Fair fever: Guildford Boileroom

As promised, I’m posting pictures of my stand at the Guildford Boileroom Artisan Boutique fair. I was really nervous beforehand but shouldn’t have been- I had a great time and met some lovely people. I was sorely tempted to buy things from the other stalls but had to restrain myself-  I would have gone into negative money for the day with all the lovely things there! For my first foray into selling, it was a success and I’m really looking forward to going to the Boileroom Christmas fair later in the year.

Here is my stand all set up and ready to go (apologies for the dingy photos, it was quite dark and the weather outside was so gloomy, which didn’t help).  I remembered to take float money, reading material and a chair but if there’s one thing I’d remember for next time, it’s take some additional lighting or muscle in on the spaces by the windows!

Small and simple as you can see

This is by far my favourite item: the mini teaset. It was unsold so still up for grabs! The gorgeous floral handheld mirror was the first to go.

A small selection of my vintage books- dating back to 1900!

Up close and personal- the vintage enamel bread bin, teacups and kitchen canisters

Stay tuned for more news on my vintage stall adventures: I’m hoping there will be much more to come. In the meantime, look out for more ‘Home trend’ posts this week and a tutorial on reupholstering an old sewing stool- one of my favourite projects to date!

Guildford Boileroom Artisan Fair

Exciting news!
I’m setting up shop for the first time ever at the Guildford Boileroom Artisan Boutique fair. I’m really looking forward to seeing what it’s like. I’ll be selling a mixture of antique, collectable and upcycled homewares including teasets, vintage mirrors, frames and cushions. No spoilers yet but I’ll post photos after if it all goes well. I’m really throwing myself into the deep end with this but if you don’t try it, you never know if it’s any good do you? It could be my calling!

The fair will stock vintage clothes, homewares and accessories. So if you’re in the area, stop by!
