Thank you to all my customers, old and new, who came to The Granary Sale this year and very best wishes for a Merry Xmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
My Tube Map cushions have proved very popular and now all been sold. In their place I am making ones featuring Tower Bridge London which I hope will prove equally popular – great presents for boys’ bedrooms this Xmas.
It’s that time again! I will be selling at The Granary, Vale Road, Chesham again this year – see dates above. As well as cushions and scarves I have introduced other vintage items such as framed silk scarves, doorstops, daught excluders, silk scarf covered hangars and many other items. I hope as many of you as possible will come as there are 15 stalls all selling artisan products, led of course, by Candida Spencer’s gorgeous ceramics.
Venue: The Barn Church with its amazing stained glass window
Once again I will be taking a stand at this vintage fair in Kew, south west London. It has a great range of stalls, refreshments and entertainment and is open from 11am till 4pm this Saturday. Hope to see you there.

A healthy, happy and rewarding New Year to all my friends, customers and supporters and may 2014 give you as much as you put into it! New ideas to follow so keep an eye on the website.
A lovely way to show off your favourite scarf and create an original and colourful piece of artwork for your home at the same time. Here is one I had framed for my daughter’s flat and everyone who visits comments on it. It is an Hermes scarf – their take on flying ducks! – so a bit special but there are many wonderful designs that deserve to be displayed.
All the stallholders had a very good weekend at The Granary and one of my customers kindly sent me a lovely photo of her purchase (Venice Midnight Blue) in situ in her rather glamorous looking room. As always, many thanks go to Candida for a wonderfully organised event – view her lovely ceramics at candidaspencer.com.
A reminder of my earlier post about the above fair, now in its 9th successful year, where I’m introducing a new range of vintage fabric phone covers to see if they fly. Made from silk ties, some feature Disney characters and others are designer makes, they fit most types of phone and are ideal as stocking fillers.
After one of my cushions helped raise money in an auction for the Cornwall’s Children’s Hospice, I’ve now been asked to donate one for another charity, see above. My “Crazy Golf” floor cushion has been chosen as it’s a golfing event so I’m hoping this very worthwhile cause is well-supported.
