Hiya bloggers!!  If you have seen the button at the side of my blog page you will know that the second Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza is almost here!! Last year I was lucky enough to be part of the inugural Extravaganza and what fun that was.  Girls imagine a beautifully decorated old Hall filled with stalls and those stalls were absolutely jam packed with wonderful treasures.  It was sensational.  I remember wide eyed vintage lovers just in raptures over the beautiful items for sale.  We all had a fun packed couple of days.  I particularly loved meeting in person people I have dealt with on ebay for years..putting faces to names was just brilliant.  Now that the second show looms closer the level  of excitment is growing....the show will be bigger and better with more stall holders and lots more divine treasures.  I will be having a stall again and I have been collecting treasures in readiness.  I have decided this time to do a mix of some of my signature shabby floral pieces but also mix it up with some great old vintage industrial/french industrial pieces too. So there will be something for everyone.    This weeks market finds reflect the style of the vintage industrial pieces....Love the old Reckitts blue box and the wonderful old binoculars...they have a tiny compass in them too..soo lovely!!   I would love to hear from bloggers who are coming to the fair.....let me know what styles and pieces you are really interested in so I can make sure I have something thats such to make you gasp.    Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza is on at the Ashburton Scout Hall (337 High St, Ashburton, Vic)  check out Tamarah's blog for the dates and all the details but clicking on the button on the side of my blog!!
  And please come say hello..I would love to meet you all.  Cheers Sam
