- Vintage from the Village
- Ivybridge, Devon, United Kingdom
- Hi Thank you for visiting my blog. My name is Sue and I live with my lovely husband who I will call Mr V and our nine year old daughter Miss V in a small town in South Devon. Everyone who lives here talks about it as The Village so that will be my blog name- Vintage fron the Village Also in our family are two cats, two guinea pigs some tropical fish and a pond with goldfish I have always loved making things and love pretty vintage things which I hope to sell as well to fund my passion! I am addicted to buying fabric,ribbons, buttons,wool etc and love to visit charity shops and car boot sales.I love glasses of wine, gardening, crochet (easy stuff!) and I am a big E-Bay fan ! I also love to read other people's blogs which inspired me to start my own. I look foward to hearing from you Best wishes Sue

Hi I know its over a week since Easter but I have just downloaded the photos from my mobile phone at last and this is one I took when we went on an easter egg hunt at Saltram House last weekend. I thought it was very sweet ! The schools are still on Easter holidays so I thought I would show you.
Anyway, I did make it to the much looked foward to jumble sale. Off I went to South Brent to the village hall. I knew it would be a job to park as the village doesn't seem to be designed for cars- very quaint but I think it would drive me loopy if I lived there.
I drove down a country lane lookinf for somewhere to park and as is always the case , a van was two inches behind me so I just had to keep going as it was very narrow and then went up a hill and then there was a horse and rider in the way- nightmare.
In the end the van turned off and I had to do about a 6 point turn in someone's driveway and drive back down to the hall and found a parking place in the road.
I was pleased to arrive after all that and had to take two nurofen before I joined the queue !!
This is what I bought
A lovely letter rack with forget me nots on
A rather strange coat hanger with parrots on
A brand new apron with chickens on
Some children's books for Miss V (no photo as scattered around the house already)
A vintage 1980's Laura Ashley dress ! I will be either selling it as it is or selling it as vintage fabric
There- quite pleased with that lot
Will be back soon with tales of the rest of the weekend, before I go a good friend of mine Debbie has just set up a Misi shop to sell the candles she has started making, the first ones she has listed are trifle lookalikes in vintage glass sundae dishes
