This past Saturday, my Ma and I headed over to Kent (I drove, did the m25, didn’t get lost, no big deal) to attend the Wealden Times Midwinter Fair. The Fair features hundreds of carefully selected exhibits of vintage and contemporary home and garden ware, gourmet food producers, vintage jewellery, and unique clothing companies. It seriously was the most beautiful fair I’ve ever attended, and speaking as someone who’s grown up in the South of England, you can bet I’ve been to my ‘fair’ share of fairs. (Heh. Get it? Fair! Well, I made myself laugh…)

We had the best time mooch mooching through the tents, stopping to look at all the beautiful pieces for sale, buying Christmas presents, tasting every sample going (Toffee apple cider! Cucumber and sweet pickle chutney! Cobnut brittle! Toffee vodka!) and taking a thousand and one photos. Well, I did most of the photo taking, naturally. Mum did some, when instructed, and under extreme duress ;)

 I think we’re going to make it a twice yearly event from now on (this year our tickets were very kindly provided courtesy of the Wealden Times, but I’d pay for tickets myself in a heartbeat) and attend both the Midwinter and Midsummer fairs. Oh, and the best thing is that Wealden Times have just launched their new website, on which you can browse and buy products from lots of their lovely exhibitors all year round! Dangerous. Very dangerous…


^^ Vintage baubles by Hilary’s Vintage Christmas. Aren’t they gorgeous? I love the idea of suspending them from the ceiling too. Now, I just need to convince Jason to put hooks all over our kitchen ceiling so I can turn it into a grotto come Christmas time…^^


^^ One of my favourite exhibitors at the fair was Ensor Interiors. Their range was absolutely *stunning*, and I could quite happily have taken home one of every piece. That rustic candelabra is incredible, don’t you think? I think I’d like to be the sort of woman who one day owns a house with a candelabra in it. ‘Oh careful there, watch your head on the candelabra.’ Yes. I can see myself saying that. ^^


^^ I loved these little vegetable patch signs by King John’s Nursery ^^


^^ I picked out a sparkler from this dish of vintage rings by Eclectica Vintage. Uhh…£5 each? Rude not to! ;) ^^


^^ Darling Moroccan bowls by Skoura. The yellow one is my favourite. What a bowl to eat your morning porridge from! ^^

More photos to follow, because there was just too much loveliness to fit into one single post!

p.s. I’m selling a few bits and pieces from my wardrobe over on Shop Cider with Rosie today, with free UK delivery on all items. Head over and take a peep, if you’d like! :)
