The Vintage Bazaar in Devizes


 Big apologies for the lack of posts over the past few weeks. The auction in Bristol has been an all consuming project.


 So, as the last lots from the sale are bagged-up and taken away with their new owners it is time to turn my attention to the other big project, The Vintage Bazaar in Devizes!


 This coming Saturday is an important day for Clare and I as we launch our new event at The Corn Exchange, The Market Place, Devizes,  SN10 1HS


  Doors open at 9.30 and the event will close at 3.30. Admission is £1 for adults (children free)


 We have gathered together our favourite stall holders and invited some new faces along too.



 Full details can be found on the dedicated blog, TheVintageBazaar.blogspot.com or on Facebook here.


Look forward to seeing you there!

 All of these pretty dresses would be perfect for a Spring Wedding or Summer Ball.
