We recently enjoyed a few days at Llangoed Hall, near Abergavenny, South Wales and were delighted to find these two interesting items displayed on the wall. Apparently the Ashley family have had very close connections with the Hall but to see the first garment Laura Ashley made was amazing. If you sign up for sewing classes your masterpiece could be displayed in the future!

This is a photograph of Pam a regular at our vintage fayres displaying her huge amount of crockery etc. Her outfits always add authenticity to the day and she is a great character. See you at the next fayre Pam.

This stunning wedding outfit was donated to Vintage Vision last week. It was worn by Mrs C in the 1960s and must have looked amazing especially with the gorgeous matching shoes and hat. The hat is in the same fabulous fabric as the dress. We are very fortunate to have been given this at Vintage Vision as it looks as good today as it did half a century ago.

Once again our Vintage Vision cafe was a roaring success with hardly a table vacant. The 'kitchen staff' were kept busy all day although I am a little worried about the gentleman sitting underneath the suspended rolling pin!
