Vintage Fair at Valentines Mansion

Last weekend we visited the Vintage Fair at Valentines Mansion.  My experience of vintage has been a lot of junk and some really cool stuff that is usually really expensive, but always some interesting bits to spot, so I was curious enough to go and have a look.

Shutterbug sister came with me and as the mansion is set in the lovely Valentines park we took the babies with us.


 The mansion itself is a lovely setting, accessible and not too big so can be navigated fairly quickly.  The big stained glass windows are one of the eye-catching features




The vintage fair itself was a series of stalls laid out in rooms on the ground and first floor.  The stalls were selling a mix of handmade cards and jewellery, interesting post-war items like letters, crockery and signs, lots of clothing from the 1940’s to about the 1980’s and furniture.  I like things that are reused, recycled or upcycled, so was pleased to see lots of reclaimed items turned into interesting objects.
