A clutch bag presented on a plate is a bit weird , I know, but the colours were so good together it had to be done.These plates have got to date from the 50s so a perfect backdrop for a reprint of a Sanderson fabric called 'Festival' produced for the Festival of Britain in 1951, which gave British design and manufacturing a boost after the war.
A couple more pics without the plates just for good measure! The clutch has a removable handle and a dupion silk lining, complete with open and zipped pockets. The flap fastens with a magnet and shows off that great mid-century abstract design.
Come and find it and me at the Secret Vintage Fair on 26th May!
I've signed up for the Secret Vintage World Fair.

It's on Saturday May 26th and it's in Colchester. But that's all I'm allowed to tell, until a bit nearer the time or the Secret Vintage Fair Police will be after me.
I do know it's going to be a fun event with oodles of stalls, entertainment, a bar and a salon where you can be beautified in the best vintage fashion!
I've looked out some vintage and retro fabrics and am busy making suitable items. It's a bit difficult to know which era to concentrate on, so I'm doing a bit of everything. William Morris designs were very popular in the 70's. I have a piece of Sanderson 'Festival' (a recent reprint) which hails from the Festival of Britain in the 50's. I also have some bright 60's floral prints that will catch the eye!
Don't worry-if you buy a ticket they will email to let you know where to go!
Come and find me and I'll look out for you!
