- 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

Covered in roses - Cath Kidson ones !
Hope you have all had a good week. It has flown by here, probably because it was no school on Monday.
Anyway last weekend Mr V and I had a child free weekend so off we went to Bristol
First we went to a antiques and vintage fair at the West of England University just outside Bristol at their Frenchay campus
I bought an apron to sell on and Mr V bought a coin for his collection. It was quite good and reasonable prices, a lovely location in a new spacious conference centre, a huge cafe area and no crowds. Would go again even though quite a long way from here.
The main reason for heading 'up north' was to spend my Cath Kidston voucher I had for my birthday back in March
We found a nearby car park (thank goodness for sat nav!) and the shop stood there in all its glory and I could have almost anything I wanted yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
What a lot I got !
A lovely day out we had.
On the Sunday I went to a local car boot sale and then to Tesco for breakfast (we know how to live!) then across the moors to Yelverton to Buckland Abbey
we stumbled on another car boot sale on the way - perfect !
Yelverton is a fairly posh plcae and it was one of those lovely boot sales with people who dont do them very often selling nice things instead of plastic toys (car boot snob I am)
I bought loads of table cloths and things and have been very busy washing and ironing it all....
It was a Jaguar and Aston Martin owners club day and there were some lovely cars there -
one day ey !!??
