The Art Of Elegance Fair

Last weekend we attended the Art Of Elegance Fair which was held in the Dunolly Town Hall.
Dunolly is a very small Country town, but it was nice to be able to support a Country Victoria vintage gathering. Us 'country bumpkins' don't get many of them, they are usually in Melbourne.


Miss Leah from Bell's Belles Vintage.


Lots of people rcognised me from my blog and said they love reading it, so that was very nice.  It is still a little disconcerting to have complete strangers come up and say "Hi Carli".  The first thing I think is that I have done something *very* bad to have them know my name. 
We had lots of photos taken of us, including with a group of Parisian motorcycling tourists!



Miss 10 and Miss 3 beelined straight for the Fairytale Frostings cupcake stall.  Mmmmm, they were so fluffy and light.


I scored this super large, floral Grindley teapot.   Perfect for my High Teas.


And even tho I really do not need another hand mirror, I couldn't resist this gorgeous little 50's one with a felted cartoon pinup on the front.

The next Art Of Elegance Fair is being held in Maryborough on Sunday 13th of May.  Fairytale Frostings will be hosting a Mini Mad Hatter High Tea!

    1. That blue dress was too small or it would have been mine!

  3. Beautiful teapot! Also love that adorable mirror. Did you find any "new" dresses? That's sweet that people recognized you.

    1. No new dresses at that fair, so I had to come home an compensate for my loss by buying one on eBay!

  4. Carli, have left congrats at Leah's web page, great to see you all there, and thank you for this post, which has caused some very good cheer locally and wider. There have been many, many comments on the vintage style of the girls who wear it so well. All of you looked wonderful, will have some more updates and images on the Fair blog as we go along, Monika & Tiffany
