I cannot believe it is over 6 months since the last Rag and Rummage in the village of Trull!

 Happy memories of a packed hall, stands piled high with textiles and other goodies.....

On Saturday the 26th October we will be back there again, along with Ted and Bunny, Beyond France, Lucia CollectablesMuddy Dog, and others who, like me have been clearing out workrooms and cupboards to bring lots of lovely stock to this event.

 Doors open at 9am and the fair will finish at 2 pm. Admission for adults £1. Hope to see you there!

The Vintage Bazaar in Frome

This was Newark Antiques and Collectors Fair last Friday, a wet, cold and let's be honest, miserable scene!

I took very few photos this time, apart from on this extraordinary stand.....

Thousands of china dolls, all shapes and sizes.... laying on the soaking ground, all waiting for new homes...

I was very restrained,and just came home with one of these!

 Despite the murky weather, we had a good fair. Fortunately our next fair is inside, so we don't have to watch the weather forecast for the next few days. The Vintage Bazaar in Frome takes place next Saturday, the 19th October at The Cheese and Grain in Frome.

 We have been gathering Vintage Christmas goodies, as well as red and green ceramics and accessories perfect for the festive season.

 As always Clare and I have carefully gathered a fantastic selection of vintage stands with a mixture of stock which includes textiles, homewares, costume, handmade delights, jewellery and much more!

The Vintage Bazaar blog has more details, as well as a Facebook page here. Doors open at 9am, and the event will close at 3 pm. Admission is £1 for adults.
