Well Ive had a very busy weekend, two vintage fairs and an ill Husband.
Then today (Sunday 1st April) I went off to the South Essex Vintage and Retro fair in South Benfleet. Once again lovely people, great music playing in the background with a lovely mix of jewellery and clothing. Now today I bought 3 broaches. One was a lovely sparkly cherry it goes with loads of my clothes (I love red!).
Next was a lucky Ptarmigan Claw, this is lovely and came in its original box with original tag. It looks like new and has been looked after very well. I love it! The Ptarmigan foot broaches and Grouse foot broaches are collect able pieces of Scottish Jewellery and were originally worn on Kilts, shawls and cloaks. This style of jewellery became fashionable the Victorian era and was worn on hunting trips for good luck.
My next Lovely find was a handmade broach of a woman's face with a Union Jack hat on. Although not Vintage it is beautifully made and so stylish and lovely. This little gem is made by Peggie Sue Jewellery and she has some really lovely stuff available. I will pop a link to her Face book page at the bottom. Why not go and take a look and tell her I sent you!
