Well not exactly a new me, more a different blog. The antiques/vintage/decorative world is constantly moving and evolving, this time last year I set up my vintage bothy blog in conjunction with an offer to have a vintage spot in a local gallery, this didn't work out and I went back to doing big fairs, I now have a number of smaller vintage fairs that I shall be attending along with my normal Malvern/Shepton/Newbury.
I have had very positive comments from customers and perhaps even more confidence boosting from well established dealers. Comments which include words such as eclectic, & quirky English, which is great because that is what I strive for and also perhaps they are describing me?!
Since I have been blogging I have come into contact with a much nicer world than that of "antique dealers",some of whom can be quite unpleasant, the Vintage Ladies are a really friendly bunch and I would like to thank them for making me welcome.
If you have visited me at a fair you know that I tend to fill a large space, not personally that is, but with my eclectic stock, next week I have to condense myself down to fit a 6ft table, as I am delighted to have a stall at the Honiton textile & decorative fair on Tuesday 10th August.
That is the first step to the new me, secondly I am trying very hard to find a unit in a nice West Country town so that I can have a permanent base and so that I can buy all of the larger lovelies that I leave behind as they would take up too much space and strength to keep carting off to fairs!
Obviously being a Leo, I want that space now, so if anyone has any ideas?
It will be a slog for a while but in a few years Michael & myself & Flo & "the Angel" (maybe one weekend in a while) hope to move and live by the sea.
Back to the new me, the vintage bothy will be changing when I can think of the new name that I hope to use in the future, I want to include the words above & maybe the name Trixie, which was my Gran's.
So as in the World in which we move I am hoping to evolve into Trixie the quirky, eclectic, vintage, English Lady!
