Dotty Sparkle at the seaside...

Well hello! It's been a while...
Holidays have been taken, work has been resumed and blogging seems to have fallen by the wayside for a bit. I'm sure the bug will catch me again. I've been having a butchers at all yours though even if I've not been commenting very much. Thanks for all your comments on the last post and hello to any new followers. Welcome aboard!
Anyway, I thought I'd just pop in and let you know that next Sunday my sister and I are doing our first, much talked about but never got round to doing it, vintage fair. Edith Florence goes live!
We'll be here...

 ...trying to tout some toot. No really, being serious, we have a bit of good gear between us and also a shedload of my mum's more retro 70's 80's stylee stuff.
So, if you fancy a little day out at the seaside, get yourself down to Thorpe Bay next Sunday. Please God it won't rain and plenty of people turn up. If not we'll be eating too much cake and drinking too much tea and disturbing everyone with our loud laughing. It will be fun anyway.
I've been washing, sorting and boxing up and although we're a bit nervous it's also quite exciting now that we've finally got round to doing it.
Be there or be square!
Hope you're enjoying this late summer we've having... about flipping time though 'aint it?


  1. Hello Missy
    Lovely to see you back here!

    Yes,I would love to go to your Vintage Fair dearly! I can think of nothing better to do. I wouldn't mind a week over in the Uk at all but work keeps rolling in and I can't refuse...taking it while its around :-)
    All the same I hope it goes super well for you.

    keep well

    Amanda :-)

  2. Good luck for next week. Hope it goes swimmingly and you sell lots. I've spent most of today sorting through stuff for a car boot tomorrow. Xx

  3. Oh boy! Sounds like fun. I hope you sell loads, and maybe even buy a little something for yourself too!

  4. wow! good luck - and I hope you do well - looks like a good day out! x

  5. Welcome back, strewth I've missed ya. Hope you had a great hols and I really wish I could nip over next week, if only to hear you and the sis cackling loudly!!!
    But we move house on the Monday 17th (my birthday, nice and stressful birthday then!!!) so will be tres hectic.
    Hope it all goes well. Hope it all goes. And you actually sell the lot. How cool would that be?!
    Good luck

  6. Just wrote a long comment but it disappeared into the ether and haven't got time to repeat it all - thank the Lord, I hear you say - but anyway have a blast selling lots of toot (albeit good toot)and, if you're anything like me, you'll probably end up spending more than you make on the other stalls.

  7. Good luck with it!
    Wish I was there, I actually come from that neck of the woods, do you live there?

    PS just noticed your pretty pink jug and plate, Awww I have the same, they are Rosa by Meakin,I believe!!

  10. I am always excited to find someone who has a booth. It is my dream to sell at a fair and at the moment I'm just trying to make and collect enough sell-able items to start one. Hopefully I'll be ready by next spring. Please come visit, my welcome mat is always out. If you would like to be mutual followers . . . that would be great. Connie :)
