Vintage & Handmade Spring Fair 2011

After a busy few days I have finally got around to posting about the 7th Vintage & Handmade Fair which was once again a lovely day. The day started bright & early with stallholders unloading boxes & bags of delicious goodies. It's always like a big family reunion first thing with everyone doing a quick catch up in between setting up. It was a lovely spring day which brought out crowds of shoppers eager to grab a treasure or treat or two, so there was quite a crowd on the pavement by the time we opened the doors at 10am & thereafter there was a stream of visitors all day long.

I have just posted a few photos here of my stall - there are lots of look at on Flickr, posted by our offical photographer, Mr Cottage. These will give you a real taste of the day so pop along for a look here.

Once again, I just have to say thanks to all our stallholders & visitors for making it such a successful day & of course to our hardworking Tea Team & finally a HUGE thanks to my partner in crime, Michele!

Can you believe that we are already working on the next one? The Fashion & Textile Fair will be held on the 4th June - hope to see lots of you then! Details here.


  1. hi Jayne (I'm quick off the mark this morning- it's Housework Day and I'm trying to delay starting!) so glad that the day worked well, and look forward to meeting you in Frome at the Vintage Bazaar
