Our first fair of the year!

This'n'That is off to sell at the Homespun Easter Fair in Portscatho on April 1st. This picture is from their lovely blog. Take a look to see who else will be there


Thursday, 27 December 2012


I've been meaning to share these lovely old classroom pictures for some time.  There will be more as we unpack 'stuff' from the shop stock and 'stuff' from our house move!
I guess that many you blog followers (as past This'n'That customers or past Nostalgic Mix visitors/sellers) know the delights of 'stuff'!!
2013 should shape to be a different but busy year as Paul and I decide which vintage fairs to visit as sellers and where to go as buyers 
Look out in the spring for selling on the blog (....at last!) and probably some on Ebay.

Anyway, here in Brixham ....

Today is Thursday
It is sunny!

More news soon.
Love from
Lesley and Paul

Nostalgic Mix Vintage Fair Saturday, October 13th

Not long now!! How time flies.  Sorry no blogging lately.  We are in the middle of moving house at the monet and, as is common, it's been less than straightforward!!
Anyway, Paul and I are all set for Saturday.  The fair opens at 10.00am and closes at 4.00pm.
Admission is, as usual, free of charge so please come along, bring your friends and famil, enjoy the shops in Totnes and the market as well as the fair.  Lots of our regulars make a real day of it and some are finding B&Bs to have a whole weekend in Totnes.  Hopefully, we have booked good weather.
There are lots of regular sellers and a few new ones so the mix will be as nostalgic and rich as ever.
See you there I hope.
Love Lesley XXX

So long ... no blogging! Where has summer gone?

Had a great time at Portscatho. Must find my missing camera chip and blog them soon. Have been really busy with trying to sort out our 'after the shop' chaos at home ... more news therw soon.

Meanwhile it's the run up to NM5....the fifth Totnes Nostalgic Mix Fair. One of two regulars have family stuff so I have a couple of tables available.

If you are interested please email me on lesleyloach@btopenworld.com

If not as buyers I hope that lots of bloggers can come along to enjoy the day.

Admission is free.

We are open from 10.00 am - 4.00pm

Avril will be there with her calorific 'More Tea Vicar' retro teashop.

The picture or the blog header can be copied for your blogs or emails. All help with publicity is very much appreciated especially since we no longer have the shop.

Sellers, don't worry though, we are doing lots of advertising! local newspapers.
I have advertising materials which can be sent out far and wide (flyers, postcards, business card sized ads .....etc.
