Vintage Jumble

On Saturday, Family Biddle headed over to the little village of Rangeworthy in Gloucestershire for the Vintage Jumble Sale. Organised by the ladies behind the Vintage and Handmade fairs, it was an opportunity for all their usual sellers to get rid of old stock and for vintage hunters to pick up a bobby bargain. Held in a village hall where the echoes of many an am dram spectacular could be sensed, the WI were on hand to serve tea and cake.


We picked up a prettily painted towel stand in mint green for the miniature sum of £9, along with these lovely textile bargains.
This little patchwork quilt was £3.50 and reminds me of the Laura Ashley brown floral prints which adorned my first nursery 30 years ago ...
White tablecloths are ten a penny, so I loved this vintage green number for its unusual colour and dainty hand embroidery. I think it might make a nice shopping bag ...
A four metre strip of luxurious and thick tapestry ribbon which could look lovely decorating a simple cushion cover ...
 I loved these delightful flower shaped buttons in navy and cream, and so nicely displayed too ...
