Don't expect anything too dramatic, lol, because we only have one winter bootfair, a small indoor one, and trying to find vintage things there is nigh on impossible. I most definitely do not need my trolley, lol! Usually I only end up with one or two things and they fit in my handbag.
So, lets start with a bit of kitsch, not vintage, but quirky. I do love cheeses, and these little silver plated cheese markers are so cute, they had to come home with me -
A gorgeous old pressed glass stemmed dish -
A beautiful pressed glass bowl -
See the hearts in the pattern, isn't that just lovely? -
Old baking forms -
Escutcheons, these will be great for mixed media collages, with a tiny image behind the keyhole -
A couple of old watches, no idea what I am going to do with them, yet -
This dainty little ring, which is perfect for my tiny hand and baby fingers. It is marked "silver" and has a sparkly little stone, and I found it ( not recently ) in a box full of old buttons and other weird bits and pieces -
Two silver plated or silver metal little thingies -
I do love this little trinket or potpourri box, it is so feminine and romantic -
Not entirely sure what this is for, it does have a liner, so could be used as a little vase perhaps -
A few doilies, appliqued napkins perfect for a bit of Spring colour, and a very sweet tray cloth -
Once my darling little angel has finished riding his white swan ( tehehee, remember TRex?), I'll make the swan into a little pincushion -
I could really do with a bit of help on this last item. You have probably noticed before that I like fancy over-the-top things, so when I saw this on a stallholder's table, I had to have it. They didn't know what it was, I sure don't know what it is, but I love it. I think it is Japanese, because the characters underneath it look Japanese to me, but I could be totally wrong of course. Sooooooo, if any of you know Japanese ( or Chinese if it turns out to be Chinese, lol ), I'd really love to know what it says. Probably the maker's name etc. Any info gratefully received! -
Aren't the details on this thing absolutely amazing?
These are the characters I need help with -
Wishing you all a good weekend, I hope you get to do whatever it is you have your heart set on.
