Newark Antiques Fair.

Last Friday Tony and I went to Newark, Nottingham to the antiques fair it is billed as the largest and my feet would say 'Yes it is' it was a lovely sunny day and we walked miles around the showground, there was so much to see some really beautiful stuff, we just love to browse, I did buy a precious pin cushion it was Victorian, pressed glass with a silver band around and a velvet cushion for the pins the cushion is very worn, I love that it means it was used and loved, I also bought a lovely brooch(Pin) it is pewter a long stalk and leaf with a pink Tulip head made from glass I love it. I found some nice vintage plain white cotton pillowcases they are lovely quality I will embroider these for presents, all in all we had a good day.

Every time I see that antiques fair on TV I wish I could go. I don't actually need anything, in fact I have way too much furniture and I'm not an ornament type of woman, but even so I bet I could spend, spend, spend :)
