Great Dorset Steam Fair

Great Dorset Steam Fair logoWe went just got back fro this year’s Great Dorset Steam and Vintage Fair, at Tarrant Hinton just outside Blandford Forum. The show was as ever a fabulous celebration of vintage steam and artifacts with loads to marvel over and reminisce about! Steve particularly loved the steam ploughing sweating and dirty side of the fair whilst I really enjoyed the displays of old artifacts and bygones.

In particular I adored this war-time couple and the surrounding displays of wartime Britain 1940’s and 50’s homewares together with vintage china and coronation mugs. The chap here is rag-rug making from old suits.. fab!

Of course, we stopped for afternoon tea… with an impromptu picnic in the middle of the fairground served on our own vintage crockery. Sadly it was the only way you could get tea in proper teacups! But maybe next year Vintage Dorset will be at the show ourselves!
