Flea Market Style from USA

When I used to go to America regularly I always used to look for the magazines on Flea Market finds and Shabby Chic, my old copies are worn old favourites but still spark off ideas and the look is definitely different.
I found through the Blog world I could get one from a lady dealer and in the course of it all I found these stencils in her Etsy shop so I had a lovely parcel today along with some chalk board tags I also got from Margo.
A very retro look I am sure I can do something stylish with them

Customer Request Girls ????

We are planning to come to Poundbury for the sale on Wednesday. What we are particularly looking for are small tassels and fringeing to sew into cushions. It would be great if you could let me know if you have a selection, and if so what kind of thing and how much. We have some lovely vintage textiles, ikats, and hand block prints which we need to accessorise.
I look forward to hearing from you,
Kind regards
Lucy Comparelli.

Les Allees and Old Albion Bridport Vintage Market

Well done Sharon of today was great fun and had a lovely buzz. The dealers of the units on St Michaels estate Bridport down les allees threw open their doors and had a market.
Sharon had invited a few other chosen dealers to do market stalls and the girls who are opening the cafe had an outside tea room plus a lovely old fresh pizza waggon was serving up delicious food.
They hope to do it on a Sunday afternoon once a month and I for one will be going .it seemed such a good atmosphere, not many textiles but loads of vintage clothes decorative items and furniture. I think there is room for we textile girls
