I visited the Decro Fair on the grounds of Knebworth House weekend before last. It was much quieter than the usual Salvo Fair which normally promotes this end of June event. Lots of wonderful architectural salvage, vintage garden furniture and the wonderful treasures of Beyond France
here's a link to their website where there's a huge stock of top quality linen and antique textiles for home decor and furnishings http://www.beyondfrance.co.uk
These gorgeous bobbins were brought for the shop last week and are now on Etsy with BrocanteArt. They are a time piece we can only wonder how many times they have been wound with wonderful silk, used int the production of endless textiles... the wooden bobbins are covered in silk thread in earthy colors with the odd pink blush and oyster.
