Vintassion Uncovered - #56, 14/11/14




Hi Vintage Lovers,


We enjoyed a lovely morning last Saturday trading from our Vintybits Stall at Vintage & Handmade's very popular Jumble Sale at Rangeworthy, Gloucestershire. The doors literally burst opened at 10am with throngs of visitors eager to "seize" lots of goodies in between taking refreshments provided as ever by the local WI...



... we can tell you their homemade cakes are some of the best we have the pleasure of eating!  For more lovely photos check out our facebook album, including one of the organisers Michele and Jayne having a well deserved cuppa.  The next event is their 6th Annual Vintage & Handmade Christmas Fair on the 13 December at Chipping Sodbury and one we're certainly looking forward to visiting again!
