What to look for at a vintage fair

I'm planning to visit a vintage fair soon, and wondering what sort of things to look for, as I'd like to go with some sort of plan in mind, to hopefully avoid coming home with a load of mismatched tat.
I like modern country, Laura Ashley- type style, but also sixties style, as that fits with the age of my house.
Can these two styles mix; I always feel as though I can't get it quite right.
Would love to hear mumsnetters' ideas, also whether you like vintage fairs, and what sort of things you've found- any vintagey chat really.

I'd look for enamelware such as jugs, bowls bread bins. These can all look lovely with plants and flowers.
Also, baskets are useful for storing craft materials, magazines and plants or for just decoration that can sometimes be used.
