Wonderful Woodbridge Weekend

Well what a lovely weekend we had. Mummy butterfly & I decided that we would stay over to save the driving, early mornings & most importantly sample some of the local cuisine & fabulous restaurants. We went to The Cross for dinner Friday evening for some scrummy vegetarian delights (poached eggs & asparagus for dipping = yum!) & great service in an eclectically cool surroundings. Saturday was The Crown which has had a huge make over & is stuff of décor magazines! The service was exceptional & food was lush. Another good evening.

Anyway we were there to sell our Butterflies & Hurricanes wares. The set up was in the quaint market square & it looked very pretty indeed. Candy striped roofs on the market stalls and bunting fluttering in the breeze. A great selection of lovely crafts, delicious food (the stall next to us had the best goats cheese, pesto & asparagus pasty) & tempting vintage clothes & homeware.

Of course I treated myself to a couple of vintage dresses which I shall post later this week – I may need some expert reader advice picking outfits for some events I have coming up!!

We met lots of lovely customers & caught up with super duper stall holders which is always fun. I think we could talk vintage for England!

Check out the knitted bunting! It's awesome & was displayed by St Elizabeth Hospice stall. Their stalls are dangerous as they are piled high with goodies... I am the proud owner of a large round vintage suitcase. No real need, just liked it!!

Apologies for the lack of photos of the rest of the market, clearly I was in a self absorbed mood - I shall have stern words with myself tonight.

Oh I also recently picked up some bits & bobs to adorn the stall. Old tins which sold very well, some picnic bits (I don't know why - memories? bright candy stripes? Magpie? all of the above!).
Oh I hope you like my denim bunting too, made out of old jeans & shirts. Not quite as effective as the knitted version but I like it. xx
