woodbridge craft fair

I had a lovely wander around the Vintage & Contemporary Market in Woodbridge this morning with a good friend.  There was lots of gorgeous vintage fabric and Nancy snaffled an amazing pair of vintage Heals curtains in this amazing print by Peter Hall – we await the planned transformation into a dress with baited breath!

I found myself unable to resist a piece of light summer cotton in a cheeky flamingo print by Tina Givens but the real find of the morning was this…

It’s an ‘MP Handy Guide for Knitting & Crochet’

Here’s the back…

still with original instruction label.

I had a scout around the ‘interwebs’ and discovered the very same item documented for posterity in the V&A musem.

We managed to dodge the showers (of torrential rain and hailstones!) nicely and were back home in time for bacon butties for lunch and what’s more, it was a rare ‘child-free’ morning out for both of us. Lovely!
