The Little Vintage Lover Fair -Heydon

Real nostalgia came with a trip to the Little Vintage Lover Fair on Sunday.  I found out about it from one of my favourite blogs, Kitschen Pink. ( This just goes to prove that the hours I spend on the laptop reading about other people’s lives are not entirely wasted)

It was a lovely way to spend a sunny sunday morning in August.  A drive into the heart of the Norfolk countryside to the beautiful little village of Heydon, where the village hall was a early 20th century army hut, a perfect meeting place for a crowd of vintage lovers!Heydon Village Hall - Vintage Lover Fair

There were stalls both inside  and outside the hall –  thank goodness for a sunny day!

It was here I met not only Kitschen Pink, but also Mrs Bobobun and Faded Splendour and saw all sorts of lovely things I would have bought if only I could throw out another wing on my little house!  (Visit these blogs for lots more photos of all the tempting bits and pieces.)

Meeting them adds a whole new dimension to blog surfing! felt flowers

And I did buy this, it’s very small, but perfectly formed …!

About penny

I live in Norfolk, England in a cottage on the edge of the Norfolk Broads where it can be peaceful and beautiful, or wet and muddy, or occasionally wild and windswept. With me is husband Tim, Henry the elderly and opinionated tabby cat, and Higgins, the miniature dachshund with a massive personality. You’ll find me chattering on about wool and textiles, knitting and crochet, recipes, books and patterns, exhibitions and shopping and of course, the adventures of a small dog! Planet Penny has a Facebook Page, you can find me on UK Handmade and I am featured on Channel4/4Homes Favourite Craft Blog List.

    Dear Penny, I work for the Bronte Parsonage Museum in Haworth, and we’re doing a felt flower-making workshop soon. Because we haven’t yet made the flowers we don’t have any pictures, obviously, and I was wondering if it would be at all possible to use your felt flower pic (the one on the Kath Kidston background) above, to put into a promotional leaflet we’re producing. Of course, if the answer is No, I’ll understand. Thank you, Penny, and love your site!

    All the best,
