York Doll House Fair

What a lovely day we had at a very friendly York doll house fair. Apart from the dozens of stalls selling pretty much anything you could want for a doll house, local club members display their creative work.

A stunning Lines doll house was centre of attention. It had been fully redecorated and was stocked full of beautiful pieces. Lines doll houses are amongst the sought after and admired vintage houses that, generally, are within financial reach, and they evoke wonderful memories of the 1960s and 1970s. I plan to add one to my collection at some point.

The workshops at the fair are a great way to both meet people and learn new skills. I can now make a brace of pheasants and a chicken dinner. More on that on another post when I have completely finished them!

I picked up some lovely bits. A bargain £3 kitchen table, and some stock items for the shop.

Teepee Crafts stall was as packed as usual. It's a great place to pick up findings and filigree that can be adapted for a multitude of uses.

Pictures coming soon!
