Hello? Is it me you're looking for?

Have you missed me?

Been a bit quiet here lately, only had a couple of fairs to do in the last couple of months and there are only a few coming up in the immediate future.  The summer is generally a quieter time of the year for me than the months leading up to Christmas.  I tend to steer clear of School Fetes and Summer Shows as they are less succesful for me plus I like to take a break too!  These type of events are also usually outdoors too, which I won't do (stamps feet a little)!

So, what have I been doing you may ask?

I have a full time job at the moment so most of my time is taken up with that.  But I have been trying to make the most of the fabulous summer we have been enjoying so far.

Long evening walks through poppy filled fields...

Socialising with my much neglected friends!  A couple of them have recently set up a new business running a Party/Sweet Cart, which they hire out for childrens parties and Weddings.  We had the privilege of having the cart at a recent birthday party and it was set up as the cakes and sweets stall.  They also have a popcorn machine and candy floss machine to hire!  Here is a quick snap of their cart after a few hungry gannets had been:

I have had a couple of new fairs recently.  One of new faves was the Market by the Green in Adderbury, with a vintage vibe about it.  It was a small intimate fair with several regular stalls mixed with a few guests stalls each time.  I was one of these guest stalls in July on what felt like the hottest day EVER!

Ahh any excuse to dress up in my lovely vintage style gear....
Dress: Lindy Bop
Shoes: BHS

Unfortunately most people were being rather sensible in this extreme weather and were keeping cool indoors somewhere.  But the few that did brave the inferno were lovely and I received some great feedback.  I hope to be invited to this event again, if not as a stallholder but as a customer just for the lovely vintage style tea room with its miles of pretty bunting, mismatched china and carrot cake to die for.....

Coming Up!

This weekend is the Bicester & Finmere Show.  After the disappointing Saturday last year I have decided to just do the Sunday only this time.  It is only open to the public on the Sunday and has a lovely atmosphere.  There is genuinely something there for everyone, from show jumping to dog shows, art & crafts marquee, trade stalls, fairground to ferret racing, refreshments and plenty of fresh air!  

Just fingers crossed that the weather holds XXXXXXXXXXXX

After that we just have Deddington Farmers Market on 24th August.  I will be in the Church as usual and look forward to seeing you there.  The Market is amazing, there is such variety and choice there, even for vegetarians like myself.  You can try most products before you buy them too!  They have a new/revamped/updated website too http://www.deddingtonfarmersmarket.co.uk/index.html, do visit this as there are often top tips about which sellers will be there and what products are in season/at their best each month.

THEN............on the 7th & 8th September it is the amazeballs fantastic wonderful MK Handmade & Vintage Fair again!!!  (do you get the impression I like this event???).  Mr FFC and I are off to Goodwood Revival the following weekend so we too will be browsing the fabby vintage and retro stalls for last minute additions to our outfits!  More details will follow I am sure but in the meantime take a look at their website http://www.mk-handmade-and-vintage.co.uk/next-event-details, "friend" them on Facebook and "follow" them on Twitter and keep up to date with the preparations and goings on.

Hmm hadn't realised that I've not shared my snaps from the last fair with you on here yet.  Here's one of a demented looking me with my stall from June, you can see how pleased I was to be there!  Check out my Facebook and Twitter feeds too for more!
