Amazing Axbridge......

A few weeks ago I told you about the 2 day fair at Compton House in Axbridge. It is open for the rest of today until 6.30, and then from tomorrow from 10 until 4.
If you are able to go along, you will have a real treat. This beautiful old house is crammed with stalls selling everything from Lavender soap to fabulous cushions (made with Vintage fabrics)

This display cabinet has vintage china & great handmade items with a Christmas theme

Beautiful cushions are piled high on four poster beds & window seats...

Painted baskets with delicate china...

This Posting box was on display in one of the bathrooms!

Funky Seasonal lampshades.....

.. and even live music while you shop.... this guy was really good!

I fell in love with these felted bags.....

Another bedroom was full of silk clothing & these fab brollies. If you can get to the fair tomorrow I am sure you won't be disappointed as there is so much to see..... and I haven't even mentioned the willow workshop in the basement....

Oh why do so many wonderful events all clash and then nothing at all on other weekends! I shall be exhibiting at Frock Me! at Chelsea Town Hall so can't get to Axbridge, sigh...Good luck if you're standing and good hunting if you're just 'prowling'!x

I wish that I lived just a little bit further south, I seem to miss all of the great, interesting venues. The Cotswolds North of Tetbury are lacking in these fairs! I am trying to make a modest dent in this problem by opening my Vintage Bothy in Winchcombe and as you may see am trying to get a lovely blog, such as yours and others that you follow!

Hey Lizzie, thanks for your comment on my blog. Forgive me but I did meet you at Donna's didn't I last year? Looks like you are doing really well there is always so much going on down there.

Hello Liz
Yet another fabulous event that I have missed! I am hoping that in 2010, I will get a lot more ME time back. I have enjoyed your class of 1979 post! So good to reminisce isn't it.
All the best for tomorrow
