Please vote for us!

 Just before Christmas, Clare and I had an exciting opportunity to assist and stage a photo-shoot for the front cover of the magazine Pretty Nostalgic.

 We all met up in Frome at The Cheese and Grain with our Vintage props, fabric, dresses, flowers and cup-cakes to put together a truly vintage image......It is the venue where we run our Vintage Bazaar, so an ideal choice!

 Local friends and business's assisted with lending items and soon the photo-shoot was taking place. It required patient and precise work to get it looking just right.

 My lovely old wind-up gramophone took centre-stage, to create a nostalgic and forgotten attic feel to everything.

 These sumptuous cushions are from The Weekend Bohemian.

 The end result is on the front cover of The January copy of Pretty Nostalgic, and inside the magazine is the chance to vote for your favourite Vintage Market. of course, it is up to you, but if you have visited The Vintage Bazaar in Frome, Clare and I would love you to vote for us.... pretty please!

I've got the recent edition of Pretty Nostalgic and I was really struck with how gorgeous and eye-catching the front cover was. You can tell the time and effort that went into staging it.

You certainly have my vote too!

Thank you so much for your lovely comments and the promise of a vote! We have worked hard to put the Vintage Bazaar on the map, and although we enjoy every minute of it... a pat on the back is appreciated! Lizzie
