December North London Vintage Market

I am very excited that I will be at the final North London Vintage Market of 2011 in Crouch End on 3rd December. I will be busy getting ready over the next week or so. Here are some photos of my stall at the October market.

In December I will have the usual mix of ceramics, kitchenalia and glassware with a few pieces of vintage jewellery and some nice textiles. New items this time will be a lovely Pat Albeck National Trust tea towel, some Rye pottery ceramics and a boxed set of Sherdley tumblers...

Kempton finds

Last month we made another trip to the Kempton Park market. These are a few of items I bought. At the back is a big Hornsea Studio plant pot with a geometric circles pattern, it's in excellent condition which is always key with Hornsea pottery which is easily damaged. On the left is a small Rorstrand lidded dish, the design is called 'Amanda' which I have not seen before. Front right is a very chunky Wedgewood 'Brutus' vase designed by Frank Thrower. I have a taller version too and they look good displayed together.

Another more sizeable purchase were these giant letters now on top of our book case!

Hat box

This is one of the star finds from our Cornwall trip, its a lovely wooden hat box complete with authentic luggage labels and metal edging. Purchased on a very wet and misty day trip to Lostwithiel.

Not much activity on the blog recently as I have been busy at work with an exhibition opening and we have just been away on a week's holiday to Cornwall.
