Happiness is a Kitsch Pink Cat

Look at this wonderful kitschy kitty! It was a present from the lovely, talented and generous Viv of Hens' Teeth. I had seen this kitty on her stall.. ooh, last year, come to think of it. I really wanted it but decided I couldn't justify buying it for myself at the time. When I popped by her stall for a chat at the Vintage & Handmade Fair on Saturday, she just gave it to me! I nearly screamed with joy, I was so excited and pleased. I love it!!! It's just brilliant! Thank you so much, Viv!
I couldn't resist spending some money on Saturday, mainly concentrating on the small and cheap! Yes, yes, alright, that is another clog, but this blue one is pretty special, and has 'Belgium 1945' written on the side. Lovely floral painting on it too.  
I never got round to taking any photos, as usual, but Mr Kitsch took a couple of photos of my stall for me, so at least I have some photos of the day to show you. There's always such a great atmosphere there, and I managed to have quite a bit of chat with other sellers. All the stalls were full of fun things, and I enjoyed myself just looking at some of the amazing vintage textiles. I have bulging crates of fabrics, so I have forbidden myself to buy more. However, that won't stop me visiting the Vintage Fashion and Textile Fair in Chipping Sodbury in June.
My next fair for selling is the Vintage Bazaar in Frome on 30th April. Should be another great day. Hope to see you there!
