Our local Costa had their Xmas preview last night. Mum and I spent a lovely couple of hours eating yummy cake, sipping tea and having a chat to the fantastically hard working baristas.
Cornflake Christmas Puds
Despite having a great night (and I have to say, I did enjoy humming along to the Xmas tunes), it did leave me wondering whether I’m going to be sick and tired of Christmas by December 1st? Ah, well it’s a chance I’m willing to take!
Today I went to one of Judy’s Vintage Fairs in Leamington Spa. The venue – The Assembly in Leamington – was perfect as the building was quirky and nearby parking was easy to find and reasonably priced.
There was a range of vintage clothes and jewellery stalls, a lovely tea room upstairs and a beauty salon housed in an amazing vintage caravan/trailer.
Yummy tea and cakes
After the tea break, I got down to the serious business of shopping! I got a lovely tweed blazer for the bargain price of £10, but my star buys today were these lovely pieces of jewellery from Ring O’ Roses:
My Little Pony (adjustable ring)
I also picked up this cute little Mona Lisa cameo from another stall:
With an entrance fee of just £2, I really would recommend visiting one of these fairs. To see the upcoming fairs and dates, click here.
