I went to the Country Living Spring Fair last night and it was a really good event. I saw loads of interesting little companies and, despite my worrying bank balance, I couldn’t resist a spot of shopping! A highlight for me was the lovely Cape Henley stall, where I spotted these cute vintage postcard storage boxes, £10 each.
I think the fair was a lot quieter than it has been in previous years – perhaps a sign of the recession – but it meant there were no crowds to fight through and the whole experience was much more relaxing than usual! I had a nice chat with Maria from Deckchair Stripes who showed me her gorgeous striped outdoor fabrics. Isobel blogged about the stunning new Deckchair Stripes hammocks a few weeks back, so it was good to see the range in the flesh.
Her stall really got me in the mood for summer! For more pretty buys, visit the Ideal Home website. – EllieTweetRead more →
