Feeling Festive already?! Eek!

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.

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!

Tea, cake and sparkly things!

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)

Cameo Brooch


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.
