Frock up Brisbane Fair
What a splendid thing it is to discover that not only has the sun finally decided to shine after weeks of rain, but there is a vintage fair on this weekend. I had missed this fair the last time it was in town, this time I was determined to go and have a poke around. And my goodness, I was not disappointed.
There were vintage frocks galore and beautiful hand made bags,
lovely piles of vintage sheets and fabric,
some wonderful kitchenalia, and something very special, can you see it hiding at the back?
Yes, that would be a box set of 1971 Richard Scarry books,
four gorgeous hardcover books,
yep, they absolutely came home to our place. So many new stories to choose from at bedtime.
and these lovely pyrex ramekins came home too ( well the bottom four as I had the top two already). Now just to find the ever elusive turquoise one..... is it just me or is turquoise pyrex as rare as hens teeth?
So while we spend the rest of the weekend choosing our favourite stories, feel free to head over and enjoy the final day of the fair tomorrow. It's called the "Way We Wear Fair" and it's on at the Mt Gravatt Showground from 10-3 or head over to Frock up Brisbane if you want to know more.
