September 4th/5th marked the day that Ben has been waiting for, for a year.
Over the past year he has devoted his spare time to his real life love and passion of collectibles and antiques.
He constantly amazes me with his knowledge of the thrift world.
He bought some seriously cute and cool stuff:
My fav items he took to the fair were:
This white dresser top, and the HUGE gorgeous bench. <3 Well over 6 foot of pure pretty!
I loved the big old bunches of keys. and this pirate style treasure chest...
I loved this little round bottomed basket and wicker hamper.
The tiny mini child's seat was stunning, can you imagine it in a nursery!? Cute!
He had four letter press trays, and I wasn't allowed any of them!
eeeek - wooden pastry wheels and vintage jelly molds!
Here is the team - my dad in the hat giving the stall a certain sense of drama <3
It was so much fun - I only went for half a day - but was mezmerised by the stalls there - the eclectic mix of items for sale was a real treat for the eyes. - Some of my favourites from other stalls were:
I wanted ALL of these!!!
"cockermouth" <--- snigger. (Grown up SJ!!)
tiny chairs! tiny painted old chairs!
These were the perfect example of the mix of old and new...
Glitter balls in vintage butler sinks!
I spent about half an hour in this stall in blissful meditation.... button button, who's got the button!?
and these garden displays were so beautiful... so so so beautiful!
And some of the crazy weird items, including a gaggle of stuffed ducklings! (weeep)
A human skull (for reals!) in a cage..... next to a wooden cross and some tarot playing cards...
Mickey Mouse looked on as a giant glittery shoe gave a stall some serious glamour...
I loved the boots box... and gas masks.
Seriously, is there anything more unsettling than gas masks?!
As for this stall.....
I literally didn't know where to look - a medical body, top hat, chastity belts, prisoner made puppets and stuffed "hatted" falcon...
Not to mention the worlds most disturbing puppet....
suddenly the weird jars seem innocent and playful!
I can't wait for him to do it next year!
