Uncannily, the photo on the flyers really DID capture the feel of the fair!
Thankyou Lizzie; even though you've been so busy with The Bazaar and your many other commitments, you still took time to display
Vintage at the Village Hall advertising on the front desk. . .and "heartfelt thankyous" is what this post is all about.
I've been so touched by all the interest and help promoting my fair and want you to know it's really appreciated. So much has come from people I've never even met!
Stallholders at The Bazaar, and other antique fairs and markets who have taken stacks of flyers
Shopkeepers, Antique Centres, all the workplaces, business premises and community centres who have displayed posters and flyers
Advice and The Voice of Experience from other Fair holders!
My lovely stallholders who have done, are doing and are going to do posts for the fair on their blogs
Our local printer for displaying the poster in his window and photocopying it foc for a lady who enquired about the details!
Emails I've received from fellow bloggers around the county offering to distribute flyers. . .
the list goes on and on, and there's still 4 weeks to go!!!

ooooooh I just LOVE this quirky vintage 1930s theatrical prop mannequin, her linen body is covered in Union Jack flag bunting!
Now, the dilemma is. . .do I get to keep her :))). . . or will she go to the Village Hall??
For me or not for me. . .that IS the question!

My task next week is to select the cakes for the Village Hall kitchen.
I've decided definitely on lavender muffins which I baked for Shirley's wedding cake-stack, and also a good old-fashioned boiled fruitcake, but if you have a favourite tried-and-tested cake recipe, that's easy to bake in a large quantity and will freeze or store well for a few weeks, please send me any other ideas you think will fit the bill.
For some strange reason, Ted has expressed rather a lot of interest in this aspect of the fair and says all suggestions will need to be thoroughly tested. . .;-0)
