Fab Time at The Vintage Bazaar

Saturday was an early start for us to travel down to Frome for The Vintage Bazaar.  It was really strange travelling all the way there in the dark, like driving in a tunnel.  I do have some pics of the day but they are on hubby's Iphone so I will upload them to my Flickr account later.
It was lovely to catch up with some old faces and meet some new ones.

True to form I raided Ali's stand as I was next to her which was fatal.  We always buy something from one another.  This gorgeous hand embroidered panel must have been made for a wedding dress, it is exquisitely done, but I will be good and sell it on at some point.

This rather gorgeous round wooden box covered in faded floral fabric just had to come home with me, I purchased it from Tracey of The Vintage Bothy.  It was lovely to catch up with her and M as we haven't seen each other for yonks.

Two lovely beaded garters.

Yet more gorgeous 1920's beaded fringing...as if I need any more.

This lovely old chap just had to come home sporting his rather fetching Edwardian Child's Mohair coat and Vintage hat.  There is a rather lovely picture of him with my hubby over on Sophie's Blog, Fading Grace, she also has some lovely photographs of the day.

Two yummy pink paisley eidy's I couldn't resist from the lovely Cecile and her hubby at Elegance Maison.
A big thank you to Lizzie and Clare for all their hard work and attention to detail that made the day such a huge success for everyone.

The downstairs is now looking more like a theatrical costumiers thanks to all my costumes and textiles but as you know I do have a penchant for the ostentatious!  Have a great week whatever you are doing and a Happy Halloween.

  1. Lovely buys Jo....especially the bear in his little coat!


  2. You have found some gorgeous bits as usual Jo, I like the bear too in his lovely coat. I may not see you on Sunday as we aren't selling this time but we may get along as customers. We are busy preparing for Market Harborough so hopefully we will get the chance to catch up with you there.
