What a fabulous time I had at the MILITARY FUN DAY!
Despite the threat of hurricanes and rainstorms everyone braved it to enjoy a glorious day at the Mill Race Garden Centre!!

There was everything a 40s and vintage fan could wish for...
With an impressive array of vintage military vehicles, people in uniforms and a stunning 40s soundtrack playing to us all day, you felt like you had stepped back in time!
To add to that feel, there was even a fascinating reconstruction of a bombed out French café and an original Second World War pillbox.

It really was brilliant to have so many people dressed in their immaculate wartime uniforms, from British soldiers to American airman and aircrews. And they really know how to dance as well!

So despite a pesky breeze that played havoc with the stall all day, I had so much fun and met so many great people. I had a huge amount of interest in my pictures and collages. It was also the first time I'd expanded my stall to sell some vintage items. I'm very pleased to say, I sold almost all of them!!!
So watch out for more items on future stalls!!!

A big thank you to the A VINTAGE LIFE team for organizing this brilliant day and also to the staff at the Mill Race Garden Centre, who very generously gave us free teas and coffees!!

Here is the stall, had to have things flat on the table as they would go flying with that pesky wind!
A view of some of the stalls, note the uniformed shoppers!
A Vintage Life's Annie Andrews kept the troops entertained!
Just some of the amazing vehicles on display.

This beautiful Chrysler seems to have a new fan!
A step back in time. The original wartime pillbox at the garden centre.

This superb French café scene, with Annie Andrews doubling up as Resistance fighter!

The cutest guard dog ever is telling us the bar is open!
