vintage in the vale fair | my pick of the best

I love the quirky-ness of this gorgeous shop in Ruthin!  The shop is full of allsorts; contemporary and vintage homewares and accessories…some of which I’ve recently treated myself to.  A pair of wooden sunglasses!  Also a stockist of Annie Sloan chalk paint!…see, told you it was worth a visit!

Adorable hand-crafted wooden products, based in Ruabon.  I couldn’t decide which was my favourite…but that top photo might just be the one.

Love Yourself, Naturally.  I could have eaten the bloody lot it smelt that good!

Oh, be still my beating hobo heart!…{did you see what i did there?! da, de?!}.  Now this was my favourite stall of the whole lot.  And I got home and kind of kicked myself a little that I didn’t buy anything!  Just look at those horses, and those hearts, and those birds…and look at the guitar!  Check the facebook page out because it’s definitely worth a visit.

The cutest owls and dolls!  And check out the cushion with the cock on it!

Cockerel, obviously…but I bet you looked again then, didn’t you?! ha!

Can’t beat a bit of cute stationery, can you?  Loved the prints, too.

Dreamy.  That’s how I would describe this stall.  From the beautiful candle holders to the cute, cute bunting.  Just gorgeous.


The Vintage in the Vale Fair is a collection of vintage and handmade gorgeousness {is that even a word?!} that takes place in Trelawnyd Memorial Hall.  I’m not sure how often it takes place, but thanks to  a photo I saw on Instagram that Saturday morning, I promised the bois bach some cake and off we went to the fair.  Wandering around with a ”ooh” and an “aah” at every stall is my kind of morning…not so much the “ALFIE! Don’t touch that!”…

The bois had their cake too and I had a very yummy slab of flapjack, eaten and enjoyed with  a paned to live music!…but because of one woman {who had serious attitude problems and thought she was in charge of EVERYTHING}, I won’t be putting photos of them up…but I’ve come to the conclusion every village has a woman like her…can you guess who?!  But don’t let her put you off, it’s a great set up.
