Little Vintage Lover Fair - Heydon

Well what a wash out today has been.  We were meant to be taking little Y's to the zoo but the weather had other ideas!  We woke to pouring rain which didn't ease off until gone 2pm!  Reluctantly, we spent the day at home knitting (only me obviously!), catching up with friends and eating FAR too much cake. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              A day at home gave me the time to download the very few photographs that I took last weekend.  On July 1st - although I can't believe it was only a week ago because it feels SO much longer - we had a stall at the Little Vintage Lover Fair in Heydon.

I'd never been to Heydon before but found it to be such a pretty village.  It has no through road and no new buildings have been constructed there since the Queen Victoria commemorative well in 1887 (although I'm not sure a well classes as a building but I'm sure you get what I mean!).  As beautiful and quiet as the village is, I'm not sure I'd like to live there - a bit eerie for cowardly me. 

The fair had a lovely atmosphere, was well attended, well organised and we had a brilliant time.  There were some beautiful items offered for sale but I resisted the urge to bring more goodies home with me - just!  Thankfully, the weather stayed fine and only a few drops of rain only fell at 4.30, by which time, we were packing away.   

Shame on me, I didn't get many snaps of the fair, 3 to be precise.  I'm a bit of a camera coward and am not that comfortable walking around taking shots.  Thankfully others did though and you can see some of them here.  My shots.......

This lady was beside us and made the little girl dresses from vintage fabric - very sweet.
Being in North Norfolk, Mr Y took the little Y's to Sherringham and then Cromer.  There was a vintage vehicle run on the North Norfolk Railway and they all had a ride on a vintage bus and steam trains were running on the line.  We're back at the railway in September for their 1940's event.  I'm already looking forward to it!  Just look at the carriages!

Of course, a day beside the seaside means the obligatory ice-cream.  When they came to collect me at the end of the day, the first thing they told me was how tasty it was and how Daddy had let them have a flake AND sprinkles - no photos though as Daddy was too busy scoffing his - and half of eldest Y's!

The next fair is on September 2nd in Burnham Market, North Norfolk.  The fairs are very well run, have a great atmosphere and lots of treasures to be found :o)  What's not to like :o)
