Well hell-ooooo prostis!!!!
We're finally done with the antique fair, phew! We've packed, repacked, unpacked, re-sorted the shop...and even had a day off.

So now life returns to normal until the next one :)


We focussed on Art Deco this time, of course with a skin on the floor to set off the look.





Our green display was decimated within the first hour!



Martini glasses and sparkles, what better to set the mood for some serious shopping.



Tons of little treasures to charm and inspire!


Self-cut 40s fringe works wonders for styling, yay!!

And no, I didn't wear this outfit at the fair, this fab 40s crepe suit was purchased on our recent buying trip and will be in the shop soon.



It has beautiful beading around the collar which is all intact, my 40s glass beads go so well with it I think.


And just what did she wear at the fair, I hear you ask??




Sue put this pic up on our Facebook page earlier, click the link to see her hilarious comment about the lemon-sucking looks on our faces.

I'm wearing the 40s crepe dress which is known as 'the poo', can you guess why??

Sue is wearing my blue suit, last seen here.



Here's a better pic of my new 40s hat, on its first outing.

I'll be catching up with all your doings in the next few days but I've been having trouble commenting on some blogs today; the post a comment box hasn't been showing up...please let me know if you've had this happen and what you did about it!

You look stunning, in both the lilac suit and the "poo" dress! I love the Poo, it's very elegant as poos go! And that final photo of you in the amazing hat is.. well, amazing!
Your stall look so beautiful, I would have loved to wander round ooh and ahh-ing with envy over all your delicious treasures.
Hope you're having chance for a bit of time off and relaxing now. xxxx

Well I know why it's called "The Poo" Because my Husband bought a car some years ago that was a nice shade of brown.*heheh* I nick-named it "POO LINE" And Hubs was quite mad about that.
The car had a nice big strip of silver chrome and that is where I got line from.

You & Sue look quite lovely.
And all your items for the fair are just gorgeous. There is so many things I would like to call my own! *heheh*
