Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza ! 13 and 14 August 2010 - #2

Yesterday, dear Trad Padders, 
I told you about the Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza.  
Well, to-day was move-in day. 

Don't ask me if Tamara (who is organising all this) and her dearly beloved Matt slept last night.  I know that Herself was over there until well after midnight helping put up wonderful white tissue paper balls on the rafters of the Ashburton Scout Hut in High Street Road, Ashburton.  The Scout Hut is still a Scout Hut but now it is a Scout Hut with pizzaz and quite a large helping of swish.

To-day, I saw wonderful stuff being unpacked and displayed.
There are ten stalls but a cornucopia of variety.
Shabby is there in spades
with all that would gladden Rachel Ashwell's heart.
Vintage and retro is there in all shapes and colours.
Wonderful linens and handcrafted stuff -
that would delight not only the modern woman
but her mum and grandma - are all over.
And junk is there as its glorious self
and re-jigged in marvellously creative ways.
Talk about re-jig, re-use, recycle.
And for those of you who love your food,
I have singled out for special attention
Mrs Beeton's Cookbook
which comes complete with
handwritten recipes and etcetereas.
Just look...

So please come to-morrow and Saturday.
8am until 5pm Friday
8am until about 3pm or so on Saturday.
There are not many opportunities like this to purchase
from a multiplicy of specialist stall holders.
Please ecourage the efforts of 
Shelley, Andrea, Robyn,
Callee, Jane & Kaz

See you when you are shabby shopping 
at the Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza

Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza ! 13 and 14 August 2010

I have been sporting a sidebar badge for the Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza for quite a while now, as you can see.  It is on this weekend and the redoubtable and indefatigable (don't you luv the way they trip off the tongue) Tamara is all talk about it over at Shabby Vintage Junk.

Things are on the go here as Herself has been organising since way back when.  And things are still on the go.  The handles and knobs above will be there. As will some of the stuff below.
One whole living room is jam packed with stuff and has been for quite a while.
But my guess is Herself will be coming down to the wire
with some things......

See you there Friday and Saturday!
