The Dairy House Vintage Textiles and Costume Day


 Just had to share these images from yesterday. It was the 3rd Dairy House Vintage Textiles and Costume Day.


 The sun shone directly onto Chloe's stand which was piled high with exquisite handmade treasures.



 Inside the Dairy House the rooms were decorated and ready for the eager shoppers who arrived promptly at 10 am, and then continued to arrive throughout the day....






 Some of the best photos I took were on the top floor where the light was perfect for my temperamental old camera!




 It was a very special day, and you will no doubt see plenty more photos in blog land this week.
 Here is Niki's stand. How I resisted that cupboard was nothing short of a miracle!


Sadly, the Textile Day marked the end of an era for us. we have very reluctantly given up our space on the top floor, so will no longer be trading from there. The restraints of a full-on job in Bristol and the increasing price of fuel has meant that it is no longer a viable side to our business.

Hi Lizzie,
It was a lovely fair, wasn't it? You took some great photos - I shall try to add mine later this week.

(The cupboard has found a very good home...I shall miss it myself though! ;-))

Can't wait for Saturday...Have lots of stitching to finish, but plan to knuckle down over the next couple of days. Thanks for all your hard work in organising the Vintage Bazaar...It always has a great atmosphere and seems to be very much enjoyed by stallholders and visitors alike. .
Love Niki x

what beautiful items, and how frustrating to be so far away from where the vintage action is! You'll be frolicking in Frome while I languish in London! ah well…
