What a lovely day!

It's hard to believe that the Vintage in a Teacup Vintage and Retro Fair was a week ago already! We had a truly fantastic day, which we shared with some incredible stallholders and some amazing volunteers!

We have so many thank you's to say; to Mark, Deb, Seamus, James, Tim, Leeanne, Anna and Shelley for all your help in the tearoom and on the day (we literally couldn't have done it without you); to Helen and Amber at Elements in Perranporth for our fantastic vintage hairdo's; to everyone that came along on the day and supported the fair and lastly, to our fantastic stallholders and their collections of vintage loveliness!!

And as well as all these lovely stalls, we also had a very vintage tearoom. Serving the most delicious cakes, donated by our stallholders and friends, the tearoom raised a wonderful £123.18 for the Precious Lives Appeal.

After such a great day, we can't wait to organise the next one!!! ...Watch this space (literally)!

Holly Young's coming too

We're counting down the days now and I am so excited about the fair! I'm also excited to tell you about another stallholder who is coming along too; Holly Young makes the most beautiful and unique hats and fascinators, in a stunning mix of contemporary and vintage design.

Her beautiful collection of daintily elegant hats, facinators and headbands could be just what you need for a (Royal) wedding this summer.

Holly also offers workshops, so that you and your friends can learn to make your very own fascinator or hair accessory for your special occassions.

Really looking forward to seeing her stall on Saturday!

Some sad news but some exciting news too

Three posts in one day... you'll be getting fed up with me soon. Well, I have some sad and some exciting news about the fair. I like to end on a positive so lets start on the sad stuff!

Emma from Two Little Birds Boutique and Miss Curly Pearl is no longer able to attend the fair as she is now needed at her gorgeous little boutique in Falmouth instead :-(.

But, here is the good stuff, in her place we are very pleased to welcome along Sophie from Pink Peppercorn Vintage with her amazing collection of vintage clothes!

Here is a little look at some of the things she'll bringing along on the day!

Oooo can't wait!!

Hitting the headlines

Blimey these massive distances from Blogland really are getting too long! Since I was last here, Vintage In a Teacup 'hit the headlines' with a lovely little piece in the local paper. What do you think (apologies for the rubbish photo!)?

It was very exciting getting all dressed up in our vintage garb and having our own little tea-party in Mum's sewing room, whilst being photographed for the paper. What you can't see in the picture however is my little two-year old in the background in floods of tears, completely confused by the whole thing a wanting cuddles from his Mummy! Thankfully the photographer was very understanding and it was all over very quickly :-)!

Anyway, hopefully the piece has got the word out some more about the fair! I cannot believe that we are less than two weeks away from the big day (not to be confused off course with the Royal Wedding the following weekend!).

Excuse me for now whilst I get on with some sewing for the fair and I will be back very soon...I promise!!
