Rose & Lee Vintage Living

Today I spent a very pleasant afternoon at Rose & Lee Vintage Living  showroom. She was holding a vintage and craft fair day. I have taken lots of photos as most of my blog friends would not be able to join me for afternoon tea and cakes and I didn't want you to miss out on the experience.

Aren't these things gorgeous. I call this style shabby chic but I am not sure if this is how Fiona from Rose & Lee would describe it. I would love to have a dresser like this in my dining room but then I would have to change everything in the house to match it.

I don't know if you can see the bed properly but it is huge. Lovely and ornate. I would have loved to try it out but I didn't want to wrinkle the bedspread. I love the ornate wardrobe. Oh to have a house big enough to house things like this. Maralyn is having a cosy chat with Kate at the end of the afternoon.

Somewhere in this photo is a hand sewing machine. I would love to have one of those but as I own a vintage treadle machine I cannot justify have another machine. Robert is taking a well deserved rest after making his wife Maralyn (One Vintage Lady), his sister in law and myself cups of tea and coffee all afternoon and butlering the cakes to me whilst I sat on one of the comfy vintage chairs and crocheted.

More gorgeous drawers and cabinets. Lovely shabby chic to grace a bedroom or lounge.

This is the sewing machine that I would have loved to take home with me.

Vintage clothes for sale.

More vintage clothing. These are part of the stall showcasing goods from 1 Vintage Lady  Maralyn and Robert/ The link will take you to Facebook if you want to contact about anything that you see on the rail or in this next photo.

They go to lots of vintage fairs so if you contact them they may do one in your area if you live in the North of England. Maralyn specialises in selling china and offers a matching service if you have broken a piece of your favourite tea service. They also sell vintage jewelry which I don't think that you can see in this photo.

The things for sale in this corner come from Deer Vintage Clothing. There is a some vintage jewelry on the table.

Vintage mirrors for sale from Rose & Lee.

Some pictures for sale and another one of many larger mirrors that are dotted around the showroom.

I hope that you like sharing these photos with me. If you could not get there in person then this is the next best thing. Everything that you can see in the photos is for sale so contact Fiona in the website link in my first paragraph of on their Facebook page Rose & Lee Vintage Living. What I didn't show was the gorgeous hand made candles that were dotted all around the showroom. The are so beautiful.

If you are interested in the china, vintage clothes and jewelry then contact 1 Vintage Lady on Facebook by following this link.

I didn't exhibit at the fair although I did take a bag of crochet with me including this huge granny square cushion that I finished off last night. I can make these in different colours and of a more normal size. This one is 24" v 24" and is only over a cheaper quality cushion pad that isn't washable. If they were made to order then the price would reflect a better quality pad that would be covered with fabric that would show through the crochet fabric. I would make the covers detachable for easy washing.

 I finished off my tiny tea cosy. Whilst this one is for sale I won't be making any more as Knitting hurts my shoulders and I knit very sparingly nowadays. I have got some crochet tea cosy patterns and also some different crochet cushion covers that I am going to make.

Today was a nice sunny day and I was able to wear one of my Summer dresses for a change.

Hope that you all have a good weekend .

What a beautiful place. I could spend hours there. I loved your cushion Jan, and also the tea cosy.I think you are very clever, with your video, I feel as if I am sat down in your lounge room. Enjoy the sunshine Jan.
