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

First car boot of the year !!

Yippee  the car boot sales have started !
I went to my first one on Saturday, didn't get there until about three hours after it started but it was still very enjoyable and perfect weather
 Some old bottles to put flowers in and a lovely old trowel. I wonder what stories it could tell?
 Some china pots, bells and egg cups (to sell on)
 A pretty blue necklace for 75p which I am wearing now (as if I dont have enough necklaces!)
 Some vintage pastry forks and fabric jam pot covers (to sell on)
 A brand new O'Neill surfy bag with tags £1
A crinoline lady table cloth - a bit marked but only 20p

There, not a bad stash really

Have been sorting out mine and Miss V's summer clothes today so will be listing loads on Ebay tonight hopefully

Have a great week
