This Vintage Life

 No stopping for a breather after The Vintage Bazaar in Frome on Saturday. We had a super-busy day in the Cheese and Grain with 900 energetic shoppers thronging into the building.

 Next stop on Sunday morning was the newly opened Vintage Quarter in Wilton, near Salisbury.

A Vintage event for outside stall holders was taking place over the weekend. We were soon set up in a Marquee (with heating!) 

 I couldn't wait to see the rest of the buildings. Vintage 57 and Snooty Fox have the most wonderful space on the ground floor.

 Textile temptations in this gorgeous shabby cupboard..

 It was fab!

 Upstairs is another Vintage area, sadly my photos didn't come out too well as the sunshine was pouring into the room. I met up with Claire from Lost and Found Vintage. who had sooooo many tempting treasures for sale. How I resisted a blue striped French bed cover with blue roses was nothing short of a miracle.

 The rest of the fair was divided between other buildings, in one of the rooms I met a lovely lady called Anne Marie who knits the most delicate and pretty scarves as well as other pretty Vintage inspired treasures. I am sorry that I didn't buy the green scarf with polka dot spots. It was stunning, but I do have rather a lot of green scarves to go with my collection of Vintage green coats......say no more.

Happy Christmas everybody and all the very best for the New Year. Thank you to all the readers of my humble blog, see you somewhere in 2013. Lizzie x
