Fabulous Vintage Bazaar

Last Saturday we were up bright and early and heading down to Frome for the much anticipated Vintage Bazaar organised by Lizzie and Clare.

We arrived early with enough time to set up.  The standard of the stalls was excellent as usual.  There is so much gorgeousness to look at you don't quite know where to begin.

I took along a selection of items from ballet dresses to haberdashery items, and yes, you have spotted a mannequin for sale, in fact I sold two as I am kind of running out of room here at home.

We came back with a fairly empty van, apart from a few little purchases which I will tell you all about in a mo.

Everyone setting up and getting ready for the customers.  I also had the privilege of meeting Dee and Jane, two lovely fellow bloggers.  I love meeting people in the flesh so to speak and to me it reinforces why we do this.  There are so many lovely like minded and inspirational ladies (and gents of course) out there.

Debbie's gorgeous gardening stand.

Down to the purchases acquired.  The gorgeous French girl came from the lovely Sophie from Fading Grace who we were standing next to, her friend Kirsty was there to help her.  The lovely Ostrich feather plume came from Ali  (Betty and Violet).  The gloves and nightdress case came from a lovely stand, I am sorry I can't remember who you are, but I am thrilled with them.

These sweet little corsages and Victorian scrap book pieces came from Debbie and her hubby that had the beautiful gardening stand.

These beautiful rustic French shutters also came from Debbie, and I am hoping that hubby can do something with them so I can use them for a display prop on my stand at future fairs.
We arrived back home shattered, but it was such a wonderful and inspirational day, meeting lots of lovely customers and the atmosphere was so friendly and full of laughter.  Thank you to Lizzie and Clare for organising such a wonderful fair.
