Recently I received one of the most beautiful compliments about my stall and what I do when were trading at the Everything Deco to Retro Fair. I was told that I had something going on with what I do that was different to anyone else there and that I had lovely hand picked items that gave them warm feelings and memories about their childhood. They joked that they felt like they just wanted to stay and relax in my stall all day long.
I was extremely humbled by these comments
whilst at the same time I felt assured that how I feel about what I do, is the the exact same feelings that they are having. The comment above isn't the only comment I received over the three days of the fair, there were many others who smiled and sighed with happiness and retold stories of their childhood and upbringings, and simply thanked me for taking them emotionally and mentally to that place.
With all that I've said above I want to crack on and show off a whole array of "finds" that I'm restocking our Etsy store with while others are being set aside for our next fair date at the upcoming Collectorville Fair on September 6th, I've also got a special post lined up to give you all further details for Collectorville as well as to show you the finds I have in store for all the dads for Father's Day. Don't worry if you aren't a daddy, because if you're a "gamer", Thunderbird fan or a train enthusiasts you will NOT
want to miss that post. So mummas, wives, girlfriends if your man sounds like one of these types of fellas, make sure you let him see that upcoming post.
I'm certain that these recent finds are going to be admired by others.
I adore this 1970's Woodcraft Gallery of Melbourne carving of a sweet boy playing the chello, but he won't be staying with me as he will be on offer. I have shown him some love and cleaned him up as he was rather dusty and I've given him some extra love with a good cabinetmakers cream wax.
Oh deer, lookie here. All are looking for new homes and will be venturing out to fairs to find a forever home.
Oh and these collectible creatures that hop.
Not to mention birds for our vintage loving bird girls.
Then we have these lovelies! I have many a doll collector pop by my stall at fairs, and these sweeties have all come my way this week plus others which I have had people eagerly champing at the bit for so some are already on their ways to new homes. But here are a few sweeties being added to shelves and coming on the road with me.
Finally a couple of sweet vintage Aboriginal art pieces depicting children, will be added to a little section for our upcoming displays, of uniquely Australian vintage children's items, books and toys.
I have loads more exciting finds to show over coming days and weeks, so stay tuned.
