A very funky abode.....

I would like to share with you some photos I took recently in a friends home.

Isn't it fabulous?

Each corner has fab & funky arrangements of kitsch goodies..

I love the way items are grouped together, like the perspex collection of bambi's in the hallway (shown above)

The kitchen is probably my favourite room & evokes childhood memories of growing up in the 60's and 70's.

As you know I am rather keen on 50's china too!

If you are seriously into kitsch then Bronia will be selling at the Rook Lane Retro fair in Frome on Saturday November 7th. Sadly I cannot be there as I will be selling at the Stroud Rag Fair at Bisley.. and Mr W is selling at the Exeter Flea Market at the Matford Livestock centre. There are just too many events to cover on one day!!! Stop press! Just found out that the Rag market in Bisley opens at 9.30 (not 10 as I previously said). Get there nice & early as there might be a queue!

It is fab & funky! Such a fun house.

Mr C & I will pay you a visit on Saturday but haven't received the new postcards yet......

Sounds like fun...Frome is down the road so I may try and pop along.

Rebecca said...

WOW! Thanks for the photos. So many lovely things all together - and Nice is one of my favourite china designs, lovely to see it on the wall!

What a fabulous home.
I spotted some Alfred Meakin china...I am rather a fan of that!! Lovely pics!

Donna said...

Love it. Bronia was telling me all about it yesterday, it looks fab!

Lovely to see you yesterday :-)

Glad you like the piccies of this gorgeous home. I am trying to persuade its owner to start blogging as she has lots to share!

Hi Liz,
Lovely to see a sneaky peek of Bronia's colourful home..she must find it very hard to know what to keep and what to sell...but I guess we're all a bit like that...

I'm beginning to think sometimes anonymity is better than publishing on the maybe Blogging isn't for Bronia?

Hope she does well at Frome - its probably a really good town to be selling retro/kitsch.

Have a lovely weekend,
Niki x
