Hello to all our friends, those who came to our previous Homespun & Vintage Fairs.

We have moved venues for our 2011 Festive Homespun & Vintage Fair, to create a little extra room for some new additional stall holders...we'll be back at the tranquil Quaker Meeting House for Spring 2012.

The Parish Hall, Hallgarth in the very heart of the charming Market Town of Pickering (Behind St Peter’s and St Pauls Church, up the stairs at the top of the Market Place)

There will be beautiful and unique pieces to treat yourself, give as gifts or to decorate your home, plus lots of exciting and inspirational ideas for your home and wardrobe.

Also, there will be our very popular “Vintage Tea Room” serving tea, coffee and homemade cakes on vintage china.

So join us in spreading some “Happiness & Festive Sparkle”. A very warm welcome awaits you and with shabby chic treasure to be found.

We look forward to seeing you there!

My Weekend Part Two - Excitement at The Homemade & Vintage Fair

Calling all vintage lovers...Mum and I took a little trip to Thirsk on-route to Harrogate for a Ma/Daughter day out and look what we found another Mum & Daugher duo, Anne and Dawn (Anne has a lovely Blog and Shop please follow the links) We started the day with a latte and a chat!

Introducing Abigail from Wooden Hill Images...her photography was so lovely with a vintage twist, how much do you love Abigail's chair with the prayer book back, perfect home for her business cards.
Below you will find a lovely array of gorgeous vintage treats, please take a peak!

Here is Sarah working away, Sarah set up the Fair with her friend Jackie...two very talented ladies.

Yummy treats to keep you going whilst looking for homely tresure.

Here is one of my little purchases, I love the colour and I love how the tray pops off the top it was a very reasonable £28
The following photo's are from the art gallery next door, Anne and I adored this chair.

Paper bikini...mmm very pretty for my Jolly Holi's next week!

Lots of Fair love

My weekend Part One - My Farmhouse Kitchen creation for The Ginger Pig at The Speciality Fine Food Fair, Olympia

Come on inside at The Speciality Fine Food Fair running from 4th - 6th September, for a glance at The Ginger Pig stand number 944. Here you will find my titavated and collated Farmhouse Kitchen full of delicious Ginger Pig produce.

This is the 2nd time I've been asked to design a stand for a food fair which The Ginger Pig have been part of.

I set up The Ginger Pig stand on Saturday morning with the help of Jayne 'GP London Manager' - she was so great and we had a giggle along the way.

Follow the transformation below of bare industrial stand to a little bit of Yorkshire in London...

Wow all that space to fill, I was certainly in my element! First things first hanging many meters of Linen against the walls.

The Ginger Pig have been very busy!

Making pies, their delicious sausage rolls, sausage and bacon just to name a few. Les the baker has been busy at Grange Farm (Levisham) making lots of Ginger Pig yumminess for the fair goers to taste, along with one of his 3 tier Pork Pie Wedding Cakes to wow you...

A wire pig that I found at a booty for all of £3, pegged with Ginger Pig flyers!

A teeny tiny tea pot filled with Violas looked so cute sat on top of the chiller. I also added a handmade vintage piggy bunting to add that welcoming touch!

Mmm delicious pies...

The 'Ginger Pig Meat' book, a very recommended purchase, Gary and I have been loving lots of the recipes!

A new venture for The Ginger Pig - The Ginger Pig Meat Kitchen Classes are now available…call Amy on 01751 460802 to book your place.

Fresh free range straight from the Farm.

Hope you've enjoyed your e-visit to the fair, it certainly was a fab day and I hope The Ginger Pig have a good few days.

Lots of Ginger Pig love,
