Secret Vintage Fair

I love the Secret Vintage Fair, and this month it returns to Colchester on the 23rd...
There is always a real buzz about the event. There are bands, catwalk shows, vintage makeovers, as well as loads of traders selling vintage clothing and home ware, and handmade items with a vintage touch. Dottie Dollie is delighted to be trading at this event.
There is usually a queue to get in, and the first 25 through the door are rewarded with a super goodie bag. I like to put a treat inside, and this time it's going to be a bunny pin brooch. This morning, after a bit of a delay, the materials arrived, so I couldn't wait to get making....
Bunnies are cut out by hand

Bunnies get many coats of protective varnish in the sunshine

Bunny has a sweet side glance, and cute whiskers!

There are lots of brooch pins to glue...

There are quite a few bunnies!

I'm looking forward to meeting customers, old and new, at the fair, and a limited number of these bunny pins will be available to buy on the day, if you don't manage to get one of the coveted goodie bags.


  1. Do you think I could queue up for a goody bag? Is that acceptable?! ;-)

  2. I think you will be there early enough to be first in the queue! :0)
