Fabulous Frome and the Vintage Bazaar


VJ had a wonderful day at the Spring Vintage Bazaar at Frome on Saturday.
Forgot to take any photos of the VJ stall (doh!),
 but managed to take just a few of some of the other lovely stalls.
Every stall was beautiful and piled high 
with vintage finery, frippery and fantastic one-off finds.
The fair buzzed all day ... 
old friends, new friends, fellow bloggers, characterful customers.
Thank you Lizzie and Clare for all your hard work and organisation.

A quick hike up St Catherine's hill after the fair to visit 
all the eclectic and tempting shops completed the day.
Several other Vintage Bazaar traders were spotted dong the same ... !

Wow Jane the first thing that comes to my mind is the sheer volume of stuff here, displayed in these photos alone, it looks like something that would have been a lot of fun to go and check out, there's so many hidden gems here!

~ Looks fab, Mrs VJ...Just the place for finding treasure and chatting with like minded vintage Gals! We had our selves a vintage fair, here in the Lakes....I did go last year and I think I was carried away with all the Jubilee celebrations....Ooh what a year last year was for our little island...Glad you had a super day! ~ Love Maria x

I'd have loved to have had a good rummage around there. Love the quirky garden stall, I do love old things in my garden just to have on display.

It was lovely to see you on Saturday even if we only managed a wave :)) It was a lovely day out and steampunk son enjoyed it. There was lots of temptation but I did manage to be very good and only spend a little. Catch up soon.

The heart does veritable flips and flops for all this colourful finery... sigh ... ♥♥♥

Hello, I just got back from England
and this fair I have not had time to see her,
and I'm so sorry it must have been beautiful,
a real shame! I hope that business will have gone well.

Fantastic! I've only managed to visit the antiques fair at the Cheese & Grain so far - and a quick (and productive) trip up St Catherine's Hill.
