wonnacott with the blue team being filmed for Bargain Hunt, along with the other antiques man (don't know his name)!

Although I never watch it, I was still star strucked! How stupid! Wasn't like Jude Law had just passed me was it!

The back end of the red team!

The camera man!

I wasn't stalking Tim all day! I did manage to look around the 4 large sheds and all the outside stalls.
Here are my goodies.

I bought these 3 pieces of material by Mulberry for 10p each!

And this little mixture.
  • 2 pairs of retro style earrings, that I will be making into hair pins. You may already recognise them. I bought the opposite sizes last time I went! 
  • 2 pairs of clip on antique flower earrings, that I will be also making into hair pins
  • A pair of tiny glasses! Couldn't resist!
  • Small bag of strawberry quartz tumblechip gemstones
  • 2 small apple charms with a purple stone
  • 2 sterling silver girl & boy kissing charms
  • And last, but not least a small swallow
There was also a stationary man there, so i bought some bags and some label tags from him, but I didn't think you would want a picture of that too!

So, not a bad day out. I spent £9.75, which is pretty good!

Hope you all have a great Sunday, and new week!

Deflated, but not for long!

Very deflated!

On Saturday, I had my last outdoor fair of the year. I had been looking forward to this fair for months at the Frome Cheese & Agricultural Show!

After getting up at 4am, arriving at 6am, and setting up by 8:30am I was already shattered, but I was really looking forward to the hustle bustle of the day..... so I thought!

It was an absolutely terrible day! I don't know whether it was where my stall was positioned, or, by the time people had paid the £12.50 entrance fee, and fed themselves they were out of money!

But thank you to everyone that came to my stall, and left lovely comments about my work. They were very much appreciated!

So now that I still have most of my stock, I will be starting to list items on my MISI store! This will also showcase some of the items will be available at the MISI Event on the 7th November @ The Paintworks, Bristol.

I hope you all have a lovely day!
